Looking for Fixer upper Cruising Sailboat
I was looking for the same thing, but the broker kept leading me towards boats that were actually close to being ready to sail away. All said and done, I spent more, but got much more boat for my dollar. Now, with a boat loan, I am off sailing for 500.00 a month. Taking the "fixer-upper" route, I would be spending over 250.00 just for storage, I could only imagine shelling out thousands of dollars for equipment and parts. bite the bullet, do the math, then buy a boat that is ready to go. BTW, I bought a boat that was someone''s dream gone bust. Those are the deals and they are around, you just have to look.
