I've probably looked at that boat on yacht world at least 10 times and for the life of me I cannot figure out why that thing hasn't sold yet.

If I had a place to put it I would buy it but at 80' I can't even get it in my river I don't think.

Needs well over 100K worth of work to get it to where I would be comfortable. I'll Pass.

I went to the yachtworld listing, and under "View Full Specifications" there was nothing apart from a disclaimer.

Conclusion? The boat isn't really for sale. If it was, then a bit of effort might be taken to fill in the default headings in the listing.

Mark, sorry, but you are doing yourself a serious disservice with this one and I am really surprised. Sure, you probably sent the owner a listing form to fill out and he was unable or unwilling to do it. But some of the poor impression ends up on you as well.

I just looked and there a over 90 pictures. I've seen this boat in person. Yes, tons of possibilities, but also a ton of work.

That's what I was thinking, the interior is empty and what is there is done in cheap ugly office decor.
Sorry Mark, this one's gonna sit a while.

I'm thinking about the potential of liveaboard for 2 years and restore her as you find the time.

If she floats, can be moved and has a good shore power setup/genset I don't see why it would HAVE to cost 200k to bring up to snuff.

For the right person they could work on it/flip it and make 6 figures on the sale... eventually.

Does that right person have 179k or can qualify for 179k? That's the $179,000 question. I'd be pitching this one to marina's/boatyards.

I was being conservative.

This is just too much of a project. Why not just commission a build at the price this will wind up costing?

The specs are on the first page of the listing. Read all the way through the first page on listings before you hit the specs. The specs format in YW doesn't really allow for this type of vessel.

Because a brand new 89' yacht would cost many millions. This boat can be finished out by cabinet makers and carpenters not a boat yard. I think a fair number is 200k to finish her quite nicely if you keep an open floor plan.

I couldn't agree more. The boat is a huge open canvas with almost no hours on the engines or genset. For 149K she's being sold at close to scrap value. If I wasn't in the middle of flipping a condo I would buy her in a heart beat.

I agree. Wonder if the pressure is low and the guy dosn't know to inflate to max for a really big load. Sooo much overhang fwd there will be extreme pressures in the fwd straps at the chines and keel

That thing should be hauled on a marine railway.
