Sorry for your loss..it is never easy.
without pics or an inspection... I'm leaning toward this suggestion also....

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

Take the $20k, do not look back...and run. It's one less thing to deal with during a difficult situation. You don't have the time to make this project worth more.

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

So, here are some pictures. I thought I posted earlier saying thanks to all of you for your replies. However, when I checked back later I didn't see my post. So, at the risk of being redundent. Thank you all so much. You are a gold mine of good advice and good people by all appearances. Very grateful.

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

deec,

Allow me to turn 2 of your pictures upright.

And I agree with Mark1977, if you "cruise" this forum much, it could change your future and you will find yourself on the hook down in the British Virgin Islands, soaking up some sun and warmth this winter. Or the Sea of Cortez.

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

Thank you for turning my pics. Ran out of time, energy, and patience. Running too fast in too many directions. Did I hear someone say something about The British Virgin Islands? Got her, or should I say him since the name is Maverick, cleaned out today. What a mess. I could have spors growing on my back side there is so much mold. YUK! Having it surveyed tomorrow rather informally so it won't cost an arm and a leg. I am using your referral Skip and I did say hey for you. I also talked to your mover but he is a ways away and was more expensive. The mover I would use is the one that put it here to begin with so he knows what he's up against. Experience is a good thing. Tight squeeze here. He agreed to do it for $1,100.00. Of coarse I hope that I get a buyer fast and leave that to them. But, I have done a bit of homework for them. I will hopfully have it listed in a couple of classifieds tomorrow. I am feeling like a lot is getting done but it all still feels like treading water. Those British Isles are sounding really good. I'll keep ya posted.
Dee

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

From what I have seen in the pics and that it only took a day to clean up below, so couldn't be that bad, I reckon $20k is a steal and IMHO you would be mad to go that way.
Wish it was here in Oz.

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

I can see why the broker wanted to steal the boat for 20k. From the pics, it appears to be a deck stepped ketch that is designed to lay down on deck. Worth its weight in gold in Europe. Don't be too quick to dump this boat. Get some good photos of the interior and start spreading the word. The price can be raised after you get a good understanding of the boat.

Glad to hear the details are coming together. One very important thing to check before hauling the boat back to the water. Make sure all the seacocks are working and can close. A seacock is a valve to turn water on and off. A boat will have a number of holes in the bottom called through hulls for things like feeding water to cool the engine, drain the sink, flushing the head (toilet), etc. Each one of these through hulls goes to a seacock on the inside of the boat, often found under the floor boards or inside the engine room. If any of the hoses coming from the through hulls to the sink, engine, etc leaks then it will sink the boat.

Since this boat has been sitting for some time it is possible the hoses could be old and also that the seacocks corroded so they won't open and close. This is something that the surveyor will check but make sure you look at this closely with him and make sure you get all these sorted out yourself.

Before putting the boat in the water I would make sure that they are all closed, just in case. If you try to run the engine don't forget to open the one that sends cooling water to the engine water pump.

Good luck.

Skip

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

Nice to see a couple of optimists turn up that's what you'll need

After seeing the photos of the deck (was it Teak? or is it some sort of Fungus? ) simply as an indication of the lack of TLC given over many years (a boat don't get like that within only a couple of years) then I would atill say $20k a decent price...........personally I would be offering only a couple (actually I wouldn't buy her - as well beyond my time / skillset / inclination........as well as being on the wrong continent!)

The good news is that if fixed up she will be a good looking boat and if (as I suspect) she was well designed and built a buyer won't be trying (and failing) to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse (it happens ).

Bad news is that will be at least a 2 year project to complete in someone's life, maybe even 5 .....or never The bad news for you being that restricts the potential market.....

Getting a Surveyor to give her a quick once over is a good move. Depending on what he says I would then be tempted to go for a full on survey simply as a marketing tool, possibly including measuring hull thickness - with a drill I don't know what paperwork you have on her past, but if you can find out a bit more about the model / builder and especially some photos of a good one would be useful to get a buyer's juices going

On the practical front I would also make sure she is wind and watertight, even if that means making some rough and ready hatches out of plywood (not MDF ) with a coat or 2 of household paint. and before going back in the water making sure the bilge pump works, and if not on shoreside electric then a small solar panel (to keep battery topped) would be no bad thing........unless she will be insured

Re: Please Help Me Determine Value of Kompier Yacht

I'm sorry for your loss, Dee, and if you've answered this already, I missed it. But are you required to remove the boat from where it is now for some reason? Are you trying to sell the house? Was it a rental and the owner is requiring the removal of the Kompier?

If there's no compelling reason to move the boat off the property, I'd leave it where it is and let the buyer deal with the hassle of moving it wherever it needs to go.

Skip makes a really important observation about seeing to the condition of the seacocks. They're probably not in a completely functional state, and if the vessel goes in the water and sinks, you'll have an even bigger (expensive) problem on your hands.
