Nice boat. Not sure what type of sailing you like, but $22K in this market can get you into an entirely different category of live aboard comfort if you move away from multi-hulls. Not just up front cost, but long term maintenance and dockage/mooring fees.
WHERE?! Everyone seems very polar on the price. $22k according to most people is insanely (suspiciously) cheap while others, like yourself, suggest this should get me something pretty decent.
All I really know at this point is that I have myself and two cats, possibly a girl and two more cats, very little in terms of personal possessions, and about $25k I can use to buy something outright. I can also pull a line of credit if necessary.
Moorage sucks here. Can be had for fairly cheap but liveaboards are generally not welcome, especially with cats.
I know I should be buying the smallest boat I can actually live in, as this translates into less maintenance and easier singlehand.
I haven't found a lot for under $30k in my area. A bunch in the $10k range pop up but they're all extremely sketchy.
The best deal I've found thus far on a boat that seemed to be in safe condition was $12.5 for a Buchan 37. It was just too small and poorly laid out for me.
What would you suggest looking for?
