No bidders on the 30' Willard at 7k

If someone wants a 73 Willard* Horizon motorsailer in Slidell LA.* The owners e-mail is svbanco@yahoo.com**** Looks like a nice managable project.

RE: No bidders on the 30' Willard at 7k

A friend of mine wants to take a look at this vessel. I will give him the contact info. Any suggestions of what to look for on this style vessel? I will probably go with him to inspect it.

RE: No bidders on the 30' Willard at 7k

All Know is what the owner said on e-bay.** He had been working on it and ran out of funds. He said contact him and he will tell you more. He said the engine runs. The starting bid was 7k no reserve and no bids, so I guess he would take 7 or less.* Boat is on the hard. I posted a pic on the Willard on e-bay posting.* If you want to know more about these boats check with Nomadwilly on this forum he has a different model but simular size.*** Good Luck -this classic would be a great boat to own without spending a fortune.** JEP

RE: No bidders on the 30' Willard at 7k

Our other moderator has a Willard like the e-bay boat**** ..a Fales 30 but basically the same boat. Concrete ballast can be a big problem. The Willard's were cored w 3/4" plywood (deck and house) and can be the same kind on problem as in other plastic boats but the wet ply lasts lots longer than bulsa and some other coring materials. I like to talk boats so e-mail me a private msg w your phone # and I'll tell you what I can.

RE: No bidders on the 30' Willard at 7k

I Live in Slidell, went to look at the Willard. A blister job has been started with about 3/4 of the botton gelcoat sanded off. All of the hardware is removed from the boat. The mast is still up but without any sails. Did not look inside the boat. Still could be a good project boat for the price if you don't mind completing the epoxy botton and painting sides and topsides both.

The boat looks like the blue hull Motorsailer in the Trawler Forum Logo.

Eric,
I will shoot you my # tonight when I get home. If the boat is still available we are planning to look at it next Wednesday.
Mel,
What scared you away from her?

I wasn't scared of the project. The boat just wasn't the right fit for me at this time. I would love to own a small Willard in the future, but I'll stay with my 44' Pilothouse at this time.
