Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

Just realize that boats can have negative value. If it is in really poor condition, it will cost more to dispose of the boat than it is worth. Like others have have said, if it is in good shape maybe $20-50k. The value of boats depends a lot on the equipment aboard, thus the utility of a survey.

Re: question for experienced boat owners

"It may be that simply moving the yacht out of State could save you quite a good deal of money."
A good idea on the East Coast where there are many states, but more problematic when moving the boat out of state means out of COUNTRY as well, and a whole new set of problems can complicate the simple sale. Sometimes, it is simpler and cheaper to render unto Caesar and just be done with it.

Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

I would ask if anybody from Sailnet in the San Diego area could go have a look for you.
This would give you a good starting point at determining what type of condition it is in.
No need to hire somebody when there are plenty of people here with good knowledge.
Just as a first step.

Second, you said you were in Ohio and had no use for it, but I have to tell you, She would make a great Erie Boat.

Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

I can't see a substitute for hiring a reputable boat broker in San Diego and having them list the boat for you. Even a good boat like yours will likely not sell immediately, unless you are willing to take the lower range of its estimated value. The key to this sale process going smoothly is finding a good and honest broker. They are out there but you must research them thoroughly.

I couldn't think of a worst thing to give. A thirty year old project boat to a person who can't sail and has no interest in it, plus has a baby to take care of.

Please help the guy out by getting it off his hands and mind for the best price he can get.

Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

1. How do we know it is a project boat?
2. Maybe he doesn't know how much he loves sailing until he tries. He has a great head start.
3. Started our two girls at 18 months. Nothing wrong with it.

This could turn into a real "What If."
What if I had done that when I was younger, than all of the sudden life passes you by.

Re: Question for experienced boat owners/sailors

If anyone in the San Diego area that knows a lot about boats would like to go look at it, I would like that just to see what they think it would be worth. I also have some pictures that I could send of the condition of the boat, if there is anyone willing to take a look at them and give me their opinion. Thanks!
