The price on yachtworld is incorrect. I'm going in at 90, and all the rest are asking 89. They are not as well equipped, and they will show their own flaws when surveyed, I'm sure. The one in Sidney seems more comparable to the one I'm working on, and maybe someone will get it for 85. The broker Paul Shield has an excellent reputation in the west coast cs community, and seems to be a straight shooter (he's one of those rare brokers who doesn't come across like slimy used car salesmen). He tells me the lowest price he has ever sold one for is 76 grand. He does agree that the price has to be adjusted to reflect the survey, or have the vendor take care of the things that are really important like the thru-hull valves.
