Anyone Know What Yacht 'this' Is ?

Hi All,

First post... hope you can help... have been lurking a while...

Just spotted this today... and the tinkerer in me sees "potential"...

Hull is a mini ecosystem of marine life... but then, that's a bargaining tool











Any hints most appreciated. Cheers

I thought it was an Ericson also. If that is what it is, it is a great boat. Kind of an ugly paint job, but with a little TLC and some money, it would be a nice boat. Probably has a Universal diesel.

Welcome aboard.
There can be treasure in rough diamonds.
At least all the stainless steel looks straight enough, so maybe it's just been neglected, not knocked about.

Re: Anyone Know What Yacht 'this' Is ?

It's not necessarily a bargain or great boat until you have had it hauled and gone over by a surveyor and received a price. The growth is going to have to be removed so you can test sail it and the owner should pay for that.

Make a totally low ball offer like 25k and see what happens. In this market you might get it. I would not touch it though if it needs lots of work...not in this market where you can get boats in good shape for cheap.

An Ericson 38-200

That hatch pattern is unmistakable.

Superior boat.

Awesome...

Thanks so much for all the replies! Don't think I've ever had such a great welcome to a fourm before!


Chanced upon her yesterday... It has been neglected...

Am going to make some enquiries. Am out in Singapore, so that works in my favour (its always a buyers market here)....

But agreed on being sure about just how much of a project this is going to be before getting my feet wet.

Cheers All

James
