Thanks Bruce, I landed on a listing page and so no KK42 photo so I moved on. Clicking through now it's clearly a 42. The photo posted here with the wood trim gunwales threw me.

This one looks to be a real mess. If you had the time, space and skills it's certainly cheap. But I'd bet someone would be into the boat for far more than it's worth when they are done. I'd rather buy a creampuff 42 for under $300K and go cruising.

good comments guys, defiantly need your eyes wide open here!
I'm sure there is a reserve so at least $75K is what i would expect .
there are plenty of better boats to spend on ,supposedly the interior is ok .
IF you had to have A KK42 this is one way and then all the repairs are your own.
But"If ifs and ands were pots and pans, there'd be no work for tinkers' hands."
Ill let this pass but it was interesting being such an early model.....
if i already owned it, my approach would be very different.
cheers warren

I know this boat. It was berthed at Hartge Yacht Harbor in Galesville, MD for at least four years while we leased there. The owner was asked to move his boat elsewhere. This boat is a mess externally. Awhile back I posted pictures I took to another thread that discussed this boat. If the interior is anything like the exterior, OMG, walk away. I wouldn't take this boat as a gift.

thanks I appreciate the warning , I already decided to not even bother looking at it. (boat is in Deale now)
Besides I'm still confused why in 42 feet there isn't even room for one small guest cabin!

You keep mentioning its a single cabin version.. I thought all KK42's have the small office/cabin with the double single berths.

I have only seen a double berth or V berth in bow ,
Possible berth in pilot house?
Not seen anything else but not expert on KK42 layout
Quick www search I find this
Open to correction
I realize guests could sleep on sofa etc but that gets old very fast unless immediately family!
Cheers Warren

Expecting it to price out for sale at a million seems very optimistic. A KK42 that is in fully working condition can be had in the $250s. Even with the twins I wouldnít expect it to go above $300.

With the criteria above, the real question is capital and commitment. Iíd have at least $50-100k on hand to start the refit.

Just my 2 pennies.

(If I didnít have my 43 Tradewinds and the criterium above was met, Iíd bring it to FL and embark on the dream.)
I would think that twins would be less value in this particular boat. And even $100K would probably not do it for a complete refit.
