Boat Listing

Hello Everyone

I have spotted the boat in the attached link.

I am considering it for a 1st time "beater" boat where I won't mind if I damage it.

Its in my price range and 30 ft which seems good.

What do you experts think of the listing?

thanks

Andreas

Re: Boat Listing

I'm curious about why there's an outboard. It must be for a dinghy but I didn't see one mentioned in the listing.

Otherwise it's all about the condition. If the engine is in good working order, the rig and sails are in usable condition, and all or most of the systems - water pressure, head, battery charger, etc. - are working, it could make a great starter boat. Talk to the broker, see the boat, get a feel for what kind of shape she's really in and what you'd have to do before you could go sailing.

If you plan on spending any significant time down below, I'd budget for some new upholstery. Those have got to be the original cushions, with 30 years worth of boat smells and mildew. Unless you just love that classic '70s plaid!

Re: Boat Listing

Survey, survey, survey. If its structurally and mechanically sound it might be a great boat. I would not call it a "beater".

Re: Boat Listing

+1 on the survey, should your interest in this vessel lead to an offer.

Re: Boat Listing

Agree this does not look like a 'project/beater' unless a survey turns up significant issues. The price is reasonable given the required TLC and cleanup, but if the motor runs and the rig's intact it looks like a good prospect.

Some of these boats had wooden spreaders.. keep an eye out for that.

This appears to be a diesel boat for an A4 price.. it's also had the bowsprit mod (common) but make sure it's been properly done.

Re: Boat Listing

Wow. A $15,000 boat is your idea of a "beater?" I would put a "beater" into the sub $3000 category, or better yet, free.

He's from NYC. Their concept of value is different.

Re: Boat Listing

OK
I apologize for the "beater" comment.
What I really meant was that it was not brand new, so I would not cry if I put a ding in it and such.
sure, I am a spoiled city slicker.
