Deep in the old ebay listings you may have missed this cruiser in Seattle. Its a double enclosed model, and as they say in the real estate world. Obsolete space. Like having a dinning room and living room. It’s not how we live anymore, nor how we boat. BUT! This one is worthy of a second look.
The owners spent over $400K on it so far. Yup, that’s what is says. NEW bottom.. And maybe more. Says the two 427’s need to be rebuilt, so not sure what that’s about. At this point chuck two 454’s in it and move on.
And according to the listing, Needs mostly paint and varnish. So. Lets say you get it for 35K then spend your own time on it. Two 454’s is $30K when all in.. Now it’s $65K in it. Shipping it to let’s just say Reedville. $10K Okay now $75K and then factor in other work on it $10K, now $85K and you have one killer cruiser.
Or, a Cruiser that your wife will be a killer. BUT, you will have a boat to live on. And you cant find a nice water front house for $85K? Yup. See.. Sea?

OR? If you want already done, not a Double Enclosed, but all done and a more modern set up. There is this perfect Commander at Freedom Boat Service for slightly more, or less than you would spend. And in here is the conundrum.
