Wouldn't touch it at that price, the inside looks like a pigsty. Maybe $25k.

That yacht was supposedly refurbished in 2012. I don't think he has even raised a cleaning cloth to wipe a bench since then.

For the money there's a Tri listed for sale in the classifieds that I would much rather have.

Can't see one at that price. If you're referring to Hot Sauce (the Trevor Banks design) it's USD65k which is a long way north of AUD48k.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

A friend of mine has one I've sailed on. Trevor took the main hull molds of a Cross 39, or 36? R and stretched them out to the banks length. The one I was on had hull steps like a Lex Nicol tri for more room. It sails well, I think there might be 4 of them out there. Check the wood cap strips on the beams etc.... The one I saw was made using polyester resin.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

In my experience, any "cruising" boat (with its multitude of systems) being used will have several on-going maintenance issues. Now a boat for sale which was loved by its owner but hasn't been used for some time, will have more issues.

The asking price for Hot Sauce is down to USD39k

$39k is about $51k AUD, right?

Well yes, if you ignore the cost of getting it here, plus import duty and GST. More like AUD70k landed in Australia.

It's a very good deal regardless. Unfortunately I have an offer in on a 40' Aussie registered cat in the Philippines right now so can't make an offer on this one.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

This one's a proper project. A lot's been done, but still a real lot to do...

Who would have known it started out like this....


Seems like a lot of effort has gone in after the capsize and retrieval for 80 G's

Do I need a captain's license to exit US waters?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

We looked at the Simpson about 3 years ago. Not a factory finish but may be well built.
