    I can acquire one for 37,000 US its a 1985 with usual crap on it and a Yanmar.

    I though I might buy it to play around with, same price as a new bike!!

    Any thoughts on an old Oceanis 350, I suppose it will have osmosis.

    Its supposed to be in good nick but I havnt looked at it, I think 37 K is a bit much don't you?

    Hard to say Frosty.

    A boat is not a hull , its all of the stuff on it. Be good to look carefully at its inventory and maintenece. Sails, rigging , electronics, plumbing ,furnishings....if all the gear is 1985.... its dead...kaput. walk on by.

    In the Med...dead ex charterboats from 1985 are chainsawed into pieces then thrown into the dump. Worthless.

    If the boat has been updated during its life cycle it might be a good bargain
