If anyone is interested in the boats (in particular) or any of the larger items, but isn't local and/or doesn't have the time/resources/space to transport and store them, shoot me a PM. I have a climate controlled warehouse just down the street and can quote on transport & storage. Also might be interested in any creative joint bids or deals.

What's the story on the boats for sale?  Particularly the J/35.

Fuck that, I'll take two 22's and a 24.

Valhalla Sailing Project could use some 22's, 24's or 80's. Anyone have any intel on if/how/what sailboats are up for grabs?

A pity.  They were hurt by the Hall Spars exit.

They had some quite viable products, like the Alerion Express 28.  Roughly 450 sold, I think.

Hopefully someone will see the opportunity.

Anyone know why they went under?  I thought their expansion to the Warren facility was privately funded / no debt.  Just curious....

Thanks jerseyguy! I'm going to see about having a representative for the program up there to look into these.

 

Also if anyone knows of people looking to donate a J/22 or J/24 to worthwhile cause, please have them contact me at Valhalla Sailing Project (rob@valhallasailing.org) or on the Book.

 

Cheers

Sailboat sales across the U.S. used to be 30,000 to 40,000 units per year.  This year I suspect will be under 2,000 units (including Sunfish, Lasers, Optimists, up through super yachts).  There aren't enough orders to keep factories open.

Hey, I'm guilty of buying a European made sportsboat. If they fit in a container, importing has become easy. It's a global economy and US made boats are no longer the only option for US sailors.

That J/35 looks real familiar......  used to have a trailer for it if I recall correctly.

They seem to have an offer already for all the molds and business name at 600k. I wonder who wants to buy them? Hinckley has been acquiring brands lately or could be one of the euro companies. Be interesting to see where they end up.
