If everything checks out on that, that is a good one IMO.

If I were planning a long stay trip to the bay area I would snap this one up . Just bring my lfp and my mini pressure washer from my defender . Spend a year sailing her in Southern California. Sell for what I paid and come home.

Don ya ought to pick her up and do a quick flip .

This is one of the better deals I have seen. A well equipt boat with the right gear...self tailers, Yanmar with 330 hours, dodger and Monitor vain. A guy (or Gal) could but it now, spend a few months doing a fluff and buff and be in Mexico for Christmas. all on $5k!

Oh well, "If 'if's' and 'buts' were candy and nuts...." But I also noticed that the seller has a dozen photos, yet not one of the ever-dangerous teak decking.
Just got email from owner and teak deck removed and all screw holes have been remediated with west epoxy . So the big problem is not a problem.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

With 30000$ there some good offers in the market today. Back in 2006 when I bough my boat you would by a day sailing boat a real cruiser was way more expensive. You might say that now everything is more expensive such as marinas mooring or just drop the anchor, but the boats are cheaper than ever.
In that way, after some investigation, I decided to sell my beloved boat for that price.
I’m just selling it because by now me and my wife should be home, but because of the COVID we spend to much time waiting. We are in Timor Leste now and preparing to go to Indonesia in a few day. So if you want to sail around Indonesia or around the world in a low budget project in a real cruiser this migh be the boat for you.

If interested check the link below:

You are probably going to get more exposure there.
