Has anyone seen the Adams 10 down in Melbourne that is set up for IRC with a carbon rig that's for sale for $40,000 -$45,000 turn key ?

Makes a Adams 10 with a tin rig look a little over priced at $105K don't you think ?

The ad claims it was launched in 2021. If he knocks a zero off the price he will be much closed to its worth.
I think he means re-launched... that boat started life as Eat My Shorts, which won a couple of A10 Nationals, a well sailed quick boat.
And doing some research with regards to the results that he has listed,
Q.L.D. States 2021 I.R.C. 1st / P.H.S. 1st.
Port Stephens 2021 I.R.C. Div.3 3rd. 2022 I.R.C. Div3. 4th ORC. Div3. 2nd.
Sailfest N.S.W. 2022 I.R.C. 2nd
Sail (of) Paradise. 2022 I.R.C. 4th. O.R.C.i. 2nd

The owner took a well rated A10....did a massive re-work....optimized everything....spent a fortune...and ended up with....a well rated (non class legal) A10...Hmmm

I think it said that $75K of the $105K was for the new carbon mast, boom, pole and new sails. Still not chump change though...
That is a ridiculous amount for a carbon rig for an A10 - I was quoted about $35-$40K for mine. I decided that over 15 metres the difference in weight wasn't that great. Yes a carbon rig is stiffer.

Anyone able to tell me why the Pacific 50s at under/around $300k are so much less than a Marten 49 at $650k? Seem pretty similar and only marginally slower?

They’re actually chalk and cheese.

The Marten is a carbon build (roughly 1 to 1.5 tonne lighter IIRC), and the design itself is about 5 years younger than the Pacific 50.

The Marten is also surprisingly quick. The Pacific isn’t a bad boat at all, but the Marten is (IMHO) better.

Not sure about the Pacific, but the Marten is manageable with a few mates for a WAGs race. Tilt in Hobart seems to get out most weeks.

There is a 5 year build difference between, but there looks a generation between the two... All important if you have a wife to convince ;)
