Wow. TaShing is one of the 'premier' Taiwanese yards. Only down side will be the 'screwed-down' teak decks, if not already replaced. Probably a Panda 40 or Baba 40.

Of course, you will be buying this boat sight unseen and likely AS IS... and it could well be severely damaged, especially if it was confiscated from a drug dealer or something similar. The transmission may be severely damaged, so consider that when placing your bid.

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.

Just start at $150-160K and back-out the price for all the 'consumables' - engine, decks, sails, electronics, 15±% for structural repair, etc. ... and that would be a close bid.

$150k to $160k For a 1983 40 foot Chinese takeaway NO WAY!

Half that might be a reasonable starting point but I would not work from this premise anyway.

This would be a gamble even at 5k so you need to decide "Do you feel lucky?".

You would probably only need to replace the heads, transmission, wiring, fawcets, shower heads, plumbing, water tanks, fuel tanks, fuel lines, cushons, upholstry, steering cables, prop shaft, stuffing box, hatch lenses, re-powdercoat hatches, windows, port gaskets, port lenses, recore 1/2 the deck, any stainless steel from crevice corrosion, lines, sails, anchor chain, refrigeration, toe rail bolts, propane lines, propane tank, headliner, winches, blister repair, paint, and varnish, countertops, thru hulls, electronics, rebuild the engine, heat exchanger, water heater, exhaust hose, exhaust loop, batteries, battery cables, and lugs, alternator, inverter, fresh water pump, sump pump, salt water pump, fuel pump, fuel valves, sea strainer, lighting, heating / cooling system, vhf. Should only take about 3 years for 1 person to do full time. Oh and don't forget yard fees! So offer a BUCK! And be prepared to walk away... everything in a 30 year old boat will cost you money to take to the dump, and there isn't a nut or bolt you will remove that you won't find a problem underneath, or something done wrong. Oh and when you are done, it won't be worth half of what the parts cost, and $0 per hour of your time, and after doing all that and more, you won't even remember how to sail when it's ready to hit the water.
Spend twice as much as you can afford on the newest boat you can find, and go SAILING NOW! I will check back in 3 years, tell me I was wrong, and I will give you the dollar. It's the last one I have.

Gee, don't be such an optimist. Tell it to him straight. It says no preview prior to auction. If one were interested in such a boat it would be worthwhile to go see. You only find things if you look for them. That's how I found my fat old ketch.
