Yes, price is right. But I don't think it's seaworthy enough for the trip east to St Maarten. Others will take it out anyway, I know that.

A Catalina will do much MUCH better than the boat in that ad.

cheers,
Nick.

Do you have some insight to this particular model? I don't know the boat at all.

I did find this nice brochure about the boat - http://ustoo.leeward.vi/?p=53

3000 lbs of bilge keel seems reasonable. And this page shows displacement around 12,000 pounds - http://floridaboats.net/archive/glan...ana%20738.html

Yes, I might well take that one, but not the one linked by OP... just check what they did to it:



ciao!
Nick.

Duh... I wasnt smart enough to scroll down to the pictures in the ad. Weird modification although I am mot generrally opposed pilot house mods for long term cruising. In this case, though, the addition looks to make sail handling almost impossible.

Re: Any Input Is Appreciated

Thanks again everyone. I will let you know how it looks after I see it. I have decided that one key thing for me will be living space and this boat has a lot. I am not crazy about the enclosed cockpit but maybe it is not as bad as it looks. I will keep looking, thanks

Re: Any Input Is Appreciated

Hey Cruisers,
I wasn’t able to see the boat I was trying to today because the seller wasn’t available. But this may have been good since I came across a 56 ft ketch made of ferro cement in my price range. I love the size and am starting to look into it more. Thanks for all the help. I will keep you posted on what I find out.

Re: Any Input Is Appreciated

Search the discussions here about ferro-cement. It is not an inherently bad method of boat construction, but a lot of the examples out there were poorly built by people who really didn't know what they were doing and cut corners they shouldn't have. The bottom line is that you need to be very careful, educate yourself about what to look for, and do an EXTREMELY thorough inspection, before you sink your money into a ferro-cement boat.

Good luck.

Thanks, I posted some questions on those thread and will defiantly get any boat I am seriously thinking of buying surveyed before I plop down the cash.

Re: Any Input Is Appreciated

The Glander is fairly narrow at 10', has a shallow keel (3') and only 25% ballast on a displacement of 12,000 dry - before the pilothouse was added. I'd love to see a stability test on that Glander.

Re: Any Input Is Appreciated

Any 56' ferro-cement boat in your price range is worth the asking or less. Put 40k or 50k into it and you will have a boat with a market value of less than 30k I would bet.
