Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

My good friend wants to come out to the Chesapeake for the summer and buy something cheap in the $1000 range as a day sailer. He wants to be able to sell it at the end of summer so he needs not to spend much money. The boat should be in good sail able condition and be located in the northern Chesapeake preferable near Baltimore or Annapolis.

I know there are a few deals to be had out there and it never hurts to ask. So ill start here. He is currently interested in a hunter 22, and it has a newer 4hp outboard and in good shape for $750.

By the way, I will be moving aboard the Ariel for the first time tomorrow! I am officially jobless as of yesterday. I hope to spend the summer on the Chesapeake and then take the Ariel to the Bahamas or the Florida keys for the winter. Ill see you all out on the water.

Thank you,
-TD

Search on Yachtworld.com. Catalina and ODay are two good boats to plug into the search box.

Re: Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

Aloha and good luck on the boat search. Craigslist and sailboatlistings.com are a couple more to check. Yachtworld commands a higher price usually.
I 2nd Catalina 22 and O'Day. The really inexpensive boats are Clipper Marine, Bayliner, American 23, Reinell. MacGregors and Newports can be had too with minimum cost and are a good value if they have been cared for.
Congratulations on your new lifestyle.
kind regards,

Google boat brokers chesapeake bay. I did this the other day and found thousands of boats from $100- $1,000,000.00. Good luck.

Re: Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

Congrats on your moving aboard! I would check cl as that seems to be the best in regards to pricing. I keep my boat at the anchorage marina in Canton, but right now, I'm on the hard doing a refit. That being said, I'm at Pasadena Yacht Yard. There are a few cheap or free boats there according to a few guys I have talked to. I would show up during business hours and talk to the staff at the Yard and ask more. You could always save the drive and call.

Re: Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

A good starting point might be to call around all the marinas and storage yards in the area, pretty much all marinas end up with a few boats every year that they end up owning for unpaid storage, they are always cheap as their goal is to get it gone to free up the space for paying customers again.

Re: Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

Currently posting from the Ariel in maryland, first time! Thanks for the great replies, I knew you guys could come up with something. We will be following up on the Coronado 25 For sure.

I have been tinkering with my Ariel since I got here. Tomorrow I'm off to get some new running rigging and parts! I think I may be the only one in the marina tonight.

Coronado is a pretty good boat just check the coring on the deck and cabin for softness.
kind regards,

I've got a 23' Oday Tall rig, which was completed in 2003, it only has 5 seasons on everything. It has a trailer, but also ports a shoal keel so its like a big little boat. I can let it go cheap because we are loosing our storage. I'm in CT. If you want to chat send me a PM.

It sank on land. It is very sailable and has a nice motor but the interior is ruined.

As for the Oday 23', If it is located in Connecticut it would be a no go. The boat needs to be near the Chesapeake or the eastern shore.

Re: Find my friend a boat 22'-27' (Chesapeake)

Dan -- that O'Day has a trailer. You could have it on the Chesapeake in 5 or 6 hours. . . . Also, the trailer opens up resale possibilities to a big group of people who don't want marina or mooring fees.

When I was recently looking for a 21-23' trailer sailer, I saw a lot of them that lacked either trailer or outboard. Boats that small without trailer often go dirt cheap because people who want a marina boat want something bigger, and people who want a trailer-sailer . . . want a trailer. Finding a boat with the full trifecta -- good boat, working outboard, good trailer -- for a low price, was a rare and beautiful thing.
