I'm sure there are a lot of buyers at the "just want to dump" price.

Not so many sellers.

yea i agree about the "lots of buyers and not so many sellers". as i told him, it is a stretch. too bad he did not come out earlier. several years ago, there was a neglected sydney-41 in singapore that would have been a real steal. this guy knows that no one is going to give him a boat out of the kindness of their heart. so he know that he will have to pay to play. in other words, he wants to spend his money, not waist it.

jono. a little more about the sydney-38?

You could pick up a sydney 40 unmodified keel (or maybe old irm keel) in old rig configuration in average condition needing new sails for about 40 k.

New rudder. (most have this)
New keel.

And you've got a decent IRC boat for 65k.

Not sure there are many out there left unmodified at present. Not sure what the price is for a good nick Syd 40 with new keel.

It seems the whole stock of Syd 40's changed hands recently.

So whilst all boats are for sale there probably are not many owners willing to dump their toy just yet.

ILC 40 MK Cafe available in Holland. Looks like it needs a lot of work so could fit the bill - http://www.yachtworl...g_id=79052&url=

i agree left hook. way too much to correct. eventually would cut the deck off and put it over a new hull and keel. then have to change the rig. way too much.

Secret Mens Business #1 is listed at $129,000.00. Would seem good value for what it is.

I think you are right and £30k is pretty optimistic even for a European buyer given the huge amount of work needed. Not sure what shipping costs would be but if you could buy the boat and have it delivered to you part of the world for under £30k then maybe.... Can't imagine there will be a massive queue of potential buyers so perhaps worth keeping an eye on.

Found a realistically priced Sydney 40 this morning but again it's in Holland so location not ideal: http://www.yachtworl...g_id=62889&url=

Nope. That's just how Bach yachting roll, the boat is unlikely to be their priority given price and amount of time it's been listed, Liesbeth might be on holiday and the boat is sold.
