I am looking for a fixer upper boat that I can build into a liveaboard. Right now I think that I have found a great deal but I am lost when it comes to sailboats. Especially one with a steel hull. The boat is a 44ft Sailboat built buy Bruce Roberts and has a good running 40HP Diesel. The exterior looks very nice but there was a fire inside that burnt some of the interior so I would have to rebuild a good portion of the inside. It has a good running Diesel Engine. THe boat basically needs a new mainsail and the interior redone. I am a little worried about the steel hull. THe owner says that it is in good condition. What should I look for? The owner is asking $5000 because he had a pacemake put in and he can't work on the boat. He just wants to get rid of it. Is this worth $5000 and should I make the purchase. I saw other boats built buy Bruce Roberts like this boat that were selling for no less than $89000. Also, this boat was built 10 years ago. What do you think?
