You're missing the point of the location. It's in Australia
. Everything is more expensive here than it is in the States.
And I agree, event that obviously well-cared for boat
would probably only be $40K in the States.
The last large tri sold
here was a 35' Hitchiker that went for $30K (needing work), and before that a Farrier Command 10 (mint) for $75K.
There was a smaller less well known one that went for $20K a cuppla months ago, but it needed major work
Personally, I'd pay $60-or so for the Crowther, but it will probably end up selling for $75-ish.
Rarity is a factor here. They just don't come on the market often.
Looking at the smaller ply Farrier TTs, they regular get $15K for a project
, and not much less for a major project
They'd be $2-5K in States for the same boat.
