[QUOTE=Johann10;1740322]Hello there is a dufour 1975 27 in my area (Washington state) for sale
at 8000$. The boat is in excellent condition. Rebuilt volvo md6a in 2012 surveyed in 2014 everything on the list was taken care of by a professional yard. I've heard that these boats were absolutely terrible sailers. And then I've heard that they were great in heavy weather. Good deal bad deal?
There are many catalina 30s in my area for 10,0000$ but all have atomics gas engines. And for 18 k ones with original diesels.
There is also a nice Santana 30 with a newer yanmar
but it is in Canada
. Not sure if it's easy to bring back from another country.
And an islander 28 with an original diesel
. But it had been repainted and looks to be in good condition.
Some boats have better sails
then others which can be replaced easily. but I'm worried about getting a boat with a bad motor which I understand can be a very expensive problem. A new motor installed couldeasily double the cost of the boat.[/QUOT

Tens of thousands made and still in use
You just need a blower
They last forever
, I think you can get an
Entire rebuilt engine
