You'll spend $600K on a boat but only $5K (00.8%) as a finder's fee? I wish you well.

The boat is worth, maybe, up to one dollar if one is creative/mechanical/electronic/hard-working. And after spending a half million to refit the boat, you'll lose 75% on resale.

Greetings,
For $85K you could do an awful lot with what's left of your $600K. 10 berths. LOTS of room!

Just sayin'.....
A couple more but larger size...

The first one is a project boat. Pretty cool boat, but needs lots of work and a bit too big.

The 2nd is also too big and too shippy.

The 3rd I love (of course), but again the size would be insane for me.

I haven't seen any of these before though, thanks for helping! Let me know if you spot anything else

$5,000 is more than fair for an NON licensed person to supply information leading to a purchase. The lady has been looking for quite awhile.

...a few canal boat threads

Somehow the direct link to these 2 specific designs is not available,...rather you have to go to their website and scroll along the left side of the page until you see one of these two drawings, then click on them....

You need to start looking more north for the size and kind of boat you are looking for. Also start looking at bigger boats sites/magazines. I hate to say it but Trawler Forum and Cruise & Sail are 95%/mostly small boats. Once you get above 60+ ft you are in a different size/class of boat.

You are sort of between small pleasure boat and larger/mega yachts. There is a lot of boats advertized and brokers that do not list on yacht world. Most of the boat will be big and over your budgets. In the larger mega yachts you are consider the low end and in the small pleasure boat you are considered the upper end. Common names are Alaskan, Grand Alaska, Broward, Berger, Ocean Alexander, Choy lee, Hatteras, Northern Marine, Nordhavn, West marine, Pacific Marine, Delta, Viking, Sonship, to mention a few.

For what itís worth my wife favorite boat is the 65 ft Pacific Marine and used boats are starting to come down into your price range. Several years ago she almost bought one! Aim a little higher and become familiar with the names. My favorite is the Northern Marine and Delta and some of the older ones are also coming down into you price range.

You would be surprised at the amount of room availabe on a catamaran.

A good friend of mine ownes this, and several weeks ago said he might be considering selling her as he has moved ashore into a house. I'd like to be able to afford it, but its beyond my means.

See some pictures here

PS: Don't be confused by the title (and dollars) of that subject thread. This cat is within your price range. And its upkeep will be FAR less than you might be spending on some other big boats you have been considering.

Yup Yup Yup!

I don't know of an insuring company (a legitimate marine insurer) that will not require a full time skipper for at least the first year.

Greetings,
From the dregs of my recollection, Ms. GG (who seems to have done her homework) has taken all of the above into consideration (crew/capt. etc.). I suspect the only thing holding her and her brood back is the right boat. Hence a $5K "reward" to re-stimulate interest and it appears to be working quite well. Best of success Ms. GG.

I've always wanted to ask seeing as how I have as much experience with 70' boats as GG currently does.

Is that full time skipper requirement only when leaving the dock? Or full time for one calendar year regardless of your travel plans?
