Well, what do you expect? It seems intended to be a blue-water, trans-oceanic boat.

Concur!

Looks like the older Nordhavn 62s have a draft in the 6' - 6.5' range. Seems like a big jump to 8'.

Just to put this boat in perspective, two of Columbus' ships were about this size and smaller. They had about the same draft.

I would surely like to get Delfin's opinion on this boat.

80 grand for a 30' 1974 boat may be a lot of fun for the money... but it sure isn't a lot of BOAT for the money!

Exactly!

I fell in love with a Vashon Trawler that the owner lavished money upon. He and I could not come to terms as we where miles apart price wise. A year later he sold it to a member of this forum for about the price I was willing to go.

Older, well found 30' Willard's are nice and something to be proud of but...

There has to be a story behind this boat. It looks like a great deal. Just wonder why so lightly used, and why such a good price. Yes, it looks tempting.

If anyone is truly interested in a DD, one already circumnavigated and in true "sail-away" condition, check out "Doramac".

Trawler for Sale

She is a truly fine boat.

Amadeus look like a case of a person of means constructing their dream but once built realized they or a loved one lacked the sea legs or desire. I wonder how often that happens with some of the other brands? Such as Nordhavn, Selene and Krogen.

CP-I saw somewhat of an answer to your question a few weeks ago. It should be taken with a grain of salt as it covers ony a single point in time and it was given out by one of the builders involved, but here it is: As a % of boats registered-Krogen had the lowest % of boats on the used market, Nordhavn was next and Selene had the highest %. Not sure what that says about your questions, but there it is.

Love it! Strong, high railings, wide 360-degree decks, although the flying bridge is unnecessary, and I can't afford it.
