Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

I think they're just super anal about what they think it's worth. I can understand if you've put money into something and hope to get it back, but as with most things, it's not reality. The ads here are filled with boats with survey prices that are way higher than the price they're up for sale for, hell a lot of them are asking for less than half their survey price.

These people just seem to have an unrealistic view of what the market is. Though you'd think after 2 years or more of trying to sell, they'd start to wonder why it doesn't sell.

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

Sure, but I'd still be interested in paying close to asking price IF it came with a slip at that marina. I'd love to live there, but I'm not willing to quit working in Vancouver, or move up to Squamish for however many months I'd have to be there to be considered for membership.
I've talked with Ben(the OP) about a few boats as he's been looking at.

26k asking is not a big deal when the per year difference on moorage could be 6000$...

Likewise boats for sale in Spruce. They often sell at asking since slips there are so coveted.

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

Well, and all this said, the 9.2c is gone. Was a beautiful boat, would've been absolutely perfect for myself and my cats, and the location was far beyond ideal for me, but alas... My GF and her two horrible cats need space as well. I've been trying to convince her to get her own boat. She's tiny and the S2 8.0c would be perfect for her, and moorage on two slips in the club would still be trivial. She's not as excited about the proposition of two boats as I am, so I'm looking for something ... unfortunately larger.
