Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I wasn't really being serious about sailing up from Portland. I mostly wrote it because I thought someone else might write it later.

There is a boat called Sloop Du Jour docked near me in Shilshole, though it isn't a Tanzer 26. Cute name.

How easy or hard are title transfers for boats purchased in BC and registered in WA? I didn't look at BC boats due to that concern, but I also didn't research it heavily because I found plenty of boats to consider in the Puget Sound.

Finally, Port Townsend has a very large marina. If you make an appointment to look at that Ranger 23 then you should schedule it early in the day and take some time to walk the rest of the marina looking for "for sale" signs. There are a lot more boats for sale than what shows up on CL and Yachtworld, and I don't know how to find most of them without just seeing for sale signs.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

For you Washingtonites. Is it true that once I buy a boat I have to go sitch the title to my name and pay about a 10% sales tax on the purchase price? An tricks to get around that?

That would be a reason to buy the C&C in Portland.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Whether you buy the boat or not in WA you are supposed to transfer the title, pay sales tax (varies by county, but 8-10% is correct), and register the boat in WA. If you are not going to keep the boat in WA (take it to OR after the summer) you would want to title it in Oregon.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

i like the newport 27 listed in Bellingham, i think that would be a hard boat to match for what your looking for! I also keep my boat in bellingham, i might see if i can find it, i will let you know what it looks like in person!

ok, that would be good. I did get a chance to talk to him as well, let him know I was coming up early next week. Didn't seem too flexible on price, but nice guy. Sounds like a good boat too. He definitely sailed it.

Looks just like it does in the add, no surprises, has a nice mainsail cover, everything looks pretty decent! For the money, from what i can see, seams like a good deal.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

ok, thanks for taking a look. It looks like boats are selling pretty slow, so I've expanded my list to include a Kirby 25. I think I'm leaving sunday. Hope I pick the right one.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

i know ive been extremely disappointed when ive gone to look at a boat that looked good in the pics, but was a mess in person. The Newport lives up to its add! Is the kirby in bellingham as well?

That Kirby looks like it might be at Shilshole. If I see it on one of my neighboring docks I'll take a quick look at the exterior.
