Somebody is gonna get a sweet boat for little money!
 
Saw this on ebay. Since I bought my sweet CSY Walkthrough on ebay from these same people at a no reserve auction, I thought I'd throw this info out there and let some one else find their dream boat:
#9526 1984 47' Vagabond 47 Ketch Sailboat in Sailboats | eBay Motors
Good luck!

I hope who ever buys it realizes there is a lot of work to do to it! Is that a Sandy damaged boat?

That is one heck of a boat. Personally, that is just too much equipment to maintain IMHO, but good luck to the winning bidder. Damage doesn't look all that bad.

Lots of new gear. Looks like she was well cared for before the salvors beat her up.

Makes you wonder what happened to the owners after they were evaced off the boat. It's a real shame... :(

Looked at the parent site. Lots of Sandy boats. Looks like we found out who's selling them.

"89.7% Positive feedback"

In the immortal words of Monty Python, "RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!"

Sorry, but that feedback rating is really way below par for ebay sellers.

I think that site use to be called BentBoat.com

Really could be, or it could be just part and parcel to the business of selling trashed boats. They don't claim to be selling ready to go boats, but you know the posts we see here all time about people buying boats halfway across the country sight unseen and wonder if they can sail them home 20,000 miles. There description sure did not really match the amount of damage to the boat, and to say it was insured for 300,000 is very misleading. Check yacht world and they start at less then $50,000 granted this one had a lot of new gear, it seemed not not really be that clean in the bilges. I don't think it would be offered at over 150,000 prior to the accdent. Nada average is $67,600, though I am sure that includes some projects. But if it stays below 50,000 they will be getting a good deal.

The best quote was:

Quote:

The fiberglass hull is in good condition except for small hole noted below.
I think a hole excludes it from being in good condition. But at least the front did not fall off.

Quote:

a small delamination where the recovery vessel lightly touched the Vagabond while salvors were boarding.
Does not look like slight damage, and is not going to just buff out.

As you say if the condition is as described it could be a steal for somebody if goes for somewhere near the starting bid.
