Found a 34

I think I have found a 34.

I am told it needs a fair bit of work. The majority appears to be cosmetic in nature.

My question is whether the majority of the parts are custom made for the 34 or simple off the shelf parts. Obviously this will determine how much restoration/repair might cost.

Thanks

The only things I can think of offhand that are custom are the tanks (fuel, water, holding) and some of the deck hardware (cleats, scuppers, etc.). The deck hardware seems unlikely to need replacement. The tanks are very likely to need replacement. In the US the fuel tank is $1000-$1500 (part only) and the tank lids $700 - $1000 for all three (parts only). Both can be easily replaced you if you are at all handy.

Note that you can still order any part you need from the factory.

I'm going to assume you're new to boat buying (as am I).

Who told you? You may want to pay a professional surveyor to tell you where you will need to spend you dollars.

If you search Sailnet you'll see many threads that document that even if the boat is free, it can be a bad deal. Many boats have hidden damage that can be very expensive to repair. (Wet core particularly) An accredited surveyor (SAMS or NAMS) will help you find just what kind of shape the boat is in.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the info.

Not my first boat but it is the first time with a Seacraft.

The boat will be surveyed next week so we will see.

Someone beat you to it, or it was in bad shape?

No, wasn't beaten.

The boat is in poor condition, nothing major IMHO but a lot of cosmetic and new sails etc.

Owner believes it is worth X. I think maybe X minus 35 - 40%. Needless to say, we do not agree.

So, onwards and upwards. Perhaps with time things will improve. (it has been for sale for 9 months I heard)
