Bargain boats at auction

1749 Views 6 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  BoatRod
We are currently at Spicer's Marina in Noank, CT and they had an auction this morning to get rid of abandoned boats. A Pearson 26 sold for $500 and a Dufour 30 went for $100!!. These boats were tired but certainly did not look beyond the possiblity - especially when you start out with purchase prices like these. I think there are a very large number of these boats out there and there will be some serious bargains to be had and not a few dumpsters to be filled when these relatively inexpensive boats are cut up when no buyer can be found.

I traded a engine for my 1975 Chrysler C-22 and have less then $500 in it.

I have been sailing it as much as possible and Its very safe , looks good and has been a joy for the family. I'm sure theres a lot of great deals on forgotten boats.. I'm keeping an eye on a few at the local marina's.
