Cliff - It looks like a great boat. Clean and well maintained.

I recommend you get a list of the recent Yachtworld SOLD dates and prices for this specific boat. Those are available from Yachtworld to brokers, and probably your surveyor. That might help you determine if you should raise your price, and if not it can be helpful in persuading the seller that your offer is reasonable. Actual sale prices are a lot more relevant than other listings. Many listings are way overpriced.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.

Cliff,

Looks like a nice boat, you should go through the exercise of figuring out what the boat should be worth and make you next offer accordingly. Don't assume you need to get it for 10% below asking to have a good deal, nor assume that 10% below asking IS a good deal. You need to decide what this particular boat is worth to you, then go with that price. I sold my last boat for the asking price, to the first person who looked at it - we both got a good deal.

A few comments on equipment. Not much for baterries. Staying in a slip, if not then a Heart inverter system would be desirable. Only a 140% genoa I would think a limitation for use in early and late season, plus the breezy day you really want to get to home port. These shortcomings are easy to address with just a little $$$.

OK, so I'm a fool...there's nothing new there. I went off line and made a counter offer before I read all of your posts. They accepted 112K. I looked at all of the other selling prices of Beneteau 361s for the past two years and the average was 111K for the 2001s. I went by and visited Her on the hard again today. We had a little conversation. If She takes care of me and my family, I'll take care of Her. I'm still in love. Oh well...I'll let you know how the survey goes...Giu, I'll have the ports checked. Can't wait to get Her in the water. Heck it's only money...right????

CliffL-

Just remember the price is usually subject to re-negotiation based on the results of the survey and sea-trial.

If you love the boat...that's a very good sign. I hope the survey goes well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

CliffL - you are making a great buy. I meant to post earlier. We were seriously considering a 361, it was more money here on the west coast, might have been a bit newer, but still, its worth it. Any Bene smaller than that, I feel like they cut corners in places they shouldn't just to try and make the boat interesting, or fit everything in. The smaller ones just don't seem right. Except for the First series, but thats not what you want for what you need. I sailed on one here, and the owner (sailortjk1 also) gave her great reviews and all the owners clubs do too. I really wanted the one for sale here, but I wasn't ready to shell out 135K. They are beautiful boats, I especially like the blue hull like sailortjk1's.
Have a blast!

Hope survey etc. go well, as SD mentioned terms may be altered dependent on survey, wouldn't usually ask for a routine maintenance type issue. But something like blisters etc. I'd try to get the seller to absorb. In the meantime everyone here who feels he didn't pay a little over market for at least one boat please stand up, looks like everyone's still sitting.
