Re: Looking to buy used large ship

1943 Coast Guard Cutter with steel hull, located in Anacortes, Washington, USA for $250,000. Runs and has upgrades. Likely expensive to maintain, even if not operated.

USA Registered. USCGC Acushnet was originally built as a U.S. Navy diver-class rescue and salvage ship, then served as a coast guard cutter for a long career. Always well maintained and substantially upgraded before her 2011 retirement. All engines ready to fire up. Opportunity for hundreds of ocean related industrial uses such as FEMA response ship or world class patrol boat. Big commercial galley, walk in freezers, water makers, hospital, theater, 80 berths, 13 heads and showers, laundry, 2 deck cranes and two Zodiac Hurricanes with diesel outdrives for tender vessels. Lots of extra tools and machinery included.

Re: Looking to buy used large ship

Rethink your mindset...or move to Sausilito. You want something big? Max out at 60', unless you plan on hiring a pretty much full time crew. A 100K will buy you someone's nightmare. There are reasons old boats are cheap. Just remember...these things SINK. Hey why don't you hire me to find you something you can actually ENJOY living on. I spent 30 years fixing other people's mistakes.

That actually sounds like a great idea

Re: Looking to buy used large ship

What is wrong with the people on this list? Glassgow got the vocabulary a little wrong when he referred to "ships" and "cruise ships" but he clearly stated his budget was $100K. No need to flame him, and no need to blame him for the supposed ills of other liveaboards on non-functioning boats. Sheesh.

Perhaps true, but then there is no harm in trying to guide him away from outcomes that are all too possible when absolute know-nothings get involved in schemes that are similar to his.

You may not care, but many of us do. Sheesh.

Re: Looking to buy used large ship

Sorry but, he states clearly, perfect English, "largest used boat as possible" and specifically "used old cruise ships that may not be functioning", or a houseboat or a barge, whatevs!

And willing to buy from anywhere, plans to bring it to live in Guatemala, but it doesn't need to be seaworthy,

Monthly expenses "not an issue (paid for by work

Puhleez. . .

Well said! Encouraging hair brained things is not fair the an OPer.

Fully functional, great live-aboard and you can get her down there on her own bottom.
