Try this for size... under $5K and seemingly reasonable condition... should tick most of your boxes...

Addendum... just noticed.. its a composite... but thats not necessarily a bad thing....

Wow! That looks nice!
Unfortunately the images are very blurry and small, but you are right, that would be worth looking at.
Also a little bit of a challenge that it is in ME. Would be quite a trip...

Thank you!
If you find one like that in NYC, let me know ;-)

Re: Newbie from the Northeast

Hey Jak, there is a boat like you're looking for in Somersworth NH. Been sitting by a garage down town for at least 10 years. You might get it for next to nothing, but you'd have to do the refit. No idea what comes with it. Never saw a mast, but.... Hey, good luck in the search.

Re: Newbie from the Northeast

Google Map : Rouleau's Auto Repair Inc, Main Street, Somersworth, NH. It is next to the next building south. Use the "street look " option and you can see it. Been there forever. As long as there isn't two feet of water in her, she might be next to free. I have NO idea what is going on with it, but it might be fun to find out.

Re: Newbie from the Northeast

T&A34,

thanks. If it would be on Long Island I'd look at it for sure,
At least as of now I am thinking I could save quite some money by staying local.

I got a quote to bring a Pearson Ariel from NJ to NYC, not much more than say 50 miles, and the shipper wanted $2000 (was not in sailable condition).

But if you have a picture please send it, soaking up every bit of info I can get here.

Thanks,
J.

Re: Newbie from the Northeast

Hmm, that looks like a Triton. The ports look very much like it, to me. Of course you can only zoom in so much at Street View, but she looks ok-ish, or at least not completely rotten.

That's really funny, checking out boats in Google Street View!

Thanks!

I actually might give them a call...
Did I just say I want to stay local?

Oh, well.

Re: Newbie from the Northeast

If you are in NYC, go to City Island and go to the yacht clubs; Harlem, City Island, and there are several others. They are looking for new members and are pretty friendly. They are working clubs so there is a nice cross section of people, and a full range of boats. Maybe there is something there, and it is a good place to start. Go soon while people are still around.
