Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

This is a newly reduced price in Toronto, Canada:

1981 Cabo Rico 38 Cutter about $29,800 US ($39,800 CAD)

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-sailboat/cit...ser/1422534051

This is a great price for a very bluewater capable boat.
Big engine, dinghy, self-steering, tanbark sails, some very good gear. It appears to be in good condition.
Won't last long at this price, imo.

That is a nice looking boat (if one likes the styling, which I do).

Yeah, If I were 20 years younger...

Also a cutter rig is kinda nice once you get used to it. What we find is that it gives a lot more sail configurations and the biggest sail can be of a reasonable size so it is easier to handle for old ladies like me. This one appears to have a roller furler on the yankee (fores'l) and just a roller reefer on the stays'l.

Yet another great boat that makes me regret living in the skinny waters of this part of Florida.

Oh cry me a river, buddy...the St. Lawrence has just melted enough to carry away the ice floes! Not yet open for navigation. Launch day is at least a month away.

Still, that little Compac 27 I posted a few days ago would be nice for your area. I know they're a bit utilitarian but I rented one in the Keys to sail on the Gulf side and it was ideal, I'd say. When we ran aground we'd just jump out and push!

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Someone asked me about buying and importing boats from Canada to the US. Frankly I don't know every detail, but according to customs officials, boats manufactured in North America (NAFTA) won't have duty added.

Buying a boat in the US and bringing it into Canada can be easy or it can be really horrid, depending on the Customs officials. We will never again bring anything through the port of entry on the Richelieu River north of Lake Champlain after the major reaming out we got last time.
Canadian ports of entry on the St. Lawrence seem to be more rational.

Shipping by road gives a better experience, imo. I think the officials aren't as bored or envious.

Do you know if there is a time limit on that? We have a 1985 boat, USA registery, built in the UK. We have thought of changing it to Canadian registry (dual citizen). Duty is prohibitive.

Oops, I misspoke. I know less than I thought I did!
According to this website, there is now a 10% duty on boats imported to Canada, although that may be a part of the NAFTA tussle that may be out-of-date/settled. There is useful advice in the comments on that page.

I think you need to call the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) or go into a border crossing office. Get the name and position of the person who advises you there as the rules are variously enforced, in my experience. The man who reamed us out on the Richelieu was making stuff up on the fly, we found.

With "behind mast roller furler"?





Has anyone seen this kind of furling?

Quite a few times. It’s essentially just a headsail furler on a wire aft of the mast.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

hi everyone,

well, i found a pearl of a gal and am unable to move forward on her myself.

Straebe is a Great Dane 28, a classic plastic, solid-to-the-bone, scandinavian built sloop that underwent extensive refit in 2017.

the owners bought her three years ago, did a huge refit and sailed her around the UK last year. she is in splendid condition!

The Great Dane 28 can be found all over the world. there is an active owner's website and a company in Sweden that supplies parts for her still. see Welcome to the Great Dane 28 owners' club - Great Dane 28 owners' club

the boat is known for handling extremely well, has very good motion. the comfort ratio is above 33. she has a full keel 1m4, lead, encapsulated. the hull is full glass, hand laid and thicker than that of the Contessa. this gal is solid and dry.

her engine is a 20H Beta that dates 2004

she spent winter in a hangar near Amsterdam and is visible to view there, but will, in principle, be making her way back to the UK in May/June.

as i looked into her in a serious way (and, yes, fell in love), i cannot let this boat go unnoticed. it would be a shame for her to have to wait to sail again.

here she is:

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Catalina 30 for $9000 cdn = $6750 usd. Looks like a great deal...not a project.
Located on Lake Erie, southern Ontario, Canada.
Freshwater means the boat is likely in better shape than might be expected.

Popular model boat at a great price.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...m_medium=email

From the ad:

Our loss is your gain!!! Because of a medical condition we are not able to use the boat any longer.
If the ad is up, it is still available.

Winter storage included as well as engine winterizing (done by marina). ***The fact that the paint has faded on the hull (cosmetic only) was taken into consideration when we priced the boat. It is a solid boat.
No survey***
Sailboat is located on Lake Erie at Erieau.
Great cruising and live aboard boat with an 11 ft beam.
All cushion foam has been replaced (2017) with marine foam including beds.
King size V-berth that you can sit up in. Dining area folds down to a queen bed and a double aft.
Cradle included.
Engine: Atomic 4 (gas) with a folding 2 blade prop.
Sails: Main sail, spare main sail and a 135 Genoa (roller furler)
Bottom paint every year.
Comes with Raymarine depth sounder and Navman chart plotter, new toilet (2017), slip covers, custom bi-fold companion way door, crib boards, built in AM/FM/CD/DVD with bluetooth player and speakers, VHF, anchor and rode.
Have manuals for most items.
Boat has always been winterized by the marina. No survey available.
Serious inquiries only. No delivery available.
