2013 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469 - Dorian recovery

Hi all,
Hope you are all doing well.
I own a 2013 Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 469. I moved the boat to a slip in Nassau early last year. Then in July I moved it to Marsh Harbor in the Abacos for dry storage for hurricane season. Unfortunately, the eye of Dorian went right over Marsh Harbor. The mast broke and the swim platform ripped off but most of the other damage is more cosmetic in nature.

I went to visit the boat this weekend to start prepping it to get it back to Florida for repairs. Unfortunately it's difficult for me to take time off work to get it back to Florida, I can't wait in West End for a weather window to cross the Gulf Stream. So I'm offering it for sale to anyone who has the time to deal with recovering it.

The interior is largely untouched. Some rainwater accumulated in the low point. Electrical panel and battery charger work, lights work. Rudder looks straight. Keel/hull joint looks solid and undamaged. Nav instruments work. Not able to test the engine and generator but working to get the boat upright and then can test those. It looks like only rainwater came into the boat (from the generator cover going missing) so I expect the engine to work without problem and generator as well.

I had the surveyor who surveyed the boat when I bought it back in 2017 do an appraisal. It came out to $110K-$135K as-is, where-is, and $235K-$260K restored. Repair cost likely about $50,000-$60,000. The mast is the most expensive part, about half that. I have a new stern pulpit and generator cover bought which will give the buyer.

Asking $110K. I will pay for storage at the yard through the closing date. I'm working to get the boat upright now. This would be a great project for someone who has more time than I do and wants to do some of the restoration work as a project and has time to motor it back to Florida.

Take care everyone, happy to answer any questions.

I'm interested in a project of this kind. However, I believe that I'd want to have a full survey carried out, before considering an offer and it doesn't sound like that is possible yet?

Did you retain title after the insurance company wrote the boat off?
Obviously I would also wish to establish ownership.

Look forward to some clarification and much appreciated.

Hi Ulsterman, a survey would be most useful once the boat is upright which I hope to happen in the next week. You could survey it now but it's hard to test everything and really dig in because moving around the interior is challenging. Once I get it upright I will take a couple days off work, fly down and test the motor and generator by having the water intake suck out of a bucket. If that's good, it shouldn't be hard to motor to West End and from their either motor across to FL or just have TowBoatUS come tow it back, or get a buddy to tow it. I've always tried to minimize hours on the motor, I think there are only 300 hours on the motor and about 100 hours on the generator.

Re: title, the insurance company did not total the boat. Sadly, I had trouble renewing the insurance when it expired in June because the boat was staying in a slip in Nassau. US insurance companies will insure you out to 100-150 miles from Florida but not only if the boat is visiting the Bahamas, not living there. I was in process of lining insurance up when the hurricane hit. But an insurance company would not have totaled the boat anyway; the boat is very repairable.

I'm only selling it because the same job which let me afford this boat and pay it off also makes it almost impossible for me to put the time in to get it back to FL and get it back in shape.

This is going to be a really nice project for someone who can take time off to get it back to FL and start working on it. Lots of little things needed; there is nothing stove in that needs major repair. The boat is gorgeous and hard to find one listed for sale under $300K.
