I'll share the thought that this is a Katrina salvage operation. Thats fine so long as the price is sane......which some of those are not. Maybe he's just high balling us. Perhaps we should low ball him with $25, then meet in the lower end of the middle.

Dictated, but not read.

I wouldn't call this one's asking price crazy. The engine might be worth $500 as a rebuildable core, three speed winches worth another $500, and so on. $1800 is high, but is in the ball park.

How about $140,000 for a 1982 32 foot ferrocement "Custom Hermaphrodite Brig"?

SD, lighten up on that seller. He paid good money for my special seminar on HOW TO MAKE MONEY IN SALVAGE YACHT SALES and he's been working really hard to snatch 'em all up for that hot resale market. Apparently flipping homes wasn't making as much money for him as he wanted and he was very happy to pay the $49.95 seminar fee, plus another $495.00 for the first DVD set, PLUS $459 more for his first three months of unlimited phone support and the special INSIDE HOT TIP SHEET ON HOW TO BUY "TOTAL LOSS" YACHTS, which is available by subscription only.

You know, with real estate busting, there really aren't too many options to MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR HOME IN YOUR SPARE TIME and this is one of the best ones out there. I'll bet it would work for you too, if you had the committment to attend the seminar and start using the system.

I found my M275 on ebay. I was in the market for this type of race/cruise boat. These are highly regarded here in Ontario and demand top dollar. This one owner boat for 20 years was brought south to Annapollis where I don't think it is very common. That combined with my strong CDN dollar made it a bargain on ebay. I bought her sight on seen and got a boat that was in excellent condition. Mirages are also known for excellent build quality so I had that in my favour as well. I honestly feel like I found a diamond in the rough that cost half the price of a similar boat here.
