Re: Thoughts about a 30 years old boat

Resale value may not be the primary reason to buy, but it should also not be the least important at least for ordinary humans who plan for a life after cruising.

I think modern cats hold their value quite well as long as they are close to what is promised by recent designs. Once their design features are superseeded for a couple of years, they start to just look "old" and loose big time.
Agree with each single word.
I used to like privileges and catanas, the old designs. Then they started with the new designs and didn't like the changes, then got used to the new ones. Then more innovation and lines. Now when it happen I see an old privilege or an old catana I just see old, surpassed vessels. Maybe bombshells if in the wrong hands.
