Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Most of the searunners I've looked at have needed (or already had completed) some repairs to the decks or around some of the many hatches. Fortunately on a plywood boat the repairs are very straightforward if not too extensive. These problems can be much, much worse on the polyester (vs epoxy) boats.

But remember on these type of repairs what you see from the surface often gets 10 times worse once you start to dig into it..

Overall needing winches and having been sailed for a few year with a blown motor sounds like a bad case of deferred maintenance (you know they didn't put $ into it if they didn't fix these things) that will show up elsewhere,...but it apparently still sails & still could be a fair deal if the bones are solid!

For the right person, pretty simple to grease & rebuild winches, repair or replace (perhaps with used) the diesel, or even throw on an outboard and go...

Another thing to check for on a boat like this would be waterlogged boards or mini keel. The centerboard if free of obstruction can be pulled up through the trunk while the boat is in the water using the main halyard.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The Intercontinental Trimaran is sold ( to me!). I lost my Searunner in Hurricane Irma and this boat is as close as I could get to a replacement. I was lucky to find it and will go back up to the Panhandle and close on it and begin the long journey back home to St. Thomas, planning on a haul out in South Florida and taking Bruce Van Sant's Thornless path back.

Despite the boat being 50 years old, it was made of fiberglass, instead of plywood and appears to be holding up very well. Time will tell.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Bump,

Personally looking for a mid 43-48' ish catamaran project but would not rule out a tri. If anyone has any leads I would be open to a finders fee. Its hard to hunt them all out with most projects being locally for sale in yards and not on the internet. Preferably on the east coast of the US but would be open to taking a look at boats anywhere in the us, Caribbean, and central america. I have a broad budget that can grow or shrink with the state and condition the boat is in so willing to look at everything.

Please let me know if any of you have any leads, Thanks!!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Not on east coast, maybe not so much of a project but maybe less money over all: https://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/...550626405.html

Gave these guys a call once; they are pretty rude & seemed entirely uninformed on basic aspects of the TriStar. Their push was "come kick the tires & make us an offer." Very much the used car salesmen type, so would avoid wasting time with them unless you're in the area & able to drop by for a look.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Assuming you want a multi that's fun to sail, I would look at a different design because putting accommodations (WEIGHT!) in the ama's is one of the worst things you can do to a trimaran.

CruisingWorld and Yachting World might disagree:
https://www.cruisingworld.com/sailbo...45-boat-review
The best yachts of 2018? These are the 5 European Yacht of the Year 2018 winners - Yachting World

That said, I've personally not had a chance to sail a Horstman (yet). Have you?
