Very nice, trailer able boats. I don't care for I/O versions though.

My brother in law has one in NH. Outboard motor. He likes it for day cruising around Great Bay (or whatever its called). For overnights, he has something quite bit larger.

I saw an ad for one in Chesapeake Bay magazine (the latest issue). I agree they are nice boats if they suit your needs. A little utilitarian on the inside but they will get the job done.

Your best bet is to do an Internet search. Another option is to find a broker and tell him or her what you're looking for. The brokerage fees are paid by the seller so you are getting this service for free.

Bert,
Take a look at the Rosborough owners site. I believe there are some Rossis listed for sale: groups.yahoo.com/group/RF-246Owners. I've owned a Rosborough RF-246 for three years - a seaworthy, trawler design with live-aboard capability. Very satisfied.
Best,
Grumpy Old Men - Rosborough '03

Hi Bert,
Grumpy Old Men is NOT for sale. Rosboroughs of roughly the same vintage ('03) are selling from 50k - 65k depending upon motor(s), A/C, electronics, etc. The hardtop over the cockpit is a hugh plus. Doubles the living space.
Good Luck,
Grumpy the Younger

So are Sea Dories and I can't see why. Perhaps being an old man just puts me out of the loop on what costs what these days. I remember thinking my sister was kinda stupid for paying $10,000 for a Honda Accord. At the time it was "just a little economy car" but very recently I paid double that for a Honda Accord and it wasn't quite new. Sticker shock and inflation (should be reversed) are having an unreal effect on me. And I admit I generally think of new things like SUV's as stupid but after they become old I eventually like them. Don't think I'll ever like SUV's but they aren't old yet .. are they?

Speaking of sticker shock, a new Suburban 4x4 LTZ will run you about $75000 after taxes, and an Escalade will run you over $95000.

To me, that's insane.

rosborough boats

No. I buy used stuff. I'm a car dealer so I can get them from the auction. I have a 2011 Chevy Tahoe I just bought that I'm driving now-- it was around $29k with 60k miles. Wife drives a little 2012 Lexus convertible.

I was a new car dealer 9 years ago, and remember new Suburbans running around $40-45k, and I thought that was pretty high back then.

Not all the rosboroughs are expensive. There is a 35' in Michigan for $49k asking price. Low hour Cummins in it.
