Kelsall 34' Cat $1500 in Fla.

Yup more updates.
The boat was holed but the price seems fair considering.

Why does that make it a scam? When I sold my last boat I had it listed on four different platforms...

Of course any prospective buyer should do their due diligence and check ownership / title, any liens, get a survey, etc.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

A brief description of the vessel including price would be nice for those of us who can't access FB.

The original listing has been flagged for removal. Guess the cheap price may have drummed up some interest.

I was curious as I had seen the CL listing provided by Sand Crab in 2017 and later and watched the price fall from USD129 to USD79 approx. The photos in the listing were identical to those in the YW listing I saw in 2017. So, I responded to the CL listing two days before it was flagged and removed. The first response simply said I should contact the sender at a personal address. Here is the second response I received via email:
"
Re: 1991 Privilege 39 Catamaran - $25,000

to me








Hi,
The Privilege Catamaran is still available. It is in a good condition, no scratches, no damages and I have the clean title in hand. I'm selling it at this final price $25,000 because my husband passed away 2 months ago (he had a heart attack) and I want to sell it asap. Boat is in Wisconsin and i had prearranged the deal with American Shippers Line so my presence isn't necessary. They won't give me any money until you receive and test the boat. It is at the shipping company, ready to be delivered. The shipping cost is included in the selling price! You got 5 days to test it and inspect. So if you want to make this deal I need the following details from you:-full name-shipping address-phone number. Once I got all the details, I will forward them to eBay and they will proceed with the order. They'll email you with all the information that you need to complete this deal and also they will confirm that the deal is conducted through them and I'm a legitimate seller. Waiting for your email with the requested details. "


Several red flags: When received, the first email time sent was GMT+8, so perhaps came via west coast. Condition in CL was "excellent" , but when I requested recent photos, all I received were from the original YW 2017 listing. Also, no listing on ebay. And several other flags.



The text of the msg above reminds me of those promises to share inheritance of Nigerian prince.


Now, I have previously seen the project boat also on CL for USD98K, and I think it might be a different boat, though not sure. No matter; may as well be same scam with different approach.

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

The first red flag for me would have been that they "arranged" for shipping a cat with a 21' beam.
The shipping scam is as old as CL .

Re: Cheap Multis and Projects

1) (price) too good to be true- probably scam

2)staged photos but cheap/project, only a couple seemingly "random" photos - could be old pics etc but more likely scam. Also you can look for out of place tree species or etc based on location.

3)posted in multiple cities (same platform not different sites in this case) NOT cities next to each other, all posted at the same time - obvious scam. Quite obvious with cl notifications or searchtempest etc.

4)no actual location or boatyard etc mentioned.

Most/many of the cl/etc scams have ad text copied from a real ad from the past, so it's not the text it's self but other clues. Often the text will be cut off short/incomplete, though. No need to email them just in case it might be real, hit the flag button & move on
