Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

Those were the only two showing in YW, so either the boat has finally sold, or it is not being listed as a 36-2.

In the larger world, again? Maybe racers know Kaufman, but racers don't want an old less-than-spectacular race boat. In the larger world? "George Kaufman" oh, right, you must mean Kaufman and Hart, the Broadway composers ! Rings the wrong bell, doesn't it? (G)

By definition, it WILL sell, it the price is right (as defined by the marketplace) and if anyone knows it is for sale. Marketplace for an obsoleted purpose-built boat? Well, the Navy scraps a lot of those, too.

Such a shame, it is a pretty boat.

I was shown an aluminum 36 some years ago, also semi-custom, almost flush decked, tiny "pit" of a cockpit. All it needed was to tear off the entire deck, rebuild it with a conventional cabin and cockpit and...Right, a total killer.

I wonder if there's a boating equivalent of Jay Leno's garage, a place where obsoleted boats can hang out and be admired?

Along the same lines, there are many old IOR raceboats that are no longer competitive as racers nor easily handled as cruisers, without some extensive modifications, lingering on Yachtworld for fairly low prices, along with some unrealistic seller.

Its not about "that' boat. OK your a Pearson guy P 36's on sailboat lists great lakes to east coast take your pick mid $20000. Point being the boat market is flooded. Pick about any type of boat.

Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

I wish the market was flooded but its not. For those of us seeking high quality boats there is very little to choose from. The market is flooded with cheap unwanted junk though.

Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

I planned for a year and sold in less then a week - yikes. The boat was very clean and very well taken care of. I was serious about selling and the first buyer was serious about buying and had done his homework. We both walked away happy.

It's amazing how many dirty, smelly and poorly maintained boats are out there.

I would say the market is saturated with less than desirable boats and the good ones sell fast. Honestly, the brokers have really been pretty dead on for price of sale and length of time to sell.

There at least 6 36-2's listed as a 36, but any after 85 would be a mark 2.

I have been looking at Pearsons as well! ;-)

Check sailboat lists for 36-2 Pearson's one on there is a one owner always fresh water boat. I think it was $45000 in Chicago.

Check your settings for the search... There is a Pearson 38, and about 6 Pearson 36-2s Criteria should be Pearson 36-38' 1985-1991

I've seen boats that look like the owners just walked off after a weekend partying, sheets on the bunks, food in the refridge rotting, smelly books. Ick.

There is a Cabo Rico 38 just sitting in the slip across us. Its' been for sale for years. Every storm beats her up a little more, the canvas shreds a little more. I almost tried to convince my wife to let me buy it to save her... but then I came to my senses.
