Hunter 27 for 1k

Found this on Ebay when I was just skimming what was out there.


I'm sure there must be something wrong with it... I wish I was a bit closer to take a look.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

With an auction, you never know. Recently I have seen prices so low on ebay that I think something must be wrong with the boat, but usually sellers are reasonably honest. Maybe it's the economy.

This is a boat angel deal. You cannot see the boat before buying it. I was contacted by someone who bought one who asked me to look at it before he sent a truck.
I saw the boat and it was one of those negative value deals.
They can often be in a location that will cost a bit to move. You have to pay before they give you the address.

Then you are responsible to move it regardless of the value of the boat or the cost to move.
I'm not saying that in every case it will be a bad deal but in the case I knew about it was.

As a followup I called the guy who won the boat angel deal and got the back story.
I was correct he had to pay for the boat before he was given the address of the boat. He never saw the boat but he gave me the address and I took a look for him. It had no interior and no engine and no sails. Rig looked pretty good.

If he got it for free and and it was in his back yard and he did not count any of his time he would have been able to get it fixed up for about 400% of it's fixed up value.
The boat however was a couple hundred miles from his shop so he abandoned it.
I was worried that since my friend owned the boat the original owner could send him a bill for disposal and/or rent. That didn't happen he just abandoned his boat and the original owner had to deal with it. It was just luck in my opinion that my friend didn't have a legal problem.
