64' Vantare For Sale (yeah... not a trawler)

Asking $469k.* It's the only 1990 Vantare for sale on the west coast, and is a perfect vessel for coastal cruising, especially up in the San Juans.* They're quite popular up in the PNW.

It's being handled by a very reputable broker, and the YW listing (along with all equipment) can be found here.* The vessel is held in an LLC, and the right deal can include the LLC.

Drop me a PM if you wish to discuss details.

Chuck

64' Vantare For Sale (yeah... not a trawler)

Thanks John... we're trying.* The wife is doing well, and we have a couple of irons in the fire.* We're just hoping one (or more) will soon pop.* The unfortunate thing is I've had to initiate legal proceedings to collect the last 120 days of receivables my client owed me (over $1mm).* That has put a huge dent in my working capital after paying out over a dozen severance packages, taxes, COBRA, legal fees, etc.

So... nobody in this forum wants to buy my boat?* Come on... make me an offer I can't refuse

Chuck,

Nobody "wants" to buy your boat? *Believe me, you've got people drooling all over their collective keyboards. Great shots of your little ship.


KMA's a beautiful, really beautiful boat, and the care you've given her is very evident. *Best of luck with the sale, and really glad to hear the wife's doing well. * That's really what's important anyway.

Hey Chuck are you moving to another boat if and when you sell, or what? What other boat could you go to after this one, it's a pretty hard act to follow. Makes my house seem cramped and a bit tacky, let alone my boat.

RE: 64' Vantare For Sale (yeah... not a trawler)

All,

We're probably going to fire sale the boat at the Newport Boat Show in April.* My CPA is working out the short sale details with the bank as I write this.* I'm willing to bet somebody can steal it for under $400k.* Of course, for that price, it's "as-is, where is".

As far as a replacement goes, it all depends if we can collect on the big receivable.* Right now, I'm look at something like this.* They're asking way too much money, and I can't afford it now... but I can still dream.

Just get ya a Defever 49 PH if you like that one. I know they are not steel but other than that, very similar boats.

64' Vantare For Sale (yeah... not a trawler)

And if you like that, you may like this one too http://tinyurl.com/yj9am3r

I think this is a boat I specifically went to see at Solomon's TrawlerFest a few years back.* I lusted after it but wasn't really in the market for something like this just yet.* Then I saw it sold and was transported to the PNW to be put in charter service.

Looks like the price went up substantially, almost double.* Or, I may be confusing this with another vessel entirely.* So many nice boats, so little time or $.

Still got it. Asking price dropped to $399k, but can be had for considerably less. This thing goes back to the bank in 45-60 days, so don't wait too long.

Chuck,

Although I'm happy for you and the sale, I'm really sorry to see the boat go. Talk about a beautiful yacht....WOW!


Hopefully you'll still be on this site and another vessel will be in your slip eventually. I know with the new business you'll be preoccupied, but once you get salt water in your blood........!


Congrats again!

RE: 64' Vantare For Sale (yeah... not a trawler)

Mike,

The saying about the 2 happiest days in a man's life is true.* It's a relief to be out from under it... at least financially.* Now I get to negotiate the back end of the short sale with the bank.* I'm not looking forward to that

I'll still hang around the site.* I don't make friends easily, and I consider all of you my friends.* You all put up with my BS, and aren't afraid to call me on it.

Is there another boat in my future?* Probably not.* We've migrated inland, and I've been eyeballing small land yachts for hauling the grandbaby cross country to show her this great land of ours while it's still here to see.* I can't wait to see her face the first time she sees the Grand Canyon, Yosemite and Yellowstone, to name but a few places that are on the future agenda.

Life is still an adventure, even off the water.
