I'm looking to find a sailboat that if in good condition would be worth around $200k and on the newer side. maybe 10 years old or so, but nothing more than 20 years. I'm looking for one with damage that I can put in a year or 2 of work
and fix. So buying
for $10k to $80k, Then putting $40k to $90k in material dollars. My all in dollar amount is in the $130k range, give or take. Also I live in NJ and I can ship it, but the closer the better. If anyone knows of such a boat
please let me know...
I have looked at auctions (copart, cooper
, certified sales) and some private listings such as sailboatlistings.com and am not finding much that meets my criteria. I have heard that some salvagers work
directly with insurance
companies, but I don't have any rapport with any insurance
agency. Any advice
on how to contact an insurance company or otherwise locate a project/salvage boat
would also be helpful....?
