Boat for Land Offer,
Please, donít scoff, instead ďseaĒ into this unusual trade offer.
I have Lakefront Land and will trade it for a cutter rigged, monohull, sailing cruiser. With Good Faith and some basic legal effort, we can make a fair trade.
If you want to trade your 20 year old cruiser for a relatively safe recreation and retirement, waterfront homestead, away from the Gulf hurricanes and turmoil, let me know.
I own one premium lakefront lot and Iíll trade it for the correct, cutter rig, semi-heavy, sailing cruiser: 1985+, something between 34-43í, in excellent condition. My intention is that it will be my live-aboard in California, where I live, and eventually my cruiser to the South Pacific.
Here are some Desired Boat Examples:
(R. Perry) Toshiba 40í, Tayana 37í, Valiant 40-42í; Hans Chris 38í; (Pacific Seacraft) Crealock 37í; Cape Dory, Cape George, Gozzard, or Garden cutters (any with non-leaky teak decks or non-teak decks).
I like old, safe, classic and comfortable shoes.
Here is the satellite image of the Bear Branch Cove Development, in which my land resides. Itís on the right shore of the right fork in the picture. The lot includes the rock land peninsula sticking out 60í X 30í into the cove from the right shore; it looks like a boat dock, but isnít:
My land is 500+ ft. peninsular shoreline of deep-water lakefront property, in a prime location on Lewis Smith Lake in Winston County, northern Alabama. It has water, phone and electricity underground. The lake contains 21,000+ sq, acres of water, 250 ft at the deepest and over 500 miles of shoreline. Itís about 75 minutes from NASAís Huntsville, Alabama; 110 minutes due south of Nashville, TN.
I purchased the land in 2006, free and clear for $260,500 and owe nothing on it. The Winston County tax rollís values it at $266,100, up because the neighbors have built their homes. I have a 4,700+ sq. ft. floor-plan, designed specifically for the lot, valued at $30,000, which Iíll throw in.
The whole land deal for me was to include my wife and kid but she bugged out, so my eye for the land has changed. My eye for a cruising life has not.
I have title and a very recent land survey and much more detail Iíll share with any qualified trader. Contact me with your boat information, PM.
All questions are welcome.
