Different boats. No need to go into the Alden history
. Plenty of online resources to read. I'd say the 90 Bermudian Sloop
at 309 is over priced but I've not read into how the owners managed her nor know the current
owners. I'm a 92 Bermudian sloop and I value my girl at 250 based on her pedigree and experience. I was offered more than 300 for her 2 years ago from a credible buyer.
What will make some people sick is I paid less than 90k for her after the decks were redone and a year after she was repowered because a friend was the bankruptcy attorney for the owner and knew I was looking for a new boat. 5 years ago.
value was over 250k and I've since replaced her standing and running rigging
, upgraded all heads, electronics
and added a replacement sail inventory the past 2 years.
I'd say I've put 200k in her and I'm willing to lose 50. That is the nature of the beast.
