Re: Anyone ever sold at a profit?
I bought a Catalina 30 for $25,000 and sold it for $28,000 after using the hell out of it for 5 years, I did add some stuff to it, Autopilot, Bruce anchor, BBQ, and a few other accessories that don't add up to much. The bottom was painted a year before I got it and I didn't paint it in the five years I had it, at haul out for survey the paint still looked good and didn't have any growth (wish I knew what brand it was). I had canvass covers on all exterior brightwork so I only had to varnish once. Like I said I sailed the hell out of it, almost every weekend and here in So Cal that is year round. I'd say I made a profit because the cost of owning v.s. renting (almost every weekend) was cheaper.
