Good day. I am looking at a Macintosh 47 here in the San Francisco Bay and was looking for information on this boat. I cant find much. What kind of daily runs do you get on passage? Is the draft over 7 feet? Is the hull solid GPR or is it foam cored? Any other help you may offer up would be very much appreciated.
Hey! Thought I would separate this question from the posting about the Hylas or Stevens 47. Can you share what your original, ridiculous offer was? Either percentage less than asking price or thousands saved? What was the asking? What was the actual sold price? Is this for your current boat?
I keep hearing some say we offered $100K less than asking and it was accepted but are these just for boats that are selling for $400K+ or even a boat offered at $140K. I haven't found a good 'bible' like the old NADA or old Kelly Blue Book to guide me in what a boat might actually be sold for so looking for all the insight I can get.
I'm a Navy guy living in Corpus Christi for at least a few months and I'm investigating the sailing scene here. I came from Annapolis where I did a lot of racing and I raced offshore in college and I'm really missing being on the water. You seem like the resident expert so I was hoping you could give me the lay of the land or possibly some good resouces? Thanks so much!
I'm a new member and i saw one of your posts. i was thinking of cruising Belize and i saw where you had asked 'why'? i've done a fair bit of sailing in the Caribbean and about 5 years in the Pacific. what are your thoughts on Belize? thanks very much, Kirk
Looks like we'll be coming home sooner than we thought," wrote Mike and Cindy Miller in an email to friends last week. The Tacoma, WA-based couple had to abandon their McIntosh 47 Airwego on May 13 after she was driven up on a Samoan reef. As they explain, "We were entering a narrow pass through the reef on Savai'i, when we hit bottom and were picked up by huge sea swells and driven farther onto the reef. Needless to say, our boat is a total loss."
