Too much work for me!
I can fix but would not want to rebuild.
I'll go back to the work I know now.

Fortuna island spirit catamarans are out of business

Fortuna island spirit catamarans are out of business, and Admiral Yachts has been working on purchasing the molds, therefore it would be impossible to get any support from the manufacturer in trying to restore this island spirit 401 on ebay, also getting parts, wiringdiagrams, and molded or made parts would be very hard. Also very IMPORTANT read the description where it states that bulkheads has been severly damaged if not destroyed, when fiberglass or laminate get heated up from a fire it gets very brittle and weak, the structual integrity of this boat is definately compromised.

Well it took some searching for me to find what you were referring to (no worries tho).

I am pretty certain that was an accurate price for 2006 when the manufacturer was still in business and desparately needing to sell a certain VOLUME of boats in order to stay afloat. As you have already pointed out they didn't make it.

Insurance & financing issues

Another issue is marine insurance. You won't get any on a salvage boat until it is repaired. In addition, if you can't get insurance, you can't get financing. The listing is a somewhat misleading in that sense because it has a tab for financing. Bidder beware for sure.

Careful on eBay

Probably something you'd wanna have closely surveyed before spending the bucks. And something you'd wanna see in person yourself.

On another note, I got a call from two different people over a year ago that asked if my boat was for sale - which it wasn't. Ended up being that someone had constructed a fraudulent listing on eBay - selling my boat! It was freaky. The crook used photo's of the boat from an old listing off a legit brokers website from where I bought my boat. They almost got a couple people wiring 10% deposits down on the boat. I contacted eBay right away. They pulled the listing immediately. I heard it was someone from Romania trying to pull a scam. Although I'm sure there's some legit listings on eBay it's best to proceed with extreme caution. And check to see if it's documented.
