Help identifying a used boat

Hello everyone.

I'm considering buying a used day sailer and I have been searching in various ads.

Since it's not a common boat type in my country, most of the boats offered are imported from various countries. I have found this boat which I will be visiting shortly to check it's condition. I would like to have some info on what to expect like age, weight, etc.

I tried searching on the web but I couldn't find anything besides this one which seems to be of the same type:

For Sale: 580X210, Boizenburg, Germany | Boatshop24.com

Does this boat seem familiar to you?






Thanks.

Here's another.

Deutsche Werft 580X210 Segelboot (47967), Jahrgang 1988, EUR 2.800,- (Gebrauchtboot, Segelyacht)

That yard made U-boats in WWII, which is quite cool.

Seems to be the same boat as the one found on the BoatShop24.
Still, I couldn't find anything concerning this boat.

Re: Help identifying a used boat

Although they are very similar, I don't think they are the same boat. Look at the windows, completely different. Look at the turn of the hull well aft, the boat you are looking at seems finer, less bulky.
Also, $3,500 seems a big price for such a small used boat.

Re: Help identifying a used boat

ccriders you are right about the differences. The boat advertised on the boatshop24 looked like it had a few modifications from the previous owner. Also, what is the 'turn of the hull' ?

I'm going to have a closer look at that boat next week. I hope I can get same hints about the brand/model.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Help identifying a used boat

I'm guessing by "turn of the hull well aft", the writer meant the curvature of the hull near the stern makes it narrower and higher off the waterline compared to another boat with a "fatter" stern shape.

Yes, that is what I meant. Thanks.

Re: Help identifying a used boat

I went to checked the sailing boat today. Most of the parts on the board look similar to the the boat on the German ad site.

Unfortunately the only papers I could get where the temporary license number plate registration (red plates) used in Germany and the certification of the trailer which was bought on July the 30th 1982.

So, the boat type it's still a mystery to me. I would like to consider buying this boat, but would buying an unknown boat be a good move?
