    Still looking for a 4788 to purchase

    We are still looking to purchase a 4788, '97 or newer. We live in Washington State so anywhere on the West Coast would work for us!

        I know! When we were dreaming of buying, there seemed to be plenty. Now that we have sold our boat and ready to buy, there aren't any!! Keep reminding ourselves to be patient but it's hard!!

            Hi Brad, yes, Dan sold our 3988 for us in record time! He is searching for us as well. If we find something we will certainly be purchasing with Dan's help. He is phenomenal!!

          We purchased our 4788 from "Amy" at Banana Belt Boats, she knows 4788's very well, is a straight shooter and you can trust her. I learned about her from positive comments on another forum a couple of years ago. She will be able to find you what you want

            We know Amy and at one time had our 3988 listed with her. They weren't able to get it sold and went with Dan Byrd of Fairhaven Yachts and he had a buyer for us in three weeks! He's on the lookout for us now!

          +1 on Dan Byrd. There are also a couple of listings on Seattle Craigslist.

              You might consider expanding your search. I bought mine in Florida and even after shipping it was still less than the PNW. And there were many available in the NW at that time.

                2007 Meridian 490 being advertised by Crows Nest (Dale Partna) - http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/2007...s#.WinqtbS7818

                This boat has been for sale for a fairly long time and may still be down in Portland (if not it was for the last year or so). We looked at and actually made an offer on this boat over the summer, but the seller was not willing to negotiate at the time. I have seen the boat advertised on craigslist at least as low as $329k (if I recall correctly) and I suspect they might go a bit lower.

                The boat seemed to be in excellent mechanical condition (broker in Portland took us out for a sea trial), but there were some cosmetic issues caused by the boat being transported to Portland from the midwest by truck.

                Potentially an interesting opportunity, if your budget allows...

                BTW, we worked with Dale on the purchase of our 490 and sale of our previous boat, he did good work for us.

                  Beautiful boat but way out of our price range! Thank you though!

                Plus 1 for Dan Byrd, great guy. Banabelt boats has 3 for sale, ($169 to $230) I’m sure you checked out those, curious if they are no good? Yachtworld.com has pages of 4788, from all over the country, 7 in the northwest. Machog

                  There’s one in Edmonds that will be coming on the market. I don’t know the year or how soon he will be listing it, but he’s retiring from boating reluctantly. PM me if you want me to contact the owner.

                    I tried to PM you and I couldn't. We would appreciate any information you could pass on to us concerning this 4788 that might go on the market. Thank you!
