Yes ,there are many options coming out for play at the moment on the market,probably all over the world due to more stringent financial times.
e.g there is a 50 ft timber yacht on aussie ebay at the moment,started at $1,now up to around $3,000:00 with a day to go. Due to a divorce,loaded with goodies.Will be interesting to see what it goes for.
has the full history
and was actually built in Joe Adam's building yard up in Port Macquarie ( and under his guidance -I have the photos to prove it ) by a builder
by the name of Ryan De Graff who apparently did his building time in Holland
We are going to take some considerable time working out exactly how we are going to fit it out but it comes with full plans of layout if we want to go with that.
I am having a tussle with my conscience on whether or not to keep my 40 ft steel hull
I was planning to rebuild
.Only so much time. Would be good if I can on sell it as a project but I would be very sad to have to cut her up for scrap.Then again the bits and pieces that came with her far exceed my costs so far.Maybe find a partner to help with it as the rent is minimal and the rent where my Adams
sits is only $50 per month.?
Might do what you are doing-go for it.
Sounds like you have your passion to rebuild
( and recycle ) set on the right path.Good luck to you.I have found that only the brave get ahead in this world and when they step outside their comfort zone it is amazing how many people come out of the woodwork to help you when they see passion at its best-pure.
Did you see the 63 ferro
on the forum recently.?The goodies alone in this boat would have exceeded the asking price
.All it needed was a bit of a "haircut " to get rid of the butt ugly pilot house and build a more sleek one and it would have been quite presentable.
Good luck with the Roberts.
Post some pic's if you get it.
