About this Sailboat:
“Insteadof” is a fiberglass Bingham 39′ world cruising sailboat built by an engineer who did not intend that she ever be sold. This boat is not in turnkey condition. She moved to dry-dock near Mojave 10 years ago, and needs some sweat-equity invested before returning to the sea. This is a perfect project boat at an excellent price for the knowledgeable buyer. She is impossibly roomy, absurdly stout, extremely dry, and she spins heads everywhere she goes.
Why trust your life to a business motivated to spend less time, less money, and less effort on construction, and then charge you more for a ship they would never sail out of sight of land? The Insteadof was carefully selected and lovingly crafted by a builder who intended to circle the world in her. For less than the price of a soulless Clorox bottle she can by purchased, refurbished by a hands-on owner, and cruise safely and comfortably over the horizon. Or she can be set up as the ultimate live aboard getaway, ready to untie and slip quietly beyond the reach of any landlocked problems that might come knocking.
