You can find good 26-27 foot cruisers with standing headroom for less than half that figure, so no, that's not a good price, unless the boat is absolutely Bristol in condition. The trailer helps a bit, but not enough to double the boat's cost.

Locations seems to make a difference to some.

Well it's hardly worth travelling a thousand miles for a boat costing $10K, unless you just like looking at boats!

(Plus the Canada/US border is closed, so someone in Canada would have to ship it in by truck.)

Obviously, the condition of the boat and gear is crucial at the lower-priced end of the market. Any sign of neglect, move on.

From a purchasers pov, the good thing about production boats of any kind is you can do comparison shopping. Someone around here was selling a Westsail 32 and an offer came from a person who had 3 others under consideration.

Several of the sailboat specification websites list both 1 inch balsa wood core between two layers of fiberglass for the hull and either an iron or steel ballast for the Reliant Ketch sailboats. Old boats can be a gold mine of scrap metal and other recyclables. Saw one boat sell for $6500, the lead ballasts alone was worth 3 times that.

As long as your labor is free, transportation to a free work site is free and disposal of the remains is free. And mitigation of any lead dust or vapor from cutting up the ballast or melting it is also free. Yes a real gold mine.

You only cut up and peel off the fiberglass and if it's a Bolt on keel it's even easier. Yes you'll want to use a filtered respirator. If you limit yourself to trailerable sailboat no licenses or permits are needed. You can scrap a boat in your backyard if you have the space. As long as your not in a nanny state or county there nothing stopping you. Yes, you could get a business license and permit/license to scrap but unless it your solo income there is no need.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Here's another one that might interest someone, "1979 Morgan North American 40 for $20,000" just posted up here in Ontario. Assuming that's Canadian funds, then the asking price is $15k in US dollars.
