Absolutely no mention of condition in the description, a sometimes telling omission. Regardless, I know you are asking for opinions on value but without seeing it and thoroughly inspecting it, all boats start out at $0.

The pictures look nice, but who knows? They could have been taken 10 years ago. Even in really good shape, I doubt that I'd pay $279k. Still, it all depends on condition. Guessing at what it is worth, without seeing it and judging its condition, is a pretty worthless exercise.

there is a 45 for sale here in mazatlan for 245000usd, asking price. i think ye should be able to purchase a 38 for around 150,000usd. unless the price is in pesos, i wouldnt go for a 38 for that much.

Re: Where Have I Been? Cabo Rico: $279,000 !?

Wife says - "You put that goddam sailboat on the market NOW"

Husband says "I did, I did. Look at the ad - Its been for sale for 6 months but the economy is so bad nobody will buy it"

Not everyone REALLY wants to sell their sailboat. But I know that I would be happy to sell MINE for 279k. Or 179k. Probably would have to think about it at 79k.

Re: Where Have I Been ? Cabo Rico: $279,000 !?

Didn't we discuss this boat once before? Anyway, even if it was in absolutely pristine condition, I wouldn't pay that much for that boat. So, yeah, I think this is probably a case of someone who doesn't really want to sell their boat, but for some reason feels the need to have it on the market.
