From the pics, seems like a pretty nice boat.
My guess is it is on craigslist because no brokerage wanted it.

Welcome to the boats under 30k thread. Where you'll find hundreds of Craigslist boat posts.

On a side note, I know nothing about the boat in the listing, just felt it met criteria.

Yeah. I think the founder of the thread was interested in highlighting boats that would be worth buying. Those Good Old Boats with a few years left in them.

My personal criteria are decent cruising boats, in decent shape, that do not require major work. I try not to post project boats, as there are so many of them, and they are a TRAP! (Ask me how I know, lol).

About brokers - they may not even take a boat that is below $30K. I can't say I blame them. There's an example in our boatyard - the owner is deceased, boat hasn't been launched in 10 years, old 38 foot Hughes with 6' draft and Atomic 4 gas engine in the bilge. Listed with a broker but asking too much, imo. So there it sits, accumulating bills for the estate.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Here's an Islander 36 in SF Bay asking $9K. Doesn't look neglected. I am not fond of inboard gas engnes, but some are:
