Indiantown fl

the yacht broker in Indiantown FL seems to have a huge number of sailboats on the hard, and a bunch for sale that look to be in rough shape generaly, but priced lower then most other brokers in YW.
Has anyone done business with them, or have an opinion about how they are doing down there?

I am in Indiantown marina working on my Morgan 384. It appears that the reason there are so many boats for sale here, both power and sail, is that this is the last place the owners get to before giving up cruising. There is a very large storage area for those of us who only sail or cruise for 6 months of the year. There are also boats that the owners have started work on to fix up and for what ever reason have given up and walked away. In that case the marine has taken ownership and there is a special storage are for those boats.
The dealer here is a good guy and has what he has to work with.
Good luck.

I liked the broker there although he can be a little hard to get hold of as he turns his mobile off when he is with a customer [ plus point ].

I found him to be honest esp. when asked questions about value. Being quite open about some on offer where the owners for some reason or other had unrealistic expectations.

Some of the boats on offer have been decaying there for a year or two and will need MAJOR clean ups so yes some of the stuff on his list is needs a careful look.

That CSY 44 looks like it might be good value at 59k asking with a Yanmar.

Big plus point if you buy there is the yard is happy with DIY and there are god support services around. I had some steel work fabricated there for a very reasonable price in town.

Yachts in Indiantown have the stereotype of being in worse condition than those slipped elsewhere, say in Fort Lauderdale. Indiantown is an inexpensive place to store and get work done. Below is an example of a common conversation.

Big Red: Hey, there is a KP44 in Indiantown.
Black Fox: She is probably a wreck.
Big Red: Yea you're right. Indiantown is where boats go to die.

Just be careful. Good to hear that you can get an honest opinion from the broker there. And that is a good point that you are in a great place for DIY work. Could find a real sleeper there. Have a sunny day.
