Re: good learning sailboat for SFBAY easily resellable?

A look through Craig's List turned up this Newport. It's a good stable roomy boat at a very attractive price. Definitely would want to check it out as the seller seems to be trying to sell the slip location, not the boat. Price is good and should be able to recoup on sale if it doesn't require much of an infusion of cash to sail.

1981 Newport 30 Mark II

If this is about learning the fun, challlenge and expense of owning a sailboat. Buying one for the right price is a good idea. Have done it more than once and came out even to a slight profit. Hardest part is controlling the urge to add equipment and expense to improve the boat.

Thanks for all of your great help!


I'll be looking first into a non-equity boat share for the year and second into a great deal on a little boat to buy and resell (any thoughts on a Catalina 22 with slip at Berkeley marina?)

Anything I should be looking for in particular regarding boat share other than boat condition and character of partner?

Sonar 23 if you can find one on the left coast. Best, most versatile daysailer there is, perfect learning boat. Trailerable if that ever becomes an option.

A J-22 is a nice boat too.

Re: good learning sailboat for SFBAY easily resellable?

Someone was reading CF, and posted their 1/3 partnership in a Cal 29 at Berkeley Marina...

And as I understand it, when you are ready to move on, you just resell it to someone else, so effectively it only costs you $90/month.

1/3 partnership offered for a 1974 Cal2-29

I think David M hit the nail on the head. One designs that have an active fleet will probably hold there value the best, and you can probably crew on other peoples identical boats without having to mix it up on the start line before you are ready. I am not a racer at heart, but sailing with a good skipper in races can teach you a lot(and at their expense). Good Luck and have FUN. ____Grant.
