Harsh crowd here.
Spoilt for choice obviously.

Forget about the asking price. Call a bank and ask them what they would loan you to buy that boat. If you send them the listing link I doubt you would ever hear back from them. Maybe they would underwrite the loan with a 200% down payment and a 300% insurance policy. I am sorry. There isn't a lot of there there.

What makes you say the above?
I have seen this boat from the exterior only. I had a boat just down river from it.. the exterior looked fine, work boat style .. you bet. But from what I recall I would have loved to given it some love. The e.r. in the pics looks ok.. have see a number of boats with laundry on the ER. What's wrong with residential appliances??. Nordhavn uses some.. lots of yachts have " house" appliances. Remember it's a $375k 60' boat.. ya'll need to quit being so snobby

I like it. Sure, there's a few improvements that could be done on the interior. Not that it looks like a poor build, its just built for purpose over style.

Here's another similar boat but older. Same interior designer by the looks of it.

Nice bones, but... Interior needs a major redesign. Take it down to bare steel and start from scratch.

I like it. I agree with Boomerang, wouldn't choose that interior but certainly could live with it easily. I tend to like the workboat finish.

Bigfish is probably correct, this can be had for probably a lot less than asking price. I wonder what the back story is? under 200 hrs..

Amazing

Why don't you call the broker or you would rather hear from those "that have only an opinion"?

Most builders will put equipment on the boat before they close it in. I’ve built a few boats an all have been done that way, the problem comes when you have to remove the item. A friend took delivery of a new Bertram and the engine developed a problem within 20 hours, the deck had to be cut and removed to pull the engine. He wasn’t happy.

This is a rough crowd. Perhaps haven't been around work boats?

I like the boat. Looks heavy built to withstand heavy weather. If I wanted a boat of that size I would give it a good look over. All pictures show any boat better than it actually is from my experiences. I've look at a lot of vessels and have never seen one that looked better than the pictures.

The only thing I would immediately change is the ground gear. Pretty small winch and rode for a vessel that size. Some of the wiring/panels/switches looks a bit on the cheap side too but I really like the engine room. It looks professionally done to reasonable standards.

It is more of a work boat design than yacht design which I like too. Perhaps reflected in the price? A good surveyor that is knowledgeable in steel boats would be a must. This size and especially type of boat has a limited market. Any offer should factor in resale value and challenges.

Curiosity is getting the better of me! Anyone local know the deal?

The specifications and equipment look great plus a virtually new engine. Why not just go see it? At $375,000 if the owner’s age is really the reason for the sale, it would be a great deal

The only thing I can add to this discussion is that from the backgrounds in some of the photos it is located somewhere on the Multnomah Channel between Portland and Scappoose. And I'd wonder about the expired registeration for 6 years.

Probably the same way ours came in, during the build stage.

Surgery will be required on the cockpit BH/door sill on ours to get old one out and new one in.
