Ready for the Loop for 30K

Adagio our 1983 Island Gypsy has just completed an enjoyable 3000mi trip to South Florida and back and is ready to go Again. This is a dry, comfortable couples cruiser, just bring your stuff and go. Yes there is no work required on her.

The back story is about six weeks ago we met a couple in Oriental NC on our return trip to NJ and the bottom line is we struck a deal and sold them the boat. We signed an agreement of sale and took a deposit. Gave them an hour long sea trial. They wanted to survey and close the boat in NJ as they had ties to that area. So we brought her home. Many emails and phone calls from our buyer insured their interest in our boat. They even drove from NC to Annapolis to visit us and Adagio again. Much happiness and excitement was expressed about their new boat. The survey and short haul was arranged and all was a go.
In the mean time we purchased Adagios replacement a 1996 IslandGypsy 36. A better fit for my tall self and more lockers etc for the Admiral.
Which brings us to the present. The nite before the survey the buyers arrive in NJ and call me to say how happy they are and can't wait to become the new owners of Adagio. Here is the punch line, One hour before we were to take Adagio to the yard for the survey the buyers called and said they were sorry but had a change in Heart!! Some personal reasons were given that might have disqualified them from the get go, but my only gripe was why wait till the last hour? They could have backed out In Annapolis on the second visit to the boat or anytime in the last six weeks!!

Moving forward Adagio is for sale, ready for new adventures and in great shape for anything close to 30k. 1983 IslandGypsy32 Ford Lehman 120 with 2600 original hours and a 4kw kohler genny with approx. 900 hrs.
More specs and link to images coming soon. Message me if you have questions or want to see her. JohnP

Ouch. What a mess. Hope you keep the deposit!!

Good luck with the sale. Sounds like she is well proven as a traveler and should sell quick.

This is when a good broker earns his keep.
This is selling and people get cold feet.
You need closer.
Someone who can "help" people get over their anxiety and complete the deal.
Sometimes on the buying side - sometimes on the selling side.

Give them a few days and call them back.

Those buyers were nuts not to buy that boat. I'd buy it myself now if it weren't on the coast and we didn't have one already.

Looks very well maintained. It seems tragic that so much boat is only worth $30 K.

It should sell quickly.

A hell of a nice boat for 30k, the buyers backed out of a great deal. Probably not much boating experience I would guess and got cold feet.

Very nice boat. Seems priced very low for its apparent condition. Good luck selling her. A bargain for some lucky person.

Greetings,
Mr. I. Tom's River NJ is about 1000 miles, as the crow flies, from Miami. Buy her and run her down. It would be a wonderful trip.

IMO the 32 has a great internal layout, better than the 36 in some ways. Really nicely balanced design, one of Halvorsens best in my book.

I would think $50K would be a deal on this boat. Did you steal it when you purchased it?
