I thinking of selling my 1996 K1 because of lack of use. It is in great condition with a FeatherCraft downwind sail. But I really don't know how much to expect for it. I've tried Ebay but so few of them come up there. So I was hoping for some help from forum members on it's valuation.
Thanks

Barry

It's a Hypalon hull and the deck is sewn to the hull, not welded (a "con" usually). Also, this must be one of those models with added framework around cockpit (a "pro" - those frames were the strongest), and shorter than post-1997 models (neither too good, nor too bad feature). I think - $1500-$2300, depending on the hull and deck condition. That sail can probably add another $80-100 but only for those who needs it. Try Craigs for prices (a good place to sell locally, too).

Barry,

have you been able to sell your K1 meanwhile? How much did you get for it (if I may ask)?

I'm pretty much in the same situation, wondering what a 1997 K1 (Hypalon hull with sewn Cordura deck, fibre glass coaming) in absloutely impeccable condition might be worth (in CAN$). It might change owner within the family, so we both would be interested in a fair price.

Any hint (also from others) will be appreciated.

Peter

Peter, as of yet I haven't bothered to put it up for sale. but I recon its worth at least $2000. Maybe more. I might put it on Ebay in the future, I'm trying to get enough cash together to buy a sailboat!
