Re: Odd Hull Design?

A bargain would depend on the engines, They say only 1400 and 1800 hours but are they shot? I'm guessing a new mast and rigging would be about $35K to $40K assuming that you could reuse the boom and sails. JSI which is close might be more affordable on the new mast. I can't tell if there is a headsail furler now so that maybe something to add in. Engine replacement runs about $200 to $400 per horsepower each. Multiply that by the 180 HP currently there although you could probably go a little smaller. So you are looking at at least $36,000 and probably more. If the VWs aren't a clone engine then you get to do the mounts too and maybe new instruments. I would think that being all in for about $200K would be OK.
He did spay in insulation on the inside so I think you can't see any of the aluminum to check for corrosion. There's no pics of the bilges or engine bays so ya just don't know what's goin on down there.

Yes, it would be no suprise if this was the case, but the link shows a rigged
vessel in some shots. Have i missed something?

If you read the description in the add it would seem the original 65' mast was damaged at some point and a 50' mast was fitted. As best I can tell, the 50' mast is still in place.

Re: Odd Hull Design?

Why doesn't someone in the US just ask the broker for a detailed inventory and enlighten us all by posting it up.

Might even help to sell it!
