Default Steel yacht project eBay Australia

Boden South Seas 12 metre yacht, sunk and recovered. Deceased estate sale, should go cheap.

That is a lot of work - think the seller might be dissapointed!

Unlikely. One of these in good condition fetches anywhere from $45k to $110k depending on when it was built. Plenty of wiggle room for any restorer.

Not sure if this is the same one, or whether it changed hands on eBay in April but the coincidence of seeing another decrepit Boden South Seas for sale warrants a posting.

$3300 for a 39'er steel yacht is pretty good buying.

I contacted the seller but no details forthcoming as yet.

And again it vanishes. No response to emails, now sold.
