Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Started looking in January as I saved up money. When I got to the point where I could look serioiusly to make a purchase happen nothing in that "cheap" range was available. Just as I was telling myself to be more patient that it could take a while, this Cabot 36 showed up for $10k at the first of June. Motored it across town and it's getting set up to move onto in Sept. There is a lot of work, mostly cosmetic and to get all the systems set up the way I want but the "core" of the boat is good. I've done some minor work on the cosmetics (cleaned up the teak, hooked up a BBQ, scrubbed things down) and cleaned up the insides. Getting ready to map out and rework the 12v system next.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Awesome thread! I found this article online that is quite helpful:

Mahina Expeditions - Selecting A Boat for Offshore Cruising

My dream affordable cruising live aboard boat would be under 40' with ability to single hand sail easily and have decent autopilot/windvane, low time diesel engine in good shape, no blisters or hull damage, fiberglass hull, 1-2 berths for sleeping, decent galley with stove/oven, and self tacking, roller furl jib/main.

Of course if I had serious cash for a used boat, something lux like an Oyster or Hallberg-Rassy would be sweet.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Nice finds!

That Skookum sure is a LOT of boat. I wonder what the story is on it.

Thanks to everyone for adding to the thread.

I have been seeing some more boats to add too, and will do so in the future too.

Great finds Don. Both have sea worthy reputations. For an old 32' the Vanguard has some nice headroom. 6'4" if my research is correct.

I think you'll find that most of the older folks will say the Vanguard is one of the nicer all-around cruising boats..... not the fastest, not the roomiest... but cruisers all recognize it in any port... now I wonder why that is?

Wow quite a find and in my backyard too even! I do prefer a diesel engine but would consider gas.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

This is something I've never saw before from Beneteau. Looks like a fair amount of room to stretch out. I'd be curious as to what method was used in those years for keel structure.
