Even in good condition for it's age, the boat is not worth 30K.
I just went through this with my 1976 Allied
Mistress 39 ketch
The age is the killer. banks wont finance it and that leaves you with cash customers which immediately eliminates 98% of the buying
market looking at that age and price
Also bringing the price
down is the abundance of boats for sale
that are much newer than 1977 for only a few dollars more and they can finance those.
You will have to have a cult following to sell a Wright/Allied because those people know the real value, not in dollars, of a Wright/Allied. So, the buyer has the upper hand, not the seller. There is such a group in groups.yahoo.com. It's an Allied
group. I cant seem to pull them up right now so I cant give you the exact web address. Just look in Yahoo Groups.\
If the boat is in really good condition, they are great sailing boats and you wont be sorry.
Good luck in your quest.
