Re: Wanted - 40'(approx) Blue-water live-aboard

Are you guys the Canadian owners of the 42' Malo in Granada? If so could you please email me andresv94@yahoo.com

I think we might be able to make a deal if we can come to a price agreement where we are both happy

These boats have sailed the South Pacific for decades and are extremely comfortable and safe. This boat is a well found example. You can reach the owner at gf4rff@gmail.com.

Re: Wanted - 40'(approx) Blue-water live-aboard

Hi folks ...As the OP of this thread I have been remiss bringing you up to date.
Last time I posted I mentioned being outbidded on an Amel Maramu located in Malaysia. Well, as good fortune would have it my partner and I are currently getting her ready to head up the west coast of Malaysia and on to Thailand. Very excited!!
To assist other purchasers like I thought I'd pass on a couple of comments about my experiences:
1. When buying a boat if possible spend time to first get to know the owner - that will tell you more about the condition and past maintenance of a vessel than any survey will.
2. Keep your search focussed on vessels that suit your intended needs - price (although important) shouldn't be reason to make compromises you will regret later.
3. Look for a vessel with good 'bones'.
4. Whether you buy a boat that is 'cruise-ready or not, be prepared to spend money on your purchase.
5. Despite some comments in this thread about having low purchase price expectations, YOUR boat is out there. Do proper research, be prepared to travel, and have cash in hand.

Thank you to those who offered their comments and suggestions and best wishes to those in the process searching for their 'perfect' vessel.

You seem to have missed something in the story...if you were outbid, how is it that you are sailing it? Are you volunteer crew for the new owner?

Sorry for the omission hamburking ... the overbidder withdrew before completing the purchase and I became the proud owner of Pegasus. Sometimes patience brings it's own rewards.

Re: Wanted - 40'(approx) Blue-water live-aboard

We have a 1978 Hallberg Rassy 41 Center Cockpit Ketch that is overly equipped for offshore voyaging. We are retiring from cruising life after 24 years. Vessel was hauled Feb 1st for new bottom paint. She's a great boat. Located in Jacksonville, FL. Price is $60,000. Photos and additional info can be found here: 1978 Hallberg-Rassy HR 41, Jacksonville Florida - boats.com


Have a blessed day.

If I were in the market for a boat at your price point this HR would be high on the list. Cheers.

Re: Wanted - 40'(approx) Blue-water live-aboard

The wife of a friend of mine is selling his Tartan 41 because his health has failed him at too young an age.
My wife and I have both sailed on this boat several times in the Bahamas and Florida coast. She's well founded and well equipped and currently located on the St Lawrence river in upstate New York.

My friend treated this boat with fastidious attention. I believe the broker has priced her fairly

Details of the listing are here:->http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2001...s#.WnkGpVRKtac
