Well, the price just dropped from 10.5k to 8.5k Problem is it is berthed at the Keehi Marina on Sand Island Oahu. Kind of a nasty area. Druggies moored off shore, druggies breaking into your car in the parking lot.

Is it really that much of an "oddball" boat?

I have never seen another like it. Most buyers stick to the norm, like a Catalina 30 for example. Aft cockpit, conventional layout.
That doesn't mean it is a bad boat, the design and underwater profile look good. Group Finot are good designers. But few are looking to stray from a conventional type of boat. It does look better at $8500. I wouldn't count on its limited production run to keep the price up for resale though. They built few because the buyers didn't fall in love with it. They're still not in love with it. But at 8500 I don't think it makes much difference if you like it. Just don't count on a crowd after the rare design when you do decide to sell.

Yeah, I hear you. My wife would kill me if I bought it anyway.

OTOH, a CAL 20 is now for sale on the North Shore for 1500. No trailer or motor. Totally different boat. Day/weekend sailor. Probably needs a lot of work. I haven't heard anything bad about the CAL 20. Good support available. Still, where do I put the dang thing? Live in a town home with small parking stalls, and I don't want to pay 300 a month to berth a 20 foot boat in a state run marina run by pencil-neck geeks. Maybe bribe someone to let me trailer it in their driveway.

Still my wife to deal with. She's from Singapore, only 5'1" but scary when she gets mad! Would be so much fun for my two boys (5 and 10).

The problem with Hawaii is that you're stuck with what's available here given the high shipping costs. Always Catalina 30's available. CAL 20's don't come available very often.

Cal 20's are good boats and it would be less expensive to own as well.
