A bargain would depend on the engines, They say only 1400 and 1800 hours but are they shot? I'm guessing a new mast
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.
