John Doe 0 Posted November 18, 2020 Share Posted November 18, 2020 I am an inexperienced sailor and would like to buy a yacht for my family with two children. Unfortunately, the offer is not that big and the possibility of finding a yacht with a mooring is even smaller. Now I have come across a yacht that I have seen and judged by more experienced sailors to be in very good condition. In turn, a dealer said that a Davidson 28 with a wooden top is of almost no value, even if it has a newer engine in it. What do you recommend me to bid here? Any feedback is very welcome.
