Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

It looks awesome.

Yeah, I've written somewhere else on here how my first boat had rotten wood backing plates for the rudder....

my second boat, a catalina 22 had a fractional rig put on it...

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

How's the shopping? Did you make it up to Puget Sound yet and check out of any of these boats in person?

By law, you've got to title it in Washington if it resides in Washington.

Here's a tip though: Washington recently changed their vehicle/boat licensing rules such that the tax is based on the fair market value, rather than the sales price (too many people claiming they bought their car for $5). However, when I titled my new-to-me sailboat last year (a 1981 Spirit 28), DMV couldn't find the model in their database, so they relied on the title slip figure anyway.

What I wished I had done, and what I'd encourage others to do, is to negotiate your sales price such that you separate the boat from the contents (most used boats include lots of stuff inside). When you fill out the title, ask the seller to indicate the price of the boat only, not the contents. No sense paying tax (again) on dishes and life jackets. Up to you and the seller what fair value of that stuff is.

If the boat is on the DMV database it probably won't matter, but if not, you might save a few bucks.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Current list:

27' Catalina Sailboat

Ranger 23

Kirby 25 Sailboat

25' sailboat: Capri 25 named "SYZYGY"

http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/boa/3685964342.html

http://seattle.craigslist.org/kit/boa/3689724938.html

Why is that Catalina 27 so cheap? They aren't normally that cheap. He said the bottom hasn't been painted in about four years but thereabouts hard growth. Seems a good deal.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

That Catalina 27 doesn't appear to have any cushions (just generic chair cushions are being used), old sails, and might be an inboard model with the outboard retrofit to it. It's hard to tell how well it has been maintained and is an older model. The price seems inline with what I'd expect.

For the same price this Catalina 25 looks better, thought it does have an old motor and the original ugly, uncomfortable, and likely smelly cushions:
25' Catalina Sailboat - Tall Rig

The Catalina 25 is about the same speed as the 27 (it has the same waterline length), but doesn't have standing headroom unless you are 5'8" or smaller, and has a little less interior storage.

Based on ads alone I think I like the Ranger 23 and Santana 27 best of your list, but the Santana ad is missing a lot of information (like sail condition and good interior photos).

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

Is that tartan 27 still for sale on Whidby? I think he was asking 6500, but its been for sale long enough that 5 might make it happen, the guy asks for offers specifically in his add.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I don't know, I haven't seen anything listed, I'll check.

The tall rig Catalina does look nice, but has a swing keel, I don't think I want a swing keel.

The Catalina 27 according to owner, never had an inboard.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I didn't notice the swing keel, I agree on avoiding those if you don't have any use for a trailer.

The Catalina 27 was made in both inboard and outboard forms, it's nice that this is an outboard model. It is easy to see which version the boat is from the rear, but they don't have any good photos from there. I still don't think it's an amazing deal, but it could be if you do a careful inspection and haul out and see that it is in good condition with no blisters or a smile or anything else. If it has new sails, an autopilot, recent rebedding of deck hardware, new running or standing rigging then it's under priced.

Re: Sailboat under $5000 for Puget Sound

I assume you've seen this one?
1980 US 25 sailboat

It leaves you a lot of left over budget.
