Sold My Boat, Now What???

Hi all,

Well, I sold my boat after two long weeks of listing it. It happened so fast that I still have some seller's remorse. I have been looking for a bluewater-capable cruiser for a while and now I can look in ernest (money in hand).

Boats I have looked at so far include the CSY 44, which I really like, Valiant 40, Endeavour 40, Islander Freeport 41, Gulfstar 44, Union Polaris 36, and a Cal 39. All nice boats with different things to offer.

What I am looking for is 40'+ with good build quality and room for under $100K. Speed would be a plus, cutter even better. I want to look at Tayana 37 and 42's, but have not seen any yet, and there is a Bayfield 40 in San Diego that I want to check out.

I am open to suggestions, so let 'em rip. I am in SoCal.

Cheers, Bill

4 of your choices are Perry designs, remodels or pirated - pay him his consultation fee and ask away.

Re: Sold My Boat, Now What???

Think out of the boat.

Owning a boat is like owning a cabin or a time-share or a .... You are committed to one location.

Just go sailing in all the places that you had wanted to do so. Charter, walk into to the office, get the keys and go sailing. Bring the boat back in good shape. Someone else will do the oil change.

After 34,000 miles of sailing other people's boats, I really do not feel the need to have my own.

Jack, that is the triumph of reason over passion. What about the "MY boat" factor? I enjoy working on them and customizing them at least as much as sailing them.

I have a friend who thinks much like you - he's always been in group owned boats. He's one of shrewdest people I know but he misses out on a lot that way as well IMO. He's also started buying out his partners as they swallow the anchor, instead of soliciting new ones.

In a city it makes a lot of sense to use cabs & transit instead of owning a car but then I'd miss taking my Corvette or my wife's supercharged Jag out trolling for speeding tickets.

Sailing and sailboats whole purpose is passion, not rationality.

Re: Sold My Boat, Now What???

I would much rather have dinner down below and watch a movie on a rainy day on my boat than anywhere else on earth. For something in the range of 100 days per year, she's our home, not just a sailboat. For around 60 of those, she is a sailboat. We could not have what we want by sailing OPB's.

Good luck in the search.

Re: Sold My Boat, Now What???

Congratulations on selling in this market!! I think the demand for Catalina 36's must be pretty high because I just sold my Catalina 36 a few weeks ago (after a month on the market) and found myself in the same situation. Immediately got seller's remorse after spending some time on the market (there really is a LOT of crap out there). My price range was exactly where your is as well. I ended up stretching a bit to get into the "perfect" boat we happened upon, but I had my eye on this one when we were looking; and while I don't regret it at all, I do wish I could have arranged to see it in person before we found our new boat.

When I was looking a month or so ago, it was listed for $95,000, now down to $89,000.

Yeah that one looks amazing from the photos. Having said that, I've traveled enough to be skeptical even with the nicest looking boats on Yachtworld.

Still, might just be worth a look!
