another westsail....

Sailboats For Sale — SAIL FAR YACHTS


i've been a sailboat-junkie for a while now and have to say that it does seem that there are soooooo many more gorgeous boats (of course, this is a personal taste thing) for sale at a decent price in North America (most often loaded too) than where i am in europe. i've yet to find ma bonheur over here...

in any case. this thread is so much fun!

thanks Steadman!

A 1978 Rafiki 37 for 30k asking.

Looks like it has some recent updates, or appears not to be a two years on the hard boat. Still, you would have to check it out yourself.
I love this boat! If I was looking for a serious blue water vessel this would be at the top of my list. Hard to believe boats of this quality can be had this cheap. And she's beautiful!

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Sorry that I did not post this one a few months back (I'm sure it's sold) but would love to hear if anyone here went to see it. Was on craigslist for $22 thousand and it is a S2 11c, Which Ive read good things about on a number of different points sailing, construction and so on. This particular boat the owner did a series of films on the different jobs he's done repairing it. And the owner was really good I would not want to do what he did , ( which makes me rethink buying any boat, I think if you watch you'll know what i mean) you can look it up on Youtube and the name of the channel or whatever they call it is "Down in the Islands".
Seeing what he did I would have loved to have it and a good price.

1982

Location = USA Wisconsin

Shallow Draft = 4 2

Yanmar 3 Cylinder Diesel

Asking Price = $11,000

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

Tartan 34C (the C just means "classic", the older model, not the newer 34) $14,000 cdn. Located east of Toronto Canada. The Tartan 34 is a decent bluewater boat with shallow draft. This one looks like its had the hull done really well. Also, I'm a yanmar fan. If only it had a tiller instead of a wheel (I like a tiller). Anyway, a lot of boat for not a lot of money.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details...equestSource=b

FROM THE AD:
A TARTAN 34C FOR SALE, LYING IN BRIGHTON ON. A LONG LIST OF EQUIPMENT COMES WITH THIS BOAT, INCLUDING CRADLE AND WINTER COVER. BOTTOM HAS BEEN REDONE HULL IN IMMACULATE CONDITION. CDN FUNDS. FOR VIEWING PLEASE CALL 613-391-9745 AND BOB WILL ANSWER.

Apparently BOB likes to yell, or has very little computer experience. Bob says his ad has generated a lot of local interest. But the ad remains posted. This is another ad without decent pictures.

Re: Boats Less Than $30K Recent Noteworthy Finds

I have found those two boats :

45' Samson Sea Deuce Ketch 1977 at 9995$ https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/boa...807975091.html

and

45' Sailboat VanDam Steel Ketch 1974 at 9000$
https://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee...801011494.html

What do you think of those two boats? Worth it or not?

The low price on both of them makes me wonder. The first one, what is it? Ferrocement? Steel? Wood? Any of those I'd have to have a really good look at. And the second, steel hull, would have to be thoroughly scrutinized too.
