This one might be worth it if someone has the time to get her to where she needs to be.

    The author has mastered the art of understatement. 

    "Gelcoat could use a compound and wax" ... "Some of the upholstery will need redone" ... "Needs engine work" ...

    The right buyer could buy for $50k, invest $30k and have a nice $50k boat.

    Might buy it for 10....

    Agree with @Larea. That poor boat. How did it get to such a sad state? Looks like it had standing water in the cabin. Hardwood flooring is gone and there appears to be a waterline on the berth steps. Upholstery is unforgivable. Interesting that there are no photos of the engine room. Ugh.

    I think you’re going to be surprised at what it will sell for. It’s at $50k now with 42 bids and 4 days left. Hard top, Joystick/Skyhook ....

    Oh that's just sickening!  Even both skegs are busted.  What the heck!  Those vinyl seats are torn up too.  Geez!

    Seller has a PR area code 787. No engine bay photo - my first warning sign.

    Didn't even need to get as far as seeing the PR area code. You lost me at the FL registration 🤣

    Has X-24 on the back of the swim platform. Is that a rental?

    Could be an old dock or slip number.

    "These boats are selling between 100k-130k" ... hah.  They are selling for $75k.  Maybe $90k in great condition with joystick.  

    But it does have a nice trailer.

    Amazes me how quickly a boat can become a turd. Really sad. 

    2012 wasn’t that long ago, lots of expensive options. Must be a bank repo / divorce or stolen recovered left to sit in a yard.

    Boats definitely require owners that are somewhat handy, attn to detail, preventative maintenance & take pride in ownership.

    Truth is - that boat could almost be worth close to $0. There is a lot of stuff going on with that thing.

    What a shame. How could anyone treat a boat like that? Sickening.
  • SeaHareSeaHare Member Posts: 158 ✭✭✭
    Im sure i could bring that boat back to life...but at what cost.. $50k up front is too much of a risk. Would be a fun project tho

    Hurricane or flood......pick your poison for that heap.  

    That being said, I've bought worse hahahaha.  In my younger years, I had more time and energy to restore a disaster like that.

    Interesting. Auction ended without a sale. Seller has it relisted and this time with engine room pics. Does not look promising.

    Current bid is at $2025...

    Strange, he had bids up to $50K at the end of the last auction with no reserve.

    Scam.  I'd take it for $2k as a public service.  Sell the trailer, shred the boat, take $500 profit.
  • shawnmjrshawnmjr Detroit MIMember Posts: 2,011 ✭✭✭✭
    Looks like it’s almost at 50 again with 24 bids. You think this guy has a few accounts and making it look like there is interest in it? Seems odd that it wouldn’t sell with a bunch of bids unless winner didn’t pay and very odd that it would be back up that high already. 
  • TonyG13TonyG13 ChicagoMember Posts: 673 ✭✭✭
    Agree. It jumped from $6K to $49K in one bid. Looks like there might be some shill bids in there.

    Yeah probably has friends bidding it up. 

    That thing is wrecked. The engine don't look very usable even for rebuild.

    Definitely smells like a scam.  The seller only has one negative feedback though.  Interesting....
