I would think you could ciuld ship a good back from the USA and save some serious money. Just my opinion
Prima 50 is not a bad engine however parts are stupid expensive

This is what brings Australian buyers unstuck. Say he bought your boat at $85k USD had it transported to Oz then payed import tax his total would be about $166,750 AUD. That's a big number.

What stood out for me was the Freedom inverter charger BUT had a 2 amp charger connected. No mention of whether the Freedom was ever tested.

That and the engine indicate some severe issues that would include heavy financial burdens.

Over the next 8 years I was involved in all aspects of the construction of the yacht*

*Meaning - I was shoved into every nook and cranny that was too tight of dad to get to, you have to love child labor after the launch we spent the next seven years bay and day sailing and cursing the coast line of Australia.

Sadly life got in the way and I was pulled away from the sailing.

I was hooked nevertheless, I love sailing, working with my hands and working on projects. I have done every thing from renovating houses to entire blocks of units.

The key for me is the foundation and I couldn’t agree more with the quote from Gord May

"If you didn't have the time or money to do it right in the first place, when will you get the time/$ to fix it?"

When life gets in the road we lose our love and passion and neglect sets in.

The yacht is listed for $115K, I would look to acquire the vessel for $85k to $90k return the love and passion, however I do not know if that an end point of $110K to $120k would be commercial end point for this yacht being brought back to life.

What your thoughts?
Offer $45K cash.

Buy a boat that is ready to go. Spend time sailing, not being a shipwright. There will be plenty of things to fix and upgrade even on a "good" boat.

Might be different where you are, but in the U.S. a survey should include fair market price. Surveyors generally pay to have access to soldboats.com for exactly this reason. Your insurance company will likely need a valuation as well before writing a policy.

Boats sounds pretty thrashed from the report.
