Nice go anywhere boat, it will go a long way slowly. Probably get it for $60-65,000.

I like this one; sailed here so well proven, has the gear for shorthanded or solo, nice size and shape.

i think sometimes the older style yachts just are not as popular as some of the more upto date designs .....hence the prices ..some are still great sea going yachts though !!

but in general due to the lack of and high cost of berths ...........THEY ARE ALL CHEAP !!! hahahahah

Beautiful yacht, and would be on my watch list but for its ELECTRIC MOTOR.
Any comments from the brains trust??

The electric motor would be great if there was some way of charging the batteries. Maybe I am missing something but I didn't see any mention of solar panels or generators, does it need to be moored at a marina to recharge? That would really limit cruising, or really force a reliance on sailing.

That is hell of a good looking yacht SandS. I love that pilot house. You will stay dry in there in any weather short of a stern pooping in the southern ocean.
The 420 is a credit to it's master if the pics are true but that yacht is a round the worlder.
At $185k, not a Iot for a lotta yacht.
Is that what you really want to do or should we rename the thread "Boat Porn".

Have a look at this beautie, already up here where the balmy breezes are, as are some pretty big hail stones around the Wide Bay and Wander's Way this week. I am sure his insurance companies will be coughing well. I can't wait to see his new trucks.

You're right on the money there Wander66.

I spoke to the broker who told me, as it stands, the boat can only really be used as a day-sailer, limited to recharging batteries at the dock.

From what the broker said, I don't think the vendor is any kind of Pardey-type sailing purist, rather just a little misguided and didn't think the whole electric thing through.

Pity as she really is quite stunning. There's something very special about Scandinavian boats

One of the yachts on the cruising channels on you tube has an electric motor. They are always having dramas when motoring if it's not sunny.

Your offer might be accepted. The options are to somehow fit a generator, or re-engine. Fitting a generator on a 31ft boat is too complicated, so it is a re-engine. Probable cost +$20k plus hassle.

There is a lot of misunderstanding out in the media and the population, about what battery power can do. Poor understanding of science, and the concept of energy density of power sources. Batteries are good for low loads, or short bursts of power, but hopeless for continuos high power demand.
