Tanzer 16 comps -- What does a boat cost

Disclaimer--These are the prices people asked--I don't know the final selling price.  Of course you will also have taxes, title transfer fees, licenses, etc... if you buy any boat.--jim

PS -- Other than a sound hull and good rigging, the primary value of the boat is the sails.  A complete suit of three new sails for a Tanzer 16 can cost in the neighborhood of $2000 US. (Add a bunch more for a spinnaker and that hardware.)  A part-out boat with a good mast and boom & a few other parts sitting on a crappy trailer is probably worth $400 - $500.  If you have all the parts you can probably sell them for $1000-$1500 before you scrap the hull.  This is a case where the parts are worth more than the whole. ( a new mast with no rigging or fittings is $400 + shipping). A very nice boat always stored indoors with four newer sails and a nice trailer should probably sell for about $4000.  Keeping in mind that the value of anything is what a non-hurried buyer would be willing to give up to acquire the item.

You think the day you get your boat is the best day of your life; you're wrong, it's the second best day of your life.  (You will understand when you try to sell the boat.)

Restored Day Sailer - 1965 Tanzer - $2250 Myrtle Beach NC
















  




I have a 1965 Tanzer day sailer that was completely restored to a better than original condition. This boat is a great boat and can be sailed by a single person. It is very light and very fast in water.

- The hull was repainted, inside was sanded and refinished with a rhino lining (no more glass work!),

- all wood work has be removed and replaced with Mahogany that has been customized including a removable floor.

-The boat has a 25 ft mast and over 150 ft of sail.

-All new hardware for rigging, new lines. I have added a set of oar locks and have a set of custom oars made for the boat which store under the removable floors.

-Boat comes with a trailer (which is overkill as the trailer is for a motor boat and has be refitted for the sail boat).

-It will also come with a 2 stroke Nissan kicker motor.

I have way more money in this project than I'm asking and only a true sailor can appreciate this boat this my asking price is well below the restoration and aquisition cost. Please look at the following Facebook site as you can see all the restoration pictures.

For sale is a Tanzer 16' sailboat. The boat is in good condition and ready to sail. It is usually taken out at Jordan Lake.

 SAILBOAT - 1971 Tanzer 16 (Fulton, MA)

 Selling my 1971 Tanzer 16 sailboat. I purchased the boat in 2007 and I am the 3rd owner. Due to work and other commitments, I have not had it on the water since 2009. It has been wrapped in a tarp and covered by an additional heavy duty tarp in my driveway ever since. The tires are flat right now on the 1971 Sterling trailer, but the boat looks good underneath. I love to sail - I just don't have the time.

PRICE:
If I fix the trailer, clean up the boat and deliver it to you - $1,000.
If you come to me and change the spare tires and get it out of my driveway - $600
Anything in between can be negotiated to a price in between.

DETAILS:
Spinnaker is original Black & Yellow.
Mainsail was replaced by 2nd owner - now white.
Jib was replaced by 2nd owner with a larger white Genoa.
New wind indicator.
New keel level.
Bumpers, anchor, ropes, rigging, tool box, life jackets and everything you need to hit the water is included.
There is a motor mount, but no motor - so no need to register the boat - only the trailer.

IMAGES:
The photos of the boat in the water and on the trailer were "borrowed" from the internet.
The "borrowed" photos show color and size - the trailer shown is similar to mine.
The sideways photo is under the heavy duty tarp, looking at the bow wrapped in another tarp.

This boat is in pretty good shape for being 45 years old. There are some minor cosmetic issues that have accumulated over the years, but you can pull it out of my driveway and drop it straight into the lake.
16' Tanzer Sailboat - $350 (Eugene) OR

 










I had plans to buy sails and use the boat, but decided it is best to pass it on to someone more interested than I am. The sailboat comes with all of the necessary parts minus the sails. You will need to install the rudders and other parts you see in one of the pictures.  (I may buy this one--I'll have to go down to Eugene and look at it--everybody needs a couple of Tanzers!)

I have the title in hand, manual, and all of the necessary documentation for transfer of title.

