What Am I Missing Here?

Is this a deal of a lifetime or am I oblivious to something others can see?

Clearly marked down significantly due to the anchor.

Interesting to note, under personal items that didn't go with the boat was a 2800 watt heart inverter, weird. The other item that caught my idea was a 60 gallon holding tank for a 3 stateroom 3 head boat. Also, some very dated electronics.

The dated electronics replacement is $25K. Your still way below $350K

We've been looking at the same boat. Almost called to make an appointment to see it but got sidetracked with life stuff. Dated electronics are easy enough to fix and don't have to break the bank. Looks like a nice boat. Very comfortable size for a couple or a small family. Let us know if you actually go see it.

We just purchased a 2002 37’ Nordic Tug. Wish I had seen this first.

Not saying that it isn’t a good deal but noticed it’s lean on accessories. No stabilizer, no thruster, no A/C. First picture looks like a different boat from the rest of the pictures.

Down in the corner of the first picture it does state “Sister Ship”.

Looks like a big old boat that will probably need lots of updates/repairs to me. And it’s going to wallow around in rough seas. So $220k seems cheap?

When they start with a photo of a sister ship, they've lost me completely.

As to what you're missing, other than the things already pointed out, could be much more. Boat could be a hurricane boat. No way to know without seeing it and checking it out. Just keep in mind, "When it sounds too good to be true, it probably is."

- reverse cycle AC with digital controls
- water maker
- twin gensets
- iso transformer
- dinghy w/50hp
etc

If you're interested, call. Brokers are generally pretty good about saying why the boat is priced out of line with others in the market.

Sister ship in first picture. I wonder why? The other pics look ok.

At least one of the pics shows the actual "for sale" boat's name on the transom. Maybe only the first pic is a sister...

It could well be a deal...only a survey would uncover any undisclosed nightmares.

Sure, she looks dated, and most new owners would likely want to replace some electronics, plumbing fixtures, etc. But she also looks well maintained. It's just a guess but I'd say that the couple who own her have done so for a long time...maybe the original owners...and that they're aging out of her.

Gulf Breeze is in an area of the country that's pretty economically depressed. This could indeed be a great deal for someone.

Caveat emptor, of course....

My sympathies. This is exactly why I refused to look at any online boat for about 6 months after our purchase. I KNEW, guaranteed, I would find cheaper/newer/better. At least online that is. With no personal visit or survey to find "the truth" they would remain perfect or better than what I bought in my mind for a long time.

Sabre - P'cola is economically depressed? I think that would come as a surprise to the people I know over there.
