Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

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 and engine 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!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Sandcrab,

Good to see you here. I don't look in very often any more.

Regarding the Nautitec. https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/b...599425168.html

Around 10 years ago I was in the Schooner Creek boat yard in Portland talking to Steve, the yard owner. He showed me a Nautitec under a tent, (I think it was a 47 but may have been a 44) that a guy had just brought in to dry out. IIRC it had hundreds of small holes drilled in it in order to dry the core material in the hull. I wonder if this is the same one. If so it must be dry by now..... Drop by NWMA sometime.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Regarding the moving costs for the 45" Simpson trimaran ...
The boat is in a low spot on the property which means a platform needs to be built in order for the crane in to make the lift. A few trees will have to be cut down in order to clear the way for the crane. It will then be loaded onto trailer for a 6 mile trip on Highway 128 ( near Boston) to where it can be launched. Being 30 feet wide on the trailer requires travel after midnight with a police escort of four cruisers. Oh yeah, a few road signs will have to come down along the route. Anyone who knows something about crane hire and boat transport will not dispute the costs involved. The family just wants the boat to be finished. If I was 20 years younger I would own it already.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

So are they saying the boat is basically "free to a good home" and the $25K is for the trucking company to move it?

Or do they want $25K PLUS the cost of moving it?

In which case, it's not such a bargain....

Yes, they want the $25K to cover the cost of moving the boat and that's it. And FYI, someone previously made the assumption that the boat was made out of plywood - this is incorrect. The boat is cold molded.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Yeah I'd guessed that from the underwater shape - no chines. Do they know what timber was used for the hull?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Gilbert Caroff (now deceased) was a well known yacht designer back in the day although he was mostly known for his steel and aluminum monos. This is the first cat that I've seen by him. After some research I found that he designed a line of Lazzi cats and this might be the L1450.

GILBERT CAROFF-DUFLOS - ARCHITECTURE NAVALE


I have no info on the builder and wonder if that is an epoxy boat?
