If the boat is in good shape 20K is below market value. I found these photos of the boat, Skana Sting, as described by the seller but who knows how old the photos are

'Family of Four' would do well to consider this one... if only as a starter boat while they travel and get the feel...
If shes nearly as good as in the pic's she's around 2/3rds UK price.. a great deal

Do not know the sellers...

No I do not know the seller; but she has boards -points high and is fast for her age and time of design. Draft is like 16" boards up and 5' boards down. Would be a great go anywhere boat, fiberglass.

They were sold in two separate ways: Finished and Unfinished. In the unfinished version the interior was not finished, allowed the buyer to get into the boat at a lower price and finish the interior themselves. Depending on which Model, such as a Mark II, is the more desirable model - slightly longer waterline, additional length, 14 inches or so added to the stern. The y have been around long enough to have developed their own unique repair and upgrade issues. If he is structurally sound she is definitely worth a look. Good shape and painted should be worth 30K plus, poor shape certainly not more than 10K.

Both the MKI, MKII and MKIIA are listed in the free Multihull Dynamics database.

This one only has an 18' beam. Most other tris are 50% wider or more for this length. It might be a little tender. Perhaps good for daysailing charter and not so good for cruising.

For only $60 I'll take it sight unseen. Now I just have to find a 2 inch high delivery captain to get it to the west Coast of Canada.

That could be a sticker. I wonder how much Dockwise would charge for a 40" cat to Vancouver?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Just a lot of green stuff......NO rot at all....we will even be able to use the sails for a couple of more years, even though there is some sun damage.

Autopilot and all are in good shape, engines run GREAT, but I HATE the Catana 12 volt system, and may be replacing it soon.

I may also have to rebuild one of the daggerboards, so that could be a bit of a project, but all and all, the boat is like new, under a coating of green stuff.....LOL.
