Come on chaps and lasses, you are missing a great opportunity to grab yourself an absolute bargain. Just under a year ago I drew attention to a Duellist 32 that was for sale at £19,950. She is now going for £16,950 – a ridiculous giveaway! Don’t think about waiting another year, because by then the market may have picked up; even if it hasn’t, the owner would be mad to sell for less, and I feel sure he won’t.
Just have a butchers at the Clarke and Carter website (link below) to see what you would be getting - a fine cruising and racing yacht fully equipped and ready to go. Having two double berths and two singles, she’ll even take five other crew members if your mates or family want to come along. If they don’t, she’s fitted for single-handing. She’ll sail to windward efficiently, drawing no more than 3’ 7”. When her plate is fully down her draught is 6’ 3”, and there are few yachts that will outperform her. She’s pretty stable too. Think of that standing headroom throughout - what a luxury. Talking of luxury, look at all that beautiful wooden panelling with bags of locker space; sink into her upholstered settee as you dine at table.
Full instrumentation will make navigation a snip. Even the Missus would like her gimballed two burner gas cooker with grill and oven, not forgetting the cool box. There’s nothing missing; she’s got a liferaft, two lifebuoys and a Danbuoy.
Seriously, if I had the dosh, I would buy her without hesitation. I certainly would not be advertising her here.

. . . . Yes but it's the same old story. If you haven't got or can't justify the money, then it's out of reach and it's not a bargain!
A couple I know of have had their catamaran on eBay for over a year now. I was very temped:
The same goes for many a bargain.
You are not alone in your temptation.
