Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

40 foot, 40 years old, claims to be original owner. If pictures are recent, looks like a lot of boat for $25K:

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I love the Columbia 34. I have surveyed plenty of them and they are a big little yacht. Pity this one is so trashed. Just as well we don't have smelling abilities via the net.
Cheers

Another "needs TLC" boat. Looks like it's a nice pilothouse bluewater cruiser and doesn't look terrible in the pix.

I am actually going to look at this one tomorrow. Any insight would be appreciated. Looks like an awesome boat if it's not thrashed.

45 foot Sail Boat - $24,500 (South Houston)

This one has been on E-Bay and nobody is bidding on it at the above price. What they don't mention in the Craigslist ad is that it sank in fresh water during the freeze this winter. It has also been vandalized and at least one of the winches has been cut out of the deck. You can see the pic of the hole in the E-Bay bid, but they don't show it here. It might actually be worth it if you can get them down in the $19K range and the vandalization isn't much worse.

1973 Columbia 45 - TRADE - $15,000 (Ventura CA)

This is also listed for $10K. He has an engine for it but it would need to be installed.

He actually posted here. He finally saw the light and has decided to sell it. He was an older gentleman and I hope he buys something smaller and more complete.

If this boat is as pictured and had a running engine, I would move across the country and buy it.

Yeah, this one looks pretty good to me too. One question however: why do the designers of these sort of motorsailer-ish boats always put the dinette athwart ship? Don't they think these boats heel?

46' Hans Koll Schooner

It's a ferro boat, but it looks nice. If it really is $1500, then the engine and a winch or two are worth the price alone. It comes with a lot of stuff. If you're going to purchase it, just make sure you know what you're doing.
