Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

The PS Orion is a very well regarded and nice boat. That one looks like it could use a good amount of work. It actually looks like it was being overhauled at some point, and then was abandoned. That is going to make it less attractive for most buyers. Hiring a surveyor would help you figure out actual value.

A friend recently bought one in much nicer condition (and with better equipment) for $45k, so I worry that some of the estimates that you are seeing in this thread are on the high side.
