It has the Perkins 85hp 4-236, 10kw Isuzu gen.,4kw backup gen.,Pur water maker, the main sail is on a mast mounted roller furling, and a bunch of other stuff. I figure it needs about 25k to make her new again. The house I originally bought four years ago for 45k, refinanced for 65k wich is what I owe on it now. He wants me to pay it off and trade strait across.It appraised at 85k. Our original plan was to sell everything and purchase a cat for around 250k. But if we got this boat we could keep our beautiful house on the river and have way more money to cruise on. I will be honest I don't know smack about mono's. The past four years I have been doing research on cats because I never thought I would go over to the dark side. But now I'm seriously considering this trade. If any one has any info on this boat or advise on what to do I Would be in your dept. Thank you very much
If your desire is a cat why pick this mono? What does the family think?

Is this a project boat thats been left to decay or a viable proposition?

Re: PERRY 47

An eight old thread resurrected, but a good one. Liked to read how a problem was easily solved with grace all round.
Was the OP and just now Surazo, talking about this kind of boat?
Used Robert Perry 47ft Cutter for Sale | Yachts For Sale | Yachthub
or this one?

Wishing you all sunny skies above, clear water below, gentle winds behind and a safe port ahead,
and when coming this way check,_Australia

Re: PERRY 47

Yes hank ,I'm speaking about this boats as a representative of extreme care situation .Anyway I prefer a Ketch CC .As i said my actual boat is a Perry 47 cc ketch .I know him the last 30 years when arrived brand new .It was built in litton marine ,Taiwan in 1981.
I changed my Van de stad 54 for him and I think that was a good deal .
