Question Willard/Fales values?

Anyone know anything about these? Its either a Willard, or a Fales. If I remember the original ad correctly its a Fales. I know they are 30' pocket trawlers, but that's about as far as my knowledge goes. What are they worth in a restored status? And whats the history on them?

This one is a Fales yes.
Not worth much.
I’ve seen 30’ Willards advertised for 55,000 but most sell for 25 to 35,000. Depending hugely on condition. If I was to sell mine I’d be think’in bout $43,000 list sell for 38.

Whats the difference in Fales and Willards? As I've briefly read somewhere, if I recall correctly Fales were built from Willard molds? Were there many of them made?

Quite a number of Fales were build from Willard molds. At some point Fales extended (in the center) the hull to 32’ and I think 38’. The one in the pic above looks like a 38’. A wild guess at the number would be about 10.
That boat listed has seen some hard use. The “50hp” engine is actually 36hp at 3000rpm. But $5K is dirt cheap.

Did stretching the hull have any ill effects? And do you know did they do the strech in the middle?

My Fales 30 brought mid-30's two years ago, and was in near perfect condition.

I'm pretty sure this vessel is now docked at the Clearwater Beach Municipal Marina. They've shortened the mast but everything else looks identical. Nice boat.
