I am looking to purchase
a Prout Snowgoose in the San Francisco
bay area. I will be ready to purchase
in December or January and my budget
is about 75k. I am planning to finance the boat with the vessel as collateral so it must pass a survey
and a surveyor
must report it as at least "fair" condition (I need to be able to finance about 65k after paying tax). So I think this should be doable as a 1985 snowgoose has a BUC value of 72-78k in fair condition and I only need to finance 65k.
I am aware of the one in Napa, it is in very poor condition (I already went to take a look).
Any leads or suggestions? I see that alot of Prouts are unfortunately on the east coast
although I do see one that used to be in California
and is now in the great lakes
...how did they get it there? What does that sort of shipment cost?
