I need some info on Endeavor 52

Greetings folks!
I am watching an add about a 1989 Endeavor 52 for sale, but it is kind of difficult to find comments on them, pictures of interior or previous owner's experiences with them.
I did find the factory specifications, interior layout, and sail plans.
Someone on this forum mentioned that there were only two 52s made that year?
If that is the case. Will they be...classics, antiques, rare birds?
Or...had they design problems and the co. stopped making them?
I learned that her mast is quite large(66') and won't pass through the fixed bridges on the ICW.
I will really appreciate your feedback o this matter.
Thanks in advance
J.A.

Thanks!
I am planning to buy an E 52' in 'proyect boat like' condition, and I would like to get some opinions from previous owners and others with knowledge about this boat's sailing abilities and stability among other features.

A 52' boat in 'project like' condition? Run.... run far and fast unless you really love restoring boats and have the $$$ resources to do so.

Buying the EXACT SAME BOAT IN GOOD SHAPE will cost far less than buying the "project-condition" boat and refurbishing it. When you're refurbishing a boat, you are generally paying retail prices for bits and pieces of a 52' boat...and that adds up very quickly.

Unless you have time, money and space to do this, buying a 52' project boat is going to be a nightmare.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I may get her for $25K. The hull is sound, and the engine needs routine maintenance and repairs. The standing rigging looks fine, and blocks and winches appeared to need only service. Steering is OK(cable). Deck-hull connections and bulkheads are solid. No sign of leakage.
A friend told me that with another $25K and a couple of years on the hard(a $100 a month yard), I may get her ready.
Sails, standing rigging, hull and bottom paint have to be renewed.
The boat's interior is asking for a %75 renovation.
The plans are to live aboard once she is ready.
Thanks for your advice and opinion. Everything counts.

I found a few of the same for sale in pristine condition in the $175K + range.
I'm trying to make numbers here. I have the time(2 to 3 years) for the proyect...and the money...well...it comes and goes .

heres a link to an Endeavour site that should have some info Endeavour Sailboat Owners Discussion Forum

I'm sure the 52' Endeavour is much different then my 32' or the 42' s I've been on but they are very soildly built more for comfort then speed but are very stylish.

It sounds like you have the cost thing figured out and when you say project condition, I think all boats this age mine included (79) always have something that needs doing. For a live aboard i'm sure it would be a great boat once you have it the way you want. Good luck
