I've been watching this one. When it was first advertised it was in New Brunswick, Canada. Not sure why the registration on the hull is from Connecticut, could be an old photo or it was never imported into Canada?

If I remember correctly, those in the US and interested in this boat may have a challenge with this deal. Boats can come across the border without too much trouble, but registering the trailer might be impossible. Due diligence is advisable!

Yes, that is my experience as well.

Wow. That's cheap. A ply/epoxy Farrier TT720 sold here for AUS$13K after two days on the market. I counted them.

This one is cheaper still and has been on the market for months.

Yeah, but if you look at the stats, that ad was last updated in September 2016 - sold long ago but ad not taken down.

The eBay ad says "Register in the US, trailer and boat". Means registered?

I looked back through the ebay history. Seller has been dropping price $2k every couple of weeks, then this time dropped $5k .. because of season no doubt.

What is it worth just for parts and accessories?

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

That Edel is like a "red-headed step child" because you have to love the design. It's a partial open bridgedeck with a pod that is not connected to the hulls. You have to go outside to go inside. Visualize this in stormy weather. It's not for me but if you are good with it then enjoy.

Actually, the Edel has some great virtues. I built a 30' facsimile and found the trench between the main cabin and the hulls, on either side, made for great security when going forward to perform sail changes at the mast in even the nastiest of weather. Having total separation of the hulls also afforded a greater sense of privacy, as well. The cockpit/helm positions on my boat had no blind spots. Finally, the configuration lends itself to a lighter build, leading to slightly better performance.

Having owned an Edel 43 I agree with what you say. Also the Edel is based on 3 large aluminum beams holding the hulls together. This allows the hulls to move independently and makes for a great motion through the seas. Though the Edel 43 offers 4 queen sized bunks and a salon that could easily seat 8 it probably wouldn’t be the choice for the majority of the buyers in the catamaran market today.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

well, I have no problems with the 3 separate quarters...esp. for sub & tropical living...might not be ideal for the PNW...actually, I would be pretty happy with the open bridgedeck version too...

I have the Edel 35 and having the 43 with a real bridgedeck cabin would be nice...funny, I can't find any sailing videos of the 43...many of the 35, I guess since there are more 35's that might explain that...SMJ has stated it's a pretty good sailing boat...would you say it's as spirited as the 35? Just curious...cheers!

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

Multi-hulls, are you in the PNW?
That E43 was possibly a good value. There is one on YW but it's set up more for day charters. The price is now at $115,000 and it keeps dropping.
There's a similar design for sale up here. It's 56' and the price is dropping on that one too.
Today I'll be going out in My friends Mac26M but unfortunately the winds are supposed to be light so we might just motor. He is just done with chemo so a day on the water is a good day. We will head over to the Rock the Dock grill in Tacoma for lunch. They are on the dock (well duh) and it's free to tie up. That 56' is just past there so I have seen it from 10' feet away. It's "interesting".
Last weekend I got a tour of a Maine Cat 38. It was the actual boat for the catamaran Boat of the Year award this year. Very cool. Didn't get to sail though.


Cheers yall
