Found: cheap kk42

No affiliation. Although did survey the boat for someone 6+ years ago who walked away.

I can see this boat not far across the fairway from our boat. We are liveaboards. This boat has been there for at least three years. We passed by close aboard on Monday returning from a three-hour cruise. It was a nice day. Anyway, the decks are all teak. Can't tell anything more. Twins are rare in a KK42. That will be a plus or a minus to a particular buyer, a plus to me. Just a guess but this boat is likely to need most everything. And, those engines, well, they haven't been run in a long time, probably. I've always wondered what she is like inside. If I were in the market, I wouldn't pay more than $30,000. A very risky buy.

Here's a similar thread from January:

https://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/...ito-48423.html


Here's an older thread. This guy bought a fixer-upper KK42. Haven't heard from him over the winter. He posted other threads about the boat too. Maybe the warmer weather will bring him back.

KKs are excellent boats as we all know. Guess it all depends on how much you want to bite off. It's more than I would be willing to pay and more than I would be willing to bite off.

Here are some pictures I took today. I see some positives. Dinghy appears to be a nice one. Lifting davit appears to be strong. All windows have been replaced. Notice the aluminum frames.

The hull of this vintage KK is cored below the waterline. The condition of the coring and the amount of water in it would be a good thing to check pre-purchase.

Can't tell but those new windows look like they may have come from Home Despot.

That would be the deal killer IMO. Most anything else could be DIY fixed.

Why is anybody surprised that this old FG boat is cheap?
I wouldn’t even be inclined to look past these pics.

As for anything else you get what you pay for... And if that guy is asking that price that means it does not worth half of it.
Windows, while supposedly new does not bring much confidence to me.
Wood finish outside is far from well maintained (at best) what for me means the remaining is pretty much the same.
Hull paint started to peel off.
Not many picture of what lies beneath... Well if I was to sell fast as written I would add many pics or there is something to hide. If windows were replaced maybe water leak damages. What about engines?

This could be a great project boat, for someone handy, who has time, and who would negotiate the price down to what it really worth meaning a lot lower.

IMHO $65k sounds in the ballpark.

I thought too, but sadly it's been neglected and is in need of way more than cosmetics.

Richard - I have never heard of a KK42 with twins. I see you're a KK42 guy, any sense of how many were done that way? I imaging twins i reduces the market appeal - thoughts? I know it limits appeal to the few Nordhavns that were done in twin-configs.

Just curious- not a buyer or looker. But like many, an admirer of KKs

The twins were given some thought as far as not being overpowered and not running the engines too lightly loaded (which hurts fuel efficiency). They're smaller than the typical single that a KK42 would have. 160 total hp compared to the Lehman 135 in Dauntless, for example.

Combined size is about right. Just wonder about market acceptance of twins in a KK42. Would seem to me that anyone looking at KK42s have bought into the concept of single-engine. There's another active thread where the subject boat (Marine Trader?) needs the starter replaced which is on outboard side of the engine. Access is extremely tight due to proximity of fuel tank. Rightly or mistakenly, I would think a KK buyer would have resolved to make the trade-off of redundancy/maneuverability vs single-engine benefits.

Willard Marine made many different boats, including a line of 65-foot twin engine motoryacht-style boats in the 1970s or so. But their trawler line is 100% single engine. I don't think you could give-away a twin Willard, for example. On the other hand, I suspect twin Nordhavn's are a bit slower to sell, but do okay in the market.

Just curious.

Peter
