Depends on what you want. Atlanta Craigslist recently had two Catalina
22s with trailers for around $2500.
There are several boats for sale
in our marina for between $4k and $20k. None are advertised. Take a weekend and drive east to Panama
City, visiting as many marinas
along the way as you can. Next weekend drive west to New Orleans
doing the same. Ask around the marinas
and I'm certain you'll eventually find something that meets your needs and budget
. There are plenty of boats out there at bargain prices - just know what you are getting before you plop down cash.
We had an unknown (to me) made 30+ foot boat abandoned at the marina that went up for auction
last weekend. Nobody showed up to bid. Ugliest damn sailboat I've ever seen but had someone shown up with $1.00 they would have taken it.
A 44' CSY
pilothouse needing refitting just sold on ebay for $19,500. I estimated it would have taken another $25k and two full months of work to bring it up to a $100k boat. Not a bad deal if you have both the money