Tanzer 16 Sailboat and Trailer - $675 (Vashon Island) WA
















Tanzer 16 Sailboat and EZ Loader trailer. Two mains. Two Jibs. One Spinnaker. Johnson two stroke motor. This has been a project for me. I re-cored the hull and reglassed and painted that, so the boat should be ready for many years of sailing. It needs new lines and a tiller. It also has a rip in the fiberglass at the rear interior bulkhead (shown in the picture below). It sails fine and doesn't have to be fixed unless you just want to fix it.
Online I wasn't able to find one of these for less than $1200. This is a great price to get into a boat with a good reputation. Do projects on it if you like, or just get the lines and tiller and go sailing.  (I actually bought this one.  I wanted the trailer.  Now I am looking for a good home for the boat.  It is hull number 1313  --mine is 1307--  it is worth more in parts*, but I want to see it sailing again.  Needs work, but the hull  and deck are sound.  The mast is incorrect, but I might be willing to provide a factoy mast for the right buyer who can convince me that this boat will sail again.  Today's price:  $500 includes the trailer, a rudder and tiller, boom, 4 useable, but beat up sails.  It also includes my old trailer that has a new axle and bearing buddies, but it needs TLC.  One of the sails came off of boat 585. --If I have to fix it up myself--$1800.  My fix will include a hinged mast for easy set up as well as the fiberglass repair.) *It could be parted out for about $1000.  Final note:  I sold this boat for $700 which included an extra mast.  It has been sailing in Central Puget Sound.

Tanzer 16' weekender sailboat - $1400 (renton, wa)

I have a 1979 tanzer sailboat for sale or trade. I am looking for a bigger sailboat even if it needs work. Boat is complete. Swing keel, decent trailer, boat and trailer is tabbed thru 2015. This boat is called a weekender because it does have a small cabin with space for 2 to sleep on 2 berths It comes with a main and a jib.They have a little staining but I think with a dip in sail white I think they would brighten up. I am in construction and willing to do pretty much anything related to construction from frame to finish as partial trade or cash if someone has a bigger sailboat (and it doesn't have to be a lot) to trade and needs more in value for their boat. $1000 OBO or trade. Thanks for looking. Dave

Sail Boat - 16 ft Tanzer w/ trailer - $800 (Clintonville, OH)











 








1969 Tanzer 16 -- 16ft swing keel sloop sailboat with trailer. In good condition. Nice boat to sail, comfortable and stable. Has not been used for three years. No time to sail anymore between work and a newborn baby. 3 or 4 people can comfortably fit on this boat. Great for beginners, and I am happy to show you how to set everything up.

Includes 3 sails (Main, Jib and a Genoa). Main sail has seen better days. I have another main that can work on this boat but doesn't fit perfectly. That sail is in great shape, and could be modified. I will throw in for free if you want. Added new blocks and an outboard mount. Rigging lines were bought new when boat was purchased and are in decent shape. Selling a Mercury 4HP outboard separately which was used with this boat.

Here is more info about this boat: http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=4095
http://www.tanzer16.org/?section=1

Asking $900, bought for $1300 in 2007/2008. Have title.

Free Boat (ed note:  there is no such thing)

















Supposedly this was offered as a free boat in 2009--I cannot verify that. But, the mast is worth at least $200. The boom is worth at least $100. Looks like the rudder is in that mess; that would be worth at least $150 to somebody who needs one. The big concern about the hull is that it has been sitting outside and water has undoubtedly messed up some wood. Plenty of people have replaced rotted transoms and keelsons and rebuilt seats. Any blocks or other hardware you could salvage would be worth plenty.  (A small jib block costs $100 new.)  A buyer would need a trailer of course. If the sails are any good, you might be able to get this free boat back in the water for a bit more than a grand! jim

1976 Tanzer 16 sailboat for sale for $1000.

I bought this boat 2 years ago to get back into sailing and have since purchased a much larger boat to do some cruising on. The trailer in the pics comes with the boat, however it is NOT titled. The trailer has seen its better days but it is still perfectly usable.

Boat comes with a mainsail, jib and 120% genoa all in sailbags. There is lso a small aluminum danforth style anchor in the boat. Everything on the boat works as it should. It is a fast and responsive boat that can be used for daysailing or for racing. The cockpit accommodates up to four adults; the boat can be singlehanded fairly easily as well. There is a bracket on the stern for an outboard, however there is no outboard included

    1. Whenever I have trouble sleeping, I scour the Graig's List ads. I start in Vancouver, Canada and work my way south along the West Coast and then switch to Florida and work my way up to Maine and then Quebec and Toronto. The last year or so I have tried to provide some information about where on Craig's List you could begin a search. I don't want to include the exact listing because that isn't thegoal. I just wanted folks to have some idea what a Tanzer 16 costs. jim

    1. Short answer: Craig's list. Most of these posts are pretty old, and they come from all over the country. I just look through Craig's List ads. This year (2017) there have not been many Tanzers for sale anywhere. Most boats are available in circles radiating outward from Quebec, North Carolina, and Washington State. Those are the three places they were made. In the Pacific Northwest there seem to be more Overnighters than the plain deck. Don't know if that is really true, but it seems so.
