Re: Beneteau Oceanis 390
can take a long time to sell a boat in SoCal most sit for sale for over a year. the cost of the boat is only a portion of the expense. with pictures it is hard to tell the current condition of the boat. lightly sailed is sometimes a way to say run down and not used much. you do not know the age of the pictures.
One of the reasons they are hard to sell is that there are not enough places to keep them. the larger the boat the harder it is to find a spot. the boat you linked is at the yacht club and those are the most sought after and is not going to come with the boat
So while you are talking to the dealers about a boat also ask about available slips to keep it in. most marinas have a wait list of 1 to 5 years for a 40 foot boat. In San Diego you may have a better chance of finding a slip sooner then most other places in So Cal. I know several people that have waited to buy until they had found a slip and rented it while they went looking for a boat to put in it.
