Its been relisted and apparently it is a Custom Golden Gate 30 http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?CLASS_ID=4785

Longer and heavier than the Golden Gate it seems.

15k for an Alpa 12.70. That's a 42 S&S. In Italy. Pretty amazing deal for someone who wants a viable project.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Hm, this baby looks nice. Pretty cheap (8.000€) for a 31', though they could have cleaned a bit inside. It obviously belonged to a fisherman. I was considering posting in 'worst for sale pictures'. But other than that, seems to be a good ship. It has Spanish seaworthiness certificate valid 'til 2020. And it's just 60 miles from where I live... Really tempting, though I wouldn't cross the Atlantic.

If I had 30K... I'd get a good look at:

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

This thread was accepted as a challenge!!!

We bought a Yankee 38 in the water with an excellent slip in fresh water in the Seattle area for $5000.
The engine was replaced 50 hours ago but the boat was unused for 5 years.
It requires tons of cleanup, paint and refurbishing but the hull and mast are sound.
Our estimate is that it will take $20,000 more to finish the project with new sails and electronics😃.
We are under $30k but expect 10 years of fun

Wow! I am not sure if I love hearing about great deals, or hate it!

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

This is a 38' Sparkman & Stephens that is built out of aluminum. It was an IOR racer but was converted to a cruiser with self steering. Lots of sails, roller furling, and they only want $15,900. The sale just fell through and it is back on market. In the LA. California area.

I know that boat! Well, at least I have walked past her a number of times. I always stopped to look. She's in Wilmington and looks better in the pictures than in person. Sad to see her so obviously neglected for so long... definitely has the fat tub IOR shape of the 70s I fondly remember admiring from afar!

Given Don's report, I'd suggest lookin' for a Catalina 38 (except for the nice wind vane gear on her).
