Outrageously Good Deal of the Day, Week, Year....

There is often someone coming on SailNet asking what kind of boat should they buy to sail around the world with their family once they learn to sail. And my default answer is learn to sail first on a small boat, but then if nothing else grabs you buy a Peterson 44 or 46 but one with glass decks, aluminum spars, and new water tanks. I have been tracking the prices on the 44's for several decades now as this question comes up over and over again. These are normally around $100-125K boats that need something like another $30K to go serious cruising.

So here is the deal of the year (assuming there is nothing else more serious than mentioned in the listing) especially if you are a skilled diesel mechanic.

Good negotiating and send me a card from Bora-Bora,
Jeff

Re: Outrageously Good Deal of the Day, Week, Year....

Ok what's the catch????

We have been following KP 44/46's for a while, for us they tick way too many boxes for a good(value) boat for long term, long distance cruising.

There is a 44 here in Sydney for 130-140k, and I know most of the ones on the US are similar prices.

Now hang on a second.......this all seems very similar...

This morning I saw this listing for a 1981 Kelly Peterson 46.

While I have not seen the boat, and have no idea what shape she is really in, and based on a specific person's tastes and objectives, they might find her choice of gear as debatable, I thought I would post this link below to her listing in case there is someone thinking to themselves "What would the perfect $100K circumnavigator look like?" (or more precisely what does Jeff_H think is the near perfect $100K circumnavigator look like?) (and for the record I almost never refer to myself in the third person but I could not think of another way to say that and, no, I have no connection to this boat or seller)

Could it be that a certain spinnaker hugging, performance-orientated, speed loving Mod has been spending an unnatural amount of time on Yachtworld searching heavy-medium displacement, centre cockpit family circumnavigators??

What is going on???? Say it's not so Jeff.
Don't go getting ideas, if you go off cruising as well, then who will be here to look after all of us??

That is a ton(s) of boat for the money. I just hope whoever ends up with it realizes the cost associated with fitting out and maintaining a boat of that size. It is certainly a great time to be a buyer.

Re: Outrageously Good Deal of the Day, Week, Year....

It might sell faster at 50-60k. I tried to sell a car for 3 weeks at $300.00 and had no interest. I raised the price to $800.00 and sold it for $500.00 the same day. It was a Vega.
