1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

FREE!! 1966 Salar 40 Motor Sailer, currently in winter storage in marina Highlands, NJ. Due to medical issues, I cannot put the boat in the water this coming spring. I NEED TO SELL BOAT BY June 2021. If boat not sold, I'm going to cut it up and part out the engine, bow thruster, ect. Its a shame, the boat doesn't deserve this fate. Liveaboard?? 90 gals of fresh diesel in 2 tanks, ready to move to your port within 200 miles. 20 hrs on a recent install 75hp Yanmar 4jh4-TE diesel. Lewmar bow thruster installed last year. Hydraulic steering and autopilot installed 3 yrs ago(controller not working). Solar panels. New 130 Genny. No m'sail. Roller furling needs work. Interior is a project interrupted.
Auxiliary equipment available, but not incl in price: New Radar, 12" chartplotter+AIS B never installed, new refrigeration, SSB radio and tuner, etc.

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

I'm unclear as to whether this boat is offered for FREE, or for some undisclosed price?

Not personally interested, but surely there will be many who are. Salar 40s are well respected designs!

Seems like he's trying to sell it, but has a deadline and would rather give it away than chop it up. I'm also not in the market, but it does look like a project with real potential.

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

I've tried to sell boat for several years, reducing price multiple times. I've run out of time medically, it needs to go. I've stored the boat every winter, launch in the spring, keep it at my dock during summer, haul it for winter storage ,repeat for past 15 yrs. Can't do it anymore. The boat is being offered FREE, or best offer, if there are multiple people interested. Its a shame, its a solid boat hull, but a big project interior wise. On the east coast, slips for 40' boats are pricey, so a project boat is a tough sell

The boat definitely has value. If I might suggest some clarity...I do not know how much you were asking for the vessel or why it didn't move. It could be the price was too high, selling the wrong time of year or even that no one knows how to hold a screwdriver anymore. Regardless, if you total up the used value of all the items you are going to sell from it...
Engine $3000
Thruster$500
Winches$500
sails $500
Misc for the price of the gear...as is...where is. $500
= $5000
I am assuming that with your health, you might not be able to decommission the boat yourself, so you would need to pay someone to do so. I would imagine that might be 1/2 the amount of the gear you remove.

I don't think you should ever "give" a boat away. Someone has to have "skin in the game", otherwise they might not appreciate it. Please consider selling it to someone for the price of the gear. As is, where is. Advertise at your local harbor, craigslist and ebay. Chances are, you will have a few takers.

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

Make a video tour of the boat describing it and put a narration of what's wrong/needs fixing in the video. Then put it up on a sailing channel on you tube as "I HAVE A FREE BOAT - Come take it!" or something similar.

Someone is going to grab this boat without doubt, for the right individual this project has some real potential.

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

I hope Siberian Sea is right! We've friends with thousands of miles on a Salar 40, and once made so, they can be kept immaculate, if you want. Competent and comfortable boats.

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

Yeah these things draw big money in Australia, although most are 20-30 years newer.
I love them, good luck!

Re: 1966 Salar 40 Center Cockpit Motor Sailer

Any ideas how much it would cost to get this lady in the water and down to West Palm Beach, FL? Im looking to buy and refit my first boat. I would need something I can live aboard (in the water) while doing most of the repairs. Is this something that I could do that with? Our timelines match perfectly. I wouldnt be able to pick up until after or Winter season here due to work (May would be perfect).

My email is Chefdlking@gmail.com

If you still have this boat in April, let me know Ill figure out a way to get it home.

It's good to know such a cool boat won't be scrapped!
