Willard on Craigslist BC

Anyone need a Willard motorsailer? Seems like it would be a great deal, particularly with the US/Canadian exchange rate. Not mine just an information post.

A Willard Vega Horizon 30.

With new tanks and nearly new Kabota engine this is a good deal for someone.
This isn't the 47hp all cast iron Kabota that I wanted back in 06 but any Kabota is very good.
These Horizons are known among Willard people as the most seaworthy of 30' Willards. Probably because of the minimal windage from the low cabin.
I always advise friends to look for boats that have been repowered and retanked for fuel. Well guys here it is.

I really like this Willard. I don't know that I could handle the speed that you would have to cruise. I am fine with 7 or 8 knots but I am not sure if anything over 5 or 6 knots is feasible. Funny how a couple of knots makes a big difference.

Came close to buying that boat, Hobo, about 12-13 years ago. Couldn't get a slip big enough for her at the time.

Glad to see she is still around and looking good.
