that engine is based on the kobuta z500 engine . A full rebuild kit including the sleeves and everything is just over 400.
The kbb on these boats is in the range of 7k with the stock a4. Appeal for the diesel and add at least 2500 value .
If you are interested its worth the email to enquire about it.

I'm not seeing a triton. I am seeing a screen grab from sailboatdata of the standard 29

I think it could be had for much less, BUT at that price, I believe a boat of this quality is still a good deal. This size makes owning and operating a boat very reasonable I believe.

That entire boat needs work, every part of it. But you can sail it now likely, do the engine first. Electrical, head, then as time goes on maybe redo the wood inside it looks so rough. Anyway, that layout is VERY nice just like one for sale here in Orange County.

It's hard to find in my experience but certainly a nice little layout.
