I think it is quite a good buy. For someone with some cash, and a need for a decent sized boat. Maybe someone who wanted to run a charter fishing or scuba diving charter business, eg.
I don't think it's as bad as some are making out. The 'needs work' statement is often made about anything which is a bit tired - often mostly cosmetic. I see it in ads for houses, cars, and boats. In fact it would have been entirely apt to be in the ad for my boat when I bought it. Just saying'...

Greetings,
Hmmm....$135K three years ago. Well, as I noted in post #5 it appears she sank and it could have been pre-$135K listing (one engine runs one is PICKLED-Why pickled?). The only thing you're buying is the hull and superstructure. Wiring, engines and pretty much everything else would have to be looked at and refurbished if necessary. It doesn't matter how well she was originally constructed, after a salt water soaking, it's "do everything" time IMO. Could be in the mid to upper six figure range, at least....Just sayin'....For $800K you could buy this:

Rescue ships. Nice. Maybe a tad less refined than the Admiral would want, but us boys might not mind the sparse accommodations. You'd be doing the boating world a kind favor by adopting a rescue ship, as well as a rescue dog to travel with you.

I am no check writer but I do cherish the moment when one of them does decide to not let an old classic boat go to the graveyard and saves something special for all of us that appreciate them, and to see them again, in all of their glory. It just kills me seeing old boats with beautiful lines die.

wood hull(dbl. planked)Alaskan cedar-

Double planked hulls are not calked , except perhaps at the garboard seam.

The real question is what one would do with such a large , thirsty boat>

If diesel gets back to 25c a gal, this would be a great toy!

Can you imagine the reception you would get arriving unannounced at some island nations with this thing all painted up and looking tough. What a hoot

Billyfeet: I think that the soundtrack you pointed out there may well be a more effective sonic anti-fouling treatment than the greatest hit collections from Slim Whitman, Mitch Miller and Lawrence Welk combined!

Having trained on the earlier 80' class of YP boats, I would recommend that any potential buyer carefully inspect the bow area for crash damage repairs resulting from high speed impact with the sea wall....most of them suffered said damage....multiple times...

Would anyone be able to give an estimate for a refurbish job if some better pictures were taken? Relatively close to the ship geographically, and have some interest in this money-hole. And I can't find where the seller talks of the sinking and bringing up, may someone direct me?
