Marples CC 35 Tri Project

There is on Yacht World a Marples CC 35 project it's the one on Vashon Island in Seattle.
Does anyone know this project? Or have a guess on the cost and chances of completing this boat.

Re: Marples CC 35 Tri Project

Your best source of information would be to contact John Marples. He sold them the plans and is probably familiar with the boat and situation. This boat's been listed for a long time now. If you are not familiar with wood composite boatbuilding having a surveyor check the construction quality would be a logical step in applying a value. In truth a unfinished boat is hard to sell and is usually valued at the second hand price of the gear going with it. Owners aren't happy about this after the time and money put in but that is usually the case. I'm concerned about the wording of the ad where it is up to the buyer to verify that the components of the boat listed as part of its value are still there.
For comparison check into the assembled Searunner 37s in Mexico on Yachtworld. One for the same price of 19,000 and the other for 29,000.
