Update.... I got here to look at the boat and she needs a lot more work than the price supports, so I have made a reduced offer to reflect the months of work required.
So, it is up to the seller to accept, or not.

eherlihy will become famous soon enough
Then it is time for a new thread in which you describe the issues, and vet ideas on how to best address them..

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased

You mean, the granite countertops are badly in need of resealing? (VBG)

Is it just me, or has no one ever posted a thread "I saw the boat and it is exactly as described! And they forgot to mention, the galley knives are all Sabatier and plates real bone china!"

No really...there must be a law about "Whoever writes a boat-for-sale ad must be wearing beer googles at all times while writing it." Looking forward to hearing the rest.

Having shopped for kids' cars recently I've come to the conclusion that while many people are knowingly lying about the condition of their cars, in a lot of cases I think they just don't realize how bad it is. Especially if you've had a car for a long time, the deterioration is gradual and people just don't notice how bad it's gotten as much as someone who gets into that same car for the first time. I imagine it's the same way with boats. Hell, I would say it even applies to spouses, although hopefully you're not trying to sell them.

Cars might actually be worse. Over the past years I've seen several Nooze Specials where they claim to have documented 90%, that's NINETY %, or more, of the used car ads as being simply shams or frauds. Often by someone who says "It was my ---'s car and I'm selling it for them" when the guy is really an unlicensed use car dealer who knows how much is wrong with it. Unlicensed often because it was taken away from them after too many complaints.

No, it couldn't be worse than the used car market, where a straight sale from a seller who isn't lying is a documented rarity.

Selling wives? How would you sell a wife? Even Henny Youngman couldn't GIVE his away. (VBG)

Well, forget the Amel, now we're focused on Mikelson 51 or 56 ketches:

SKOL - a Mikelson 50' Pilothouse Ketch FOR SALE

BEAUTIFUL BOAT, I was on today!

By the way, my concept on this thread is that it has evolved into the birth of a new "Triumph", in a way a memorial and also an impending "birth watch".

So, belay the request for Amel 51s which are available, and replace with a request for links to any Mikelson 51s or 56s with the 3 cabin configuration, and ideally, the "in boom furler" rig.

Thank you!

Oh, I am in Guatemala, looking at Skol SKOL - a Mikelson 50' Pilothouse Ketch FOR SALE but she (sadly) only has the 2 cabin design.

Does anyone know how good or bad they sail?
