Correct call! She is a1982 Vagabond Voyager named Gracious Living III. She is listed on YachtWorld. You can use "1982 47ft Bluewater Sailboat For Sale" as I did to conduct a Google search.

Well, seems legit.
Yachworld
&
Denison Brokers

..Note how everywhere else the "incredible deal" has somehow mysteriously acquired an additional $100,000 USD in price, AND somehow "lost" the incredible bargain part.

lol

Re: ADVICE? Repo -12.4k USD for a 47' Blue Water Ketch?

I don't know anything about click bait and other internet scams, but do know a bit about refitting old sailboats. If the hull deck and masts are sound (professional surveyor only, and be cautious about any cored structure), expect to replace every other component in the vessel, yes, engines, gensets, pumps, hoses. cables. etc. If you are willing and able to do all of this yourself and have access to a yard willing to allows a big DIY project, figure on a multi year undertaking that will take over your life and your wife. If you're thinking of paying a yard to do a complete refit, buy a new boat- it will be less expensive and you won't have to spend time in a lunatic asylum or bankruptcy court.


Good luck
