Are you sure they are 15-16k lbs? And are you sure that the Bruce Roberts
is actualy 30k?
A Island Packet
37' vessel is speced out for 24,000 lb. I'm sure once you include crusing gear
, they're heavier than that.
387 is speced out to weight 19500 lb.
The plans for the Bruce Roberts
Spray 370 on the internet
say they're seped for around a 24k displacement
. Again, I'm sure they're heavier in service
So 30k for a vessel that's 1 foot longer, more or less riged for offshore
, and might already have gear
in it sounds reasonable to me. It still is probably a bit heavy.
There are so many other things that influance how it sails
, I would be inclined to take it for a spin before discounting it.
