Westsail 32 for sale ultra cheap

I didn't know where to put this but I thought I would put it in the gen discussion because it is a rare find . Mods if you want to delete this or move it please do so , sorry but I wanted for people to see it that might not really be looking , this might get them thinking . Like I said a rare find for someone to start their cruising journey or maybe nightmare . I know nothing of this boat or the owner , but I do know Westsails . Proceed with caution !

I don't trust ads with no pictures. They are like women on dating sites who don't post their picture. Every one of them was a crumpled dump truck...

True enough krisscross but like I said I know Westsails and I know Westsailors some of us are still living in the 70s' and praying to a cosmic muffin , and willing to walk away from the boat because karma ran over their dogma .

Re: Westsail 32 for sale ultra cheap

The engine looks to be a non running MD3. These were great engines but probably going on 40 years old. Hear parts availability is getting to be a problem with these engines and of course there is Volvo's parts pricing. Figure on an engine replacement north of 10 boat units. Probably very easy to be into this 30 boat units if everything else is original. Still not a bad price when done for a boat you've returned to almost new condition.

"TLC," with no actual pictures, is code for "this boat is a piece of crap that I am hoping to unload on some unsuspecting boob, but if I showed you what it really looks like no one would even offer me 1/10th of what I'm asking!"

Re: Westsail 32 for sale ultra cheap

You need a reality check on prices as does the seller of a 42 year old boat with a non running Volvo engine with very limited spares availability.

$8,000 No DEFINITELY NOT NEVER NAH NAH NAH

$800 Probably not NO

The reality is that in SOCAL you will need to find a fair chunk of cash just to get someone to haul it away and cut it up.


So we are looking at some serious negative equity.

Re: Westsail 32 for sale ultra cheap

Couldn't agree more. Westsails aren't exactly loved around SoCal and are hard to sell as it is.
An old, run-down one with a broken motor isn't a bargain around these parts. You are looking at, what, $10k for a repower, and then you are already at $18k, and it probably needs *everything* else. I have seen repowered WS's going for low $20s around here and sitting for a long time.

Is it maybe because they are beamy and heavy and their nickname is "Westsnail"?

Re: Westsail 32 for sale ultra cheap

Mainly because of their reputation as being slow and don't point.
