Sounds like a sub-optimal situation for the owner.

Photo shows what appears to be a front end loader swamped in the surf. Can only assume the owner was trying to dig a channel out for the yacht. I wouldn't be surprised if the damage to a digger like that costs more than what the boat did. 

Bout looks in OK condition, but assuming its got sea water through it now, the engine, batteries and electrics wont be so flash.

 

Sad for the owner.At least he is trying to clear his boat off the beach.

Just a theoretical question here. How long can you dry your boat out for? 

 

i.e. park it directly on the beach at low tide. Also, any legal difference between careening and using beaching legs?

Boat on the beach doesn't look like a ketch. There might be a mizzen there or it might have snapped off in the grounding. Or there might not be.  It's hard to see. 

 

And the one in the trademe ad doesn't seem to have the white cove stripe.

Had a friend park a cat up on springtide then jacked it vertically 3 ft up on blocks, and worked on it for 6 months there. Sometimes everything is ok until someone complains and then a council officer visits and gives you 24 hrs to move.think the complaints would be pretty quick if you chose to park on takapuna beach .

Different boats. The one on the beach is a sloop with a solar panel arch at the back. The ketch on trademe is in Picton.

Same hull colour, size and lines though, so good spotting.

It's up for sale as the owner is crook, maybe dieing crook, and has no coin.

 

One report had it for $3000. It has suffered some damage.
