Your link wasn't quite complete:
https://www.yachtworld.com/boats/199...dard%20listing

Shame to see it having met such a fate. The keel took a beating, but the prop strut getting bashed in certainly sealed it.

It might be a great project for somebody, but at about 25% asking price. They really must be joking about the price. Shame about the boat.

Cheers, Bill

Greetings,
Mr. M. "They really must be joking about the price." Asking $100K+? That's the first thing I thought as well. One could easily be buying scrap. Were the engines pickled ASAP? Many, many questions.

A great time to re-power out of 2-cycle Detroits.

If this boat could be bought for $15k, it appears nearly every system would need replacement. How much would that cost? It seems to me that a 65 ft boat like this in good working condition could be had for less than all the repairs dollars you'd need for the sunk boat. Am I off base?

Greetings,
Mr. MP. "Am I off base?" NOT in my opinion. I think every piece and part of that boat would have to be inspected and refurbished/repaired or replaced. Great if you're 21 years old, have unlimited funds and are keen to take on project of that size. To have the same done in a yard? Hahahaha...Read the "unlimited funds" part again.

I am sorry for the loss of his boat. I do hope no one was hurt.

I totally agree.....
Total and Constructive loss. No doubt, he has settled with his insurance company and has started hunting his next boat.

We know where the big holes are but, you dont know where the significant spider cracks are.

There is much to be said about a trawler and its protected running gear.

I am sorry but, I would not take that boat if he paid me. Right now the owner/insurance company are desperate. If he cant find a buyer, he or his insurance company will have to pay LOTS to dispose of the hull etc.

This damage will follow the boat's history.

Broker states "The engines and generators will most-likely need replacing."
The boat is scrap.

I would pay them not to give me the boat. It could easily run 200 to 400K to rebuild it and you still would have a questionable boat. Buy one in good condition and be done. I would not touch this at any price and I love working on boats.

Totally agree, and you're the expert in rebuilding stuff. The problems and money pit would go on forever.

Well had this thing simply sunk into a sand or mud bottom with no structural damage, would it be salvage-able or still a mess? But for the structural issues that is a nice boat.

One can only imagine what's possibly growing inside that boat that's been wet inside.

Owners or their insurance company should be requesting quotes for the boat's scrapping.
