It is a pretty boat. I'm not sure that it's the best deal that I've seen, but it certainly appears to be one of the better ones. I don't think it'll last for long and if a buyer is a good negotiator, he/she might even get it for less. Of course, like any "good deal", there might be an unmentioned reason that the price is so low. Buyers should always be cautious.

That teak deck looks very close to end of life.

Unfortunately, teak decks are just another maintenance item on the boats that have them. They can be refurbished with a bit of additional sweat equity.

I've replaced one teak deck and removed another. I would not call either normal maintenance. Lots of bungs missing and the bungholes appear to be rather shallow. If the deck is leaking it's a pretty big number.

Agree 110%. I helped a friend strip his. Luckily only a few small areas of water intrusion. For me, teak deck lower the price as eventually they will have to be removed. Itís difficult to tell if there is extensive damage underneath or not. On my friends Petersonís 44, it was 100 hours to remove, about 50 hours to fill the holes with epoxy/mill fibers/cabosil and another 50 hours to mask and non-skid. Imagine nit you had to hire that out to a yard...$20,000!

Have you priced out 16 or 19mm teak recently? That's why so many remove and not replace.

Shaft and transmission. State of anodes.
Electrical/plumbing should also have been replaced, if not, you're gonna have some fun...
Paint job, topsides and deck. Some people manage to keep gel-coat for 40 years, but usually boats this age have been painted.
Condition of sails. State of thru-hulls.
Rigging, mast fittings, mast...

Having bought a '76 boat some years ago, I know these things...sigh.

I'm looking for something fairly specific, so it might take a while for me to find the boat that I'm looking for. In the meantime, I'll keep sorting through the ads that I find and posting the boats that I see that fit into the criteria of this topic.

There are a fair number of ads for boats that are under that $30K cap, but are in such terrible shape that I don't even bother sharing them. I would be happy to do that if people are interested in seeing train wrecks, but they just seem like a waste of bandwidth to me.

When I do find the boat that I'm looking for, I'll make sure to post a notice.

+1 Looks great. Of course, pictures could be ten years old, could be all kinds of problems with a boat this age, etc.

If the decks are the only major problem, this could be a great deal for someone willing to put in the work. In some ways, a "project" boat with just one major project is better than a boat that is tired overall and needs attention to all of its systems. This is a lot of boat for $20K.

I think this line of the ad might be an indication: "1982 Olson 30 in good condition for charter or charter to own."

$1000 might be the charter rate.

That makes sense.

I follow them and a few others redoing their OIs. We got ours from CL for 10k USD. I looked it over pretty hard. Originally he was asking 23k. Lots of work to be done. Currently ours (S/V Just Smile and Wave) is on the hard in St. Mary's boat services yard in Georgia. Morgans are not for everyone. They are great for what we want to do at this point in our lives.
