outthere09 Hey Xort...thanks for that.

I've pretty much decided on a Westsail 32 and the prices are all over the place...from $40K to $75K. I know that 1/2 aren't 'factory finished' so that is a big factor. I have done soooooo much reading over the past week...no sleeping or eating! I'm on a mission! Today I'm going to look at a Westerly Falcon 34 that is local...so your info really helps, though think I'm pretty set on the Westsail.

Also, did order some books from Amazon which I think you recommended. Will keep you posted! thanks again

hard to say, especially now.
You need to look hard into what the boat is worth, then determine if the buyer is close to that.
One particular model I was shopping ranged from $140,000 to 260,000 all within a few years of construction.

You might find a gem priced at the top of the range that is a bargain and a beater very low priced that isn't worth half that.

Some sellers aren't really all that eager to sell and are holding out for top dollar, others need to sell now.
Do your homework; determine what the boat is worth; do your own pre-survey to determine if it seems in good condition; then make an offer 20% below what you think it's worth, regardless of what it's listed for.
Of course you will follow up with a very good surveyor to verify you didn't miss anything in your own survey.
