How come I never find these 'deals'???
I have dibs on the first 10M that appears on the market... you can have the next one
We did talk to the people selling the above mentioned boat. It had been sitting behind the owners house unused for several years. If I remember correctly, the owner had to go into assisted living and his friends or relatives were selling the boat for him. They did sell it for a very good price
(for the buyers!). I think I saw it listed at $49,000 in the end.
Check out this newly listed boat. It looks like a great deal.
1985 Catalac Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com
The name of the boat is Hetty B and the owners have a website.
Welcome Aboard S/V Hetty B
They are anxious to sell her as soon as they can. I talked to the owner and she is very straight-forward about the boat and anything that it might need to get cruising. She mentioned that the standing rigging
would need to be checked out, hence my post about replacing the rigging
on a Catalac
10 in case it needed replacing.
I was going to drive down to St. Pete this weekend to take a look, but we've decided that despite the very tempting asking price
, we really want something a little bigger for long term live aboard cruising. We currently have a 48' motor
vessel that is for sale
, so we are afraid we might be unhappy with a catamaran
under 39'. So we'll keep looking for that Prout 39 or Catalac
12 or Solaris 40.
So this one is all yours!!
