There's a reason why this "business" doesn't want potential bidders/buyers to see the boat in advance, and I doubt that the reason is beneficial to the person that may end up with the boat. They are a sales entity and if it would sweeten the deal for you to see it, they would let you. If it sours the deal then that is why they don't want you to see it. If they were above board there would be no reason for protecting the identity of the owner and keeping the boat from you until the deal is sealed.

Could you imagine any reputable yacht broker telling you that you could not see the boat before paying for it? Would you buy a used car without ever seeing it or test driving it? Then why in the world would you think of buying something that has the potential to endanger you and your family without thoroughly checking it out first??

Run, don't walk, away from a deal like this.

The engine pictured appears to be a Universal 4 Cyl diesel, with a new-er coat of silver/white paint... That would probably be a 5424, or M30.

I was careful not to post my feeling about their business practices. However, I will state here that I wouldn't deal with them for ANY reason.

Thanks folks!

I'm glad to hear some people have had good experiences with these guys, but I won't be going after this one. It might be a great deal, but ultimately I'm not willing to take the chance on a boat without a thorough personal inspection and survey done in advance. I'm also not willing to try and sneak one in between my agreeing to buy and my paying (as was recommended on that other thread - thanks for linking that Faster).

I'm glad I'm not the only one who gets real nervous when people start asking for money without letting my see what I'm paying for. Also, at the end of the day, 35' is a bit bigger than I really need. It's only more moorage and upkeep to pay.

I spoke with the previous owner of this boat and he told me that you can stick your finger through the bulkhead on the port side.

Thanks for the update. Big surprise, eh?

There is also copious amounts of silicone around all the deck fittings. I would guess there is lots of deck core rot. The port side chain plate wiggles a lot if you push on the shroud and the deck around it creaks when you walk on it.
I seriously thought about bidding on this boat, but without a close inspection...no way.
