Hi All,

Looking for a little help, my friend is trying to sell her sailboat and I thought the best place to start would be to get some feedback from those in the know, that's you.
She has a 30 foot Morris sailboat, deisel engine recently rebuilt, the head was rebuilt to comply with sanitary code(no longer dumps overboard) the sails are good shape, the cabin is plain not what you would expect from Morris but it is the original hull 1st model turned out (double ought original), the rail is split and the radar has to be installed after they restep the mast.
We have to get some more info to post once we get out to the mooring and ck. We can send pictures if helpful.

what does she have and is it special or of more value because it's the first edition(sort of speak), is there a minimum value for a sailboat this size and make-like don't take less than xxxxxxx regardless of the shape, or maybe there is a site we could go to and get more info.
We are out of the water on this, any help, suggestions or....

Thanks
Troch

Were it me, I would be on the phone to Morris...207-244-5509, they broker a lot of their own boats, and many of their owners are right proud of their boats. The first one may or may not be important to a buyer, but even with a Morris, condition and history are going to be important for top dollar.

Could be a Leigh or Annie, if I recall correctly, that from the late 1970's

All the best

Are you sure it is not a Morris 29'? I did not see a 30 footer listed on their website: Welcome To Morris Yachts | Morris Yachts - boat builder of daysailers and ocean series semi-custom yachts

I own a Tartan 27' sailboat. Hull #1 used to be at our present club and was bought back by Tartan to use as a promotional item. I doubt they paid an excessive amount for it but you never know.

Post pictures when you can. I have a Leigh hull #7

Could it be a Victoria 30 built in England in the mid 80's?

Interesting.

Definitley post pictures. I am not interested in the boat. But would like to see the pics. I would guess a Morris would sell pretty quickly.

Thanks for that pic and spec Brian. What a boat!

Hey All,
I knew you guys would respond to a civilian in distress, some great comments I will follow-up on.
Thanks for the suggestion on calling Morris, actually she bought the sailboat from Morris in Maine, paid over 50,000 and they said fix it up and sell for 80,000 ([I] don't know), and that was 3 years ago. We will call!
It is a Leigh, she remembered after I read your responses, and I will send pictures.
I am looking for suggestions ,comments and sites I may wish to visit and I got a little of all that; well I'm sure your all in bed by now so you can make the early tide and I hope to be able to provide some more info and pictures so we can get a rough number on worth before we throw ourselves to the sharks.

How many men does it take to screw in a light bulb? it depends on which forum they come from; my attempt at humor-feel free to use it and call it your own.

Troch
