Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

Well, and all this said, the 9.2c is gone. Was a beautiful boat, would've been absolutely perfect for myself and my cats, and the location was far beyond ideal for me, but alas... My GF and her two horrible cats need space as well. I've been trying to convince her to get her own boat. She's tiny and the S2 8.0c would be perfect for her, and moorage on two slips in the club would still be trivial. She's not as excited about the proposition of two boats as I am, so I'm looking for something ... unfortunately larger.

Sure, but I'd still be interested in paying close to asking price IF it came with a slip at that marina. I'd love to live there, but I'm not willing to quit working in Vancouver, or move up to Squamish for however many months I'd have to be there to be considered for membership.
I've talked with Ben(the OP) about a few boats as he's been looking at.

26k asking is not a big deal when the per year difference on moorage could be 6000$...

Likewise boats for sale in Spruce. They often sell at asking since slips there are so coveted.

I think they're just super anal about what they think it's worth. I can understand if you've put money into something and hope to get it back, but as with most things, it's not reality. The ads here are filled with boats with survey prices that are way higher than the price they're up for sale for, hell a lot of them are asking for less than half their survey price.

These people just seem to have an unrealistic view of what the market is. Though you'd think after 2 years or more of trying to sell, they'd start to wonder why it doesn't sell.

Yup, they are dead set on the price. If it came with the slip it's in, it'd be well worth it, but the marina there has a rule about Vancouverites... They don't want an infestation. So you have to live in Squamish for x amount of time before you can get a slip.

Ask them for a copy of the survey.

Somewhat old thread but I found this thread because I was looking up that exact boat actually. It's for sale again, seems to me it's the same owners, so they've been trying to sell it for 1-2 or more years?

I contacted them and asked about their price flexibility, since if the boat isn't selling it either has problems (which it doesn't seem to) or it's not priced properly for the market. they said "we've had it surveyed and our price is dead on".

I can see why they haven't managed to sell the boat in several years of trying...

Yea, finding moorage isn't all that difficult. Most of the Marina's still haven't discovered the Internet (which would make it much easier), but those who have all seem to have a few slips open. There's lots up the Fraser, always a couple in False Creek. All the liveaboard is up the creek which kinda sucks. I'd rather be in the middle of squamish than the Edge of Vancouver.

That sure is a nice boat. I can't speak to the price vs. the condition, but if it's a fair deal, I'd go for it.

It really looks comfortable, well equipped and well maintained. It is aesthetically pleasing, someone else in the thread says it even sails well. Living aboard such a boat would be a real adventure.

Re: S2 9.2c - for liveaboard - thoughts?

We used to charter one of these for the weekend a few years back before owning our own.
It was a fun boat to sail and comfortable with the aft berth.
One thing I remember well is that the holding tank was not much bigger than a dixie cup.
I don't know how much volume it actually holds but it was not all.
