Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I'm amazed at how cheap some of these boats are compared to Australian prices.

RC: Try checking mainland prices occasionally, they're far more reasonable.

A few hundred will get you a 22'er in Sydney every day of the week.

Thanks. I'm aware there cheaper on the mainland than here. Which is why I purchased mine from SA. But the prices over there in the USA are clearer much cheaper again.

True, sub 26' & pretty cheap on Gtree or the ebuy, once you get to 28 like say a compass/swanson & jacks up quite a bit. Every month or so an older ior or similar around 30-36 will come up for 5-30k. My Carter 33 was in that range with great sail wardrobe, young rig, radios, instruments & a few minor age issues that will only amount to a few k over a year or two to sort with my own(shipwright) labour- fairly simple stuff & plenty of help on the boards for the inexperienced. The Carter would be good for a reef trip as I bought it & great layout for a family. Saw one go with a fair bit work to do on the hard in Vic for 6-7k but a great low $ start.

22 foot macgregor sailboat. Comes with everything needed to sail. Swing keel, roller furler.
Comes with trailer that was only used for two seasons. I have the paper work on trailer and boat. The trailer is fairly new and goes for around $1200.
I bought the boat off original owner. I haven't used it the last couple of seasons. Don't want to pay storage if I'm not using it. Boat and trailer are free. You have to take both. I also have a 15 hp yamaha 4 stroke engine for $1400 if you need a motor."

I will pay for the transfer from stands to trailer. It's in a boatyard. Also has working sails, new winch for raising and lowering keel. Needs some cosmetic work. Sails very nice."
free sailboat with newer trailer
Holy crap! If only I were closer.........What do you think the towing weight on that would be? HMM, 850 miles....

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Boat and trailer are about 2,700 lbs. Equipment will add more weight to that as would the outboard.

I saw a Bob Miller IOR on the south coast of NSW go for $4000 which would just about equal the scrap value of the bronze keel. They're out there.

Personally I like the Harley Tasman I'm sitting in now, paid for it with the results of my first year of giving up smoking. The devil didn't build _all_ ferros.

That would have been an interesting delivery trip. 8-)

They're out there all right, though not many have bronze keels.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

10/23 There's an 80s.. 54 Hunter in CA, US on Yachtworld.. 30k Says sale pending.. couple others around 50K.. I imagine a 54 fin keel moves along pretty well... 300 sq ft of living space.. guess you would be stuck on a mooring ball for rent. On the bright side, the front deck would hold a nice sized runabout...

This is not my boat, but it seems about 40% of the asking of most 30-1 Morgan of that era.
