Well we went to have a look at the catamaran
, with a schionning boat builder
It is a much much worse than $50 - 100K to fix. The seller has quotes from a builder of $200K just for the decks but it looks like the hulls need to be done too, with cracks forming (the quote states likely to need to be done). The insides need to be ripped out as there have been extensive water leaks
, and is rotten. It needs to be fully rewired, no electrics working at all. Rigging
looks dire, mast
has same cracks as decks.
We wouldnt buy without some core
sampling being done, but the seller wont allow it.
Basically, if you could determine if the layup
of the hulls has been done correctly, which how can you!!, you would be purchasing
the first stage of the kit build, so approximatly 30% of build time completed (eg full fit out and fairing of whole boat required). You would have to love fairing to take it on, or be loaded $$$$. As they are asking 200K, spend at least 300K to finish, no profit for all your time and effort.
