    Hey there, One of the reasons we gravitated to the SM is that they are never chartered and have great bones. Meaning that the owners usually did a good job keeping them up and sailing around the world with them. So you'll find some price variation based on how updated they are. But they are all pretty much worth what they're asking. 1991 was definitely on the cheaper side ...a 2000 series or much younger one would have cost 50-75% more. Basically I bought the second cheapest one I could find, and it was still ready to roll. There's a guy who is an amel expert you can contact. He runs an Amel training school but also does remote surveys. For 500 bucks, when I went to visit the SMs, I took hundreds of photos that he requested, and diagnosed problems from his house in Texas. An absolute savant when it comes to these boats. Name's Bill Rouse, google that and/or Amel School. He ain't cheap, but he's the best, and he's pretty fair. Anyway, hope you find one! They are AMAZING boats
