Is this a good deal?

I found this O'day 22 for sale on Craigslist for $900 and was wondering if that is a good price for that kind of boat with trailer. The owner say's the rigging needs to be inspected and the cabin is dirty and the last time he took it out was last year. I tried to post a link but I need more posts in order to do that.

Re: Is this a good deal?

Great, thanks for the quick reply. The boat is located in Cleveland Ohio. The craigslist title for it is "O'day 22 Sailboat on trailer".

Re: Is this a good deal?

It could be an excellent deal but there is no way to know without inspecting the boat and trailer. I saw a 1975 in Mansfield Ohio for 3k. PLEASE OP...can you provide more details? If you spend $900 how bad could it be? if you want help from well meaning folks here, give us more information please. The answer is yes--it's a really good deal...if....and if and if and if....and if....etc etc etc

I'll take it from here CatMan22 ... (beat ya to it!)

O'day 22 Sailboat on trailer

That is not a bad price for a 22' boat on a trailer IF it is all there and functional.
Is there an OB motor included?

Yeah I know sorry about the lack of info, I just saw that boat literally 20 min. ago and have not even talked with the seller. I emailed the guy and asked if he would take $700 because if he does take that offer then I figured i'd drive up there and take a look at it. I also figured that for $700-$800 if he counter offers as long as there isn't holes in the hull how bad can it be?

Re: Is this a good deal?

There is just not enough information...go look at here...take pictures, you will need the trailer inspected. How are the sails? Is it well equipped? Is there an outboard? One weird thing is he admits the boat is dirty and says he'll goo and ask MORE if he cleans it? That's odd... why not clean it and make it presentable and ask a higher price and go down if needed but to say he'll go p if you want her cleaned? Is he hiding something? The trailer alone could be well over $900 in value...but...just take a good look and then go for it--not worth a survey or much more time and energy..

I'm not sure. I will have to find out if the guy even responds to my email, for some reason people around here on Craigslist are hard to reach.

Re: Is this a good deal?

A word of advice...if you or any OP wants ideas, comments or suggestions from we the other members--at least do your basic homework so we can help you....and ...so much of these types of questions depends on who you are and what is your skill level rather than the boat alone. How well can you asses the condition? Prices for such a mass produced boat ca be determined easily via the internet. Do your homework and then come back here so we can be helpful to you.
