Re: 43 foot Bruce Roberts

I don't see a price listed. Would you take 5K for her?

Re: 43 foot Bruce Roberts

Why is there ALWAYS someone who feels they must make a demeaning offer that does not fit the item under discussion. (why would anyone invest $100K in a refit and then turn around and sell their boat for $5K, presumably Hopkins could remove the new Peugeot diesel and sell it for well more than that)

Probably an armchair sailer who has a $5000 credit limit on his card.

Re: 43 foot Bruce Roberts

Not to disagree but many responses on other threads tell people to lowball the asking price

Yap which is exactly what has been proposed in other threads. Personally this looks like a good deal based on the information provided
