sailingfool will become famous soon enough
Given condition and upgrades, I'd say something pretty close to the asking price.

worth only what a buyer would pay for it...to some, with all the work that has been done, and the reputation of the boat...she may be worth the asking price.

The real world competition would show she is worth about 1/2 the asking price at best, to the right buyer.

Would love to see the boat, as she apparently has been redone by an owner who seeks perfection.

Thanks,
I have made a couple of offers on the boat and we are close to an agreement. The owner is also including a Caribe hard bottom dinghy that has a Yahama 15hp outboard. The only issue is the finances. I can't pay cash for the boat and bank financing is not very favorable for older boats like this.

I would point out that upgrades completed over a 10 year period are probably due for a revisit. A boat is only worth what a person is willing to pay for it. I am no expert on particular makes of boats etc, but given the age of the vessel, the equipment and if the actual condition of the boat is advertised, if the sails are in good shape and the enginehas been well maintained I would offer $125-135k for it but would not pay more. I am by no means a cut rate shopper either, just know that well found yachts of that vintage, similar build quality and in similar shape are going from $95k to $185k or so.This one seems to be somewhere in the middle, thus the pricing.

Edited to add: Just saw it was repowered so that would up my personal valuation by 5k, so 140k.

Good luck!

Yep,
Done to the point of having custom monogrammed towels in the heads with the name of the boat!

Plus points new engine and generator. High quality interior finish.

Sails and rigging 30 to 50% through their life.

At first sight I would say worth 140K -150k
