I also do not understand why these vessels cannot be cleaned and cleared of all unnecessary items. Basically a day of putting away dishes, clothes, misc. boat parts, tidy sole, clean sink, tidy head, or anything else you would do if selling a land based home?

In the SBO site they had the similar query on why owners do not put a little effort to make the best salability and therefore get the best price on the sale.

I posted this well produced ad of a sold Hunter 28 which by the way sold basically for the full amount the owner requested and I guess you'll know why when you see how immaculate it is both outside and inside.

When I sold my Ericson I spent 2 days cleaning and moving stuff off the boat . Then I hired my buddys kid who was taking classes in photography. She sold in 5 days for the asking price. I paid the kid $40 for the pics and she typed the ad.
She'll have her broker's license in five years.... :D

It sold me. The only changes I can think of that would have made the ad even more compelling have nothing to do with the preparation of the boat, even. Model numbers for electronics and information about the displayed stuff would have been nice, on screen (to the side) and narrated. I can see "two burner" part of the cooker, but alcohol, propane, diesel? Compressor (12v, 120v, both?) or absorption cooler? That kind of information.

Has the family owned a boat before? Every major used purchase I've ever made, such as a boat, has required a couple of years of maintenance, systems replacements, etc, just until it calmed down to ordinary ongoing system failures. :) When you get into the size vessel you're considering, these moments arrive at a few grand a piece, it seems. Just be sure your plans/budget assume this. All the best with your adventure.

We never had a boat before that's why we are in this modest budget, we are saving more 10k to to keep things going, to replacements and any problem for the first months.

Yea, sometimes when I am board I look at "little yacht sales" videos, some nice tours of a variety of boats! They really do a nice job of staging videos, showing the unique features of the boats. I think he is using much better than a go pro, it does not have that distorted view of the go pro. They are great for action shots, but for detail no way.

Just be very careful with your purchase. Both the sails and the standing rigging could each eat up your entire reserve on a 40+ft boat. They are both wear items that will need to be replaced at some point. Be sure you know how old they are and how long you might have left. Although, longevity is never guaranteed.

miatapaul, the GoPro provides incredible detail because of the Ultra-Wide Angle lens. You can get very close and not be out of focus, thus providing excellent detail. That same lens will distort along the edges, because of the wide angle it provides, but inside a boat, where nearly everything is curved to conform to the hull, it really doesn't make a difference. I'll post some vids of my boat with the GoPro after I get things cleaned up and the boat is back in the water next month.

All the best,

Gary :cool:

Google translator is noted to be imperfect, but pretty cool, nonetheless......
