The problem with many of the repo and confiscation auctions is that you don't have any warranty and must generally accept the boat AS IS. This means you don't get a chance to survey the boat, and don't have any real idea of what condition it is in. Many of these boats go for very little money, but are not really a bargain, since you could often have bought a decent boat for what it will cost you to rehab the auction purchase.

And I've been present when many harbors TRY to auction off confiscated and abandoned vessels. Saw one where there were no bids on any of the dozen larger boats, and the high seller for the day was a ten foot sailboat "hull" that went for $28 after a bidding war.

E-bay is where boats that can't be sold anywhere else go.

what about repo sailboats?
Is there a place were they get auctioned?
What happens to those boats. I imagine that with this economy many would be defaulting on loans just as it happens with real estate.
Are there auctions arround the country selling this boats? or what happens to them?

But wouldn't virtually all of these boats end up on one of the web sites anyway? Seems to me its almost (repeat almost) unnecessary to go snooping around for boats when so many are right there on the net.

Divorce lawyer's offices are also places where dreams are lost . . . and boats are bartered.

Florida has a lot of hurricane boats at the moment as well. Still a lot of boats that were salvaged from Katrina, Rita, etc that are showing up on the market.
