Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I don't know the year. It was for sale about 5 years ago in Venezuela. I recall the paint job being similar which is what made me think of it. I was aboard hull #2 about the same time which was a fairly crudely put together boat on the interior. I have since been on a newer Admiral which was very nicely finished but seemed to be very heavy.

I ended up passing on the boat primarily because there were sections on the interior where the fiberglass has pulled away from the plywood core and I had concerns about how far that went and what kind of moisture penetration had occurred. The boat looks pretty good from the outside, but inside you'd need to replace pretty much everything wood and all the wiring due to moisture damage, as well as stripping all the paint covering the interior fiberglass and removing large amounts of mold. It appears the left hull has had water to a level at least over the sole for some time, but all the soles including the main cabin would need to be replaced. The windows are probably the source of the leak and would need to be rebedded at best or replaced. Engines may or may not be OK, main is relatively new with some sun damage on an exposed area, not able to unfurl the jib but was replaced the same time as the main so may just need sacrificial replaced, standing rigging looked OK at deck level.
Overall I'd say this is a big project that could be a major project if there are big delam issues. It's a minimum 3 day trip to get to the boat from the U.S., including two 4 hour bus rides where you'll be the only gringo if you're not from Panama, so just looking at it isn't for the faint of heart. Also take into account the nearest haulout is in Colon which is some distance away, and you'd need to get it there to be inspected before you could get insurance, which would be problematic given my initial conversations with agents.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

This is a good price for a PDQ 36. I wonder if the condition is really "good".
Might be worth a look!

Happened to see this locally. Funny as some guys in New England were telling me just last month a used Gemini 105 is worth 120K. I said: " I've seen a bunch for sale as low as 60k"

Anyway might be a good deal if this the kind of boat you want.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

I searched this thread, but didn't find any mention of these three boats. Forgive me if they have already been discussed and I didn't find it. All in San Carlos, Mexico

2 Geminis -
3400 for $33,000

105M for $64,950

and a PDQ for $99,000


Has anyone looked at these boats?

Needs TLC. That doesn't sound bad.

Plenty of moisture evidence in those pics. Run away!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Has anyone seen a Prout Quest 33 / Event 34 or even better a Beneteau Blue II for sale in Europe? They all seem to be rare as.

Most bene blues have been rode hard and a lot of use. Still a cool boat. prout events seem to sell ( well ask for )for 30-40% more in the EU than in the us. I've seen 2 Events asking in the 60s in the US.. I like them nice boats for their size. Sprouts are great if you don't mind the drive legs, and can find one that has had great maintenance to stop water ingress issues via windows , deck penetrations etc.
