Re: Cruiser - 30+' - Under $25K - in Florida

Have you checked yachtworld.com? I find 90 sailboats in FL 30' or longer for max $25,000.

Why don't you check out a few of those and then come back with specific questions about specific models?

Hey guys, I really do not want to sound crass..... But, the deals are not here.

As I wait to sell my condo (Lord PLEASE) I regularly scan Yachtworld, Sailboatlistings.com. These sites contain a veritable plethora of boats you could look at. Craig's List down here also has some finds. You may be looking for a lot of goodies for $25K. If you find them on a boat, the vessel may be rough. Lowering the goodies threshhold should yield some nice boats.

Re: Cruiser - 30+' - Under $25K - in Florida

in this market, you will want to leave the idea of brokers and yachtworld alone, as far as finding good boats f or low dollars-- this has been a dead horse beating for many years--

Re: Cruiser 30'+ - Under $25K - in Florida

Hi Newbiesailor. My boat is for sale. I think it fits your criteria perfect. The boat is already where you want to cruise.

Areyto: AREYTO IS FOR SALE!!!

Btw. Do a little research and ask around about the difficulty getting from Florida to the eastern Caribbean. Unless you get really lucky its alot of windward work. Yes, its a plug for my boat, but its true. Let me know what the price would have to be. I'm ready to sell.

Hi Captain K,

Which horses would you be beating to find that nice owner selling his own boat? Thanks again for your kindness and hospitality
