Default Alex, 55, m,sailing soon

Hello, we are a group of guys in the market to buy a catamaran. Because all prices vary so much we thought we give it a try here for someone who urgently needs to sell something nice. We also do have a little budget problem.
Our dreamboat should not be older than 10 years. It can be a charterboat, if the price difference to a privatly owned modell is drastically. Overall the price must be A1.
Our ideas are:
FP Belize 43"
Nautitech 40 44
Lagoon 380
Lavezzi 40
Athena 38"
Privilège 376

The location is at this time not so important.

We also heard of bank and repo auctions spec. in the US. Can anybody tell us something about this or has a website for us?

Thank you.

Welcome to Cruiser Log. We hope you find the cruising forums useful.

Regarding the purchase of a boat--generally people in a hurry don't find good deals. Of course that is a very broad statement to make. There are always exceptions. I would suggest that you visit Yachtworld online and contact brokers who are listing boats of interest to you. Finding a broker local to you who can help you understand the current world market for cruising boats would be a good idea as well.

Distressed sales (repos, etc) are out there--you just need to find one via a broker, marina, or word of mouth. If you sail, tell everyone you know about your desire to find such a boat. If you do NOT already sail and have contacts in the sailing world, I would heavily suggest that you NOT be in a hurry--take your time and find a good boat.

Our moderator, JeanneP, purchased a boat that had been in charter service. She will likely come post here at some point. However, I recall that she states those charter boats are used very hard and may not be in as good of shape as one would like to have for a cruising boat. Beware.

Enjoy the forums,
