According to the latest estimates I can find online, a 28ft trimaran
built fomr ply/epoxy/glass would cost $50K to put on the water
via a home build.
In other words, given the inclusions on the 45ft "Simpson" it's probably a steal, even though it still needs at least $20-30K of work
to get on the water
and complete the fitout.
From the pics on craigslist it appears the witring has been done, stove
installed, with only wind instruments
and nav instruments
still to install.
No mention of sail wardrobe, so guess they're not yet made, so there's $20K right there.
Would ideally suit someone contemplating building or restoring an older ply tri, but in this case, a much more modern design.
Given that it's not painted inside, the ply should all be easily visible to check for rot
, so if Walter Greene has looked at it he would have found anything wrong.
If I had the cash and didn't have a crook back, I'd be all over this one!
