Clearly a scam! If your cousin was actually a price he would have told you about his royal Nigerian heritage.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I got ahead of myself multitasking looking at a few boats on different pages plus I am a newbie to this site and forums in general. I made a mistake, need to slow down a bit.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Mariner 31
___________________________

Steady's Notes

The photos of the boat show a very nice looking boat, that appears exemplary for this model. This boat was owned by a CF Member and previously advertised in the CF Boats for Sale classifieds section. Asking Price at that time was $20K.

The photos show the love and care and very nice refit done by the previous owner (details I viewed on his blog).

While this particular boat has sold recently, I think this is such a good example that it may help someone looking for a similar boat in the future.

I am sharing it here because this model of boat fits this thread's concept and because the Mariner boats are occasionally seen for sale.

I will let the photos speak for themselves. Photos used with permission of the owner (CF Member).

I like what I see in the photos.

Sailboat Data says:
"The MARINER 31 was the first fiberglass hull built by Far East Yachts. The decks and cabintrunk were of plywood covered with fiberglass.
Similar to MARINER 32 and FUJI 32."

My Disclaimers and Requests

I have no financial or other connection to this boat or the seller.
I have not seen this boat in person, nor have I sailed on it.
As with any boat, it is a good idea to research the design to learn about how they sail, common problems and owner opinions.
As with any boat, it is smart to have a qualified yacht surveyor perform a survey of the boat to assess its condition.
I am posting this to help others find boats. This one caught my eye, and I hope this thread helps others find a good fit for them.
I hope this thread proves helpful to CF Members. If so, let me know, as it is nice to know the time spent on it has helped others.
IF you purchase this boat, let me know (a PM would be OK).
IF you purchase this boat, I would enjoy seeing it, or going for a sail on it, if I am ever in your area. Or, if you own a similar or sister boat send me a PM. I enjoy sailing on a wide variety of boats and would like to get some time on many designs, including this one.

Glad you got it figured out.

Yes when it comes to buying a boat, measure twice cut once.

Because you may discover that you cut it off twice and it's still too short.

Good find!

I did some previous research on this model and will post a full profile now. Thanks for bringing the linked one to my attention and adding this to the mix here, as it is priced relatively low and could be a good fit for a CF member.

Seems underpriced, the listing describes the aggressive price as being due to needed maintenance. but doesn't sound too bad; deck leaks, possible soft spots, cabin sole, exhaust hose and a squirrel came aboard and did some damage.
That could be a great cruiser for that price.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Willard 8 Ton World Cruiser
___________________________

Steady's Notes

This William Crealock designed double ender will likely appeal to a cruiser looking for a smaller "blue water boat" styled on more traditional (1970s concepts) lines. Crealock placed emphasis on seaworthy safety over speed.

Noteworthy are:
1. Double ended hull design, 30 feet LOD
2. Full keel, cast iron.
3. Bowsprit (about 5'), adds to marina expense.
4. Heavier displacement (may be a slow boat).
5. Shallow Draft = 4' 8"
6. Good Headroom = 6' 4"
7. Designed as a Cutter Rig
8. Reported as "heavy fiberglass hull"
9. The name includes the words "8 Ton" and that is explained below in comments by an owner.
10. May be rather slow (est. 5-6 knots), see the SA/D. One owner reported he never saw 8 knots, which is not surprising.

The photos of the boat I saw (linked below) show a nice looking boat, in what appears to be good condition. As with any boat, a survey is a good idea. Caveat Emptor.

I like what I see in the photos. There are more photos showing the interior and cockpit and details on the linked page.

Comments by one owner.

“Taller guests are surprised by the 6′ 4″ standing headroom inside. The keel is bolted and glassed in protecting your running gear. The romantically named “8-Ton” refers to the storage capacity rather than the actual weight of the vessel. Its displacement is 17,000 lbs. including 6,500 lbs. of ballast in the keel.”

I definitely agree with that. The engine only had 1000 hours? Says it was professionally maintained though with records.
lots of positives in that boat.

Sounds like a very cool boat, but steel from '76 and at that price? Really seems too good to be true.

I was looking at steel boats that size in Florida last year and that is a phenomenal list price, especially for a professionally built boat. I looked at boats listed for $40k that were unabashed 'projects' and sold for more than $20k. Almost want to borrow a car and drive out their to look at this thing!

Reviewing the pictures: there is water damage to the wood around the companionway and at least one of the bulkheads is delaminating. Some black spots on the floor, so she's definitely had water inside, probably fresh. Wonder what the bilge looks like...
