This has already been a complete insurance write off and is priced as scrap. The question... is there $25,000 worth of scrap left in the boat? I think not.

It looks like a pile driver worked over the hull. I'd offer them $1.00 for the boat and a guarantee to haul it off the property. That will at least get the yard talking to you.

As has been already mentioned, you're going to need a nice deep project checkbook to bring this boat back to life, but considering the value when completed, I'm sure it would be worth the effort.

The hawg's right, y'all just a bunch of perfectionists. The OP shows a link to a nice fixer-upper, as an opportunity for less knowledgeable noobs to own a project-boat and the same clique of elitist sailors dogpile on him.

It's only a few digs, dents and fissures - nothing a few gallons of Marine-Tex can't cure . . . sheesh!

Yep - and those cushions are VERY classy, just need some Febreze and they're good as new. Must be worth a few Euros . . right?

I was thinking we could fill in the holes in the hull with some polycarbonate to look at the fishes as we sailed over...
