Looks more like damage to me, that pulpit is a bit deranged when viewed from astern in the 2nd pic... waiting for the new owner to make the repair, would be my guess... They should just cut that section off, and declare the boat 'turn-key' for the Baltic, or the Med :-)

Hey, it's got a brand new chartplotter, and a flat screen tv, what else does anyone need? :-)

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

That $79,500 is what they pay you to haul it off & dispose of it, right? [Which is the 'sarcasm' smiley?]

They will tell you anything to get you to look.. Offer them 30k and by the time you're done you'll have your 80k boat....Lots of "deferred" maintenance....

The broker had a 3 hour round trip from Annapolis, as did we. Plus he had to pay for the launch to take us out to the boat and back. He lost about 5 hours time, plus gas and launch fee. We stopped at Fisherman's Inn on Kent Island on the way back and had a couple of Rum Runners on the dock. I think we fared better then he did.

Well, that may be a bit high but we did mention we'd like to talk to the owner. The broker replied with an emphatic "No" but did say if we put in an offer and it was accepted then he might let us talk to the owner.

Lemme think about it...

One other thing, the wheel lock was shot - totally useless. Imagine the rudder flop in the storm.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

That's very nice but what about the pictures for the boat you liked but was sold?

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

No sympathy for the broker, his job is to head off false starts like this so that YOU dont waste your time, wasting his is his problem.

Was this a one time showing with this broker, or are you working with him on your boat search? If you are working with him, you should expect him to get his act together so when you see a boat, its condition has been accurately communicated to you in advance. When there is doubt, he should see the boat for you, then advise you as to whether he recommends a visit.

Service like that is the reason that working through a broker (such not to be confused with the mythical "buyer's broker") can make a lot of sense, unless of course you enjoy the thrills and chills of the hunt.

Certified...in several regards...

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

With so many boats on the market offered by their owners, what is the advantage of using a broker? I think having detailed pictures saves one from this type of surprises and wasting time on unproductive trips to see a boat that has been misrepresented by the seller.

Re: An Excellent Condition, Turnkey Boat

A good broker, and we had one, can steer you away from the dud boats. Ours also dealt with getting the proper paperwork together so we only had to sign and sail away when the time came. And once we found a surveyor (also very good), he coordinated the survey and sea trial so we did it all in one afternoon.

He also treated us to drinks at his club and bought us matching hats with our boat's name on it. Yeah, he was counting on us returning to him when we moved to a larger boat (which we're now in the process of doing).

We weren't buying a high end boat but for first time "big" boat buyers, our broker stopped us from making stupid and costly mistakes.

Forgive me. I mistakenly added an "n" to the word turkey. I hate it when I do that!! :-)
