Yes whether the cost of refit fits the bill, is very much dependent on two things: the boat's condition, and its intended use.
Spongy decks, a rusty blob of an engine, bad electrics, a rig in need of renewal, hull blisters...the list goes on.
Most those things a boat of this type questions, whether wood or glass.
My brother had a Pearson Vanguard. Great boat, by most accounts. Designed by Phil Rhodes, CCA, 32 foot.
He sailed it to Hawaii and back, after many thousands in upgrades, and then decided to sell it when he got back.
Now there was a boat set up and ready to go. He sold it for under twenty, including the self-steering, and the rodes, and most of the anchors, and all of the rig upgrades, and all the other stuff that is in such a project.
What is something worth? He didn't sell in a panic, just needed to get rid of the boat.
I dunno, but I ask again, how much are they asking?

So many questions, so little time.
