That's the shiznits, make sure you get a survey. Not a lot of space around that engine

I like it, clean looking lot of space for a smaller trawler. 15 k not bad, if you don't like it you could sell it and probably break even

Haulout and a survey will cost perhaps say $900-$1,500 range for that boat. Are you prepared to walk away from it after spending that kind of money?

Btw that's in addition to the purchase price you negotiate with the seller.

Having spent my life in the industry, I worry about a deal that looks too good to be true. That is a rather low price. But the boat looks good in these pictures. Be sure to get a good survey from a surveyor who knows wood boats. Any idea how many hours are on that Perkins? It is an old engine and if it has to be replaced, that is a big expense.

Gut feeling here,
Appears to be an odd design. A bit tall but appearing to be in good shape. I've seen other boats this tall but not very many. The pics are'nt great so may have a good responsible CG and hull design. But much more likely not than the average boat. I'd be wanting to learn about the design and the designer's reputation. Other boats designed by him and their reputation.

The two big if's .... Design and hull condition.

Craig's survey numbers could be high. Depends on who and where.

Hull not planked? Plywood? Strip built? Is it in fresh water now or spent most of its life in fresh? Could be an issue if so. I agree its a neat looking boat.

I would check her out well along with a surveyor. If it's meant to be you will know it.

I would pay for a walk through inspection first. It looks OK in pictures and seems pretty squared away but a quick look by a trained eye could save you the expense of a full blown inspection if it has serious warts. Hard to go wrong at that price point if it is decent. Find out if it is currently insured. Could spoil your plans if you cannot at least buy liability coverage.
