    It's far expensive for its wooden feature. It would be ok if the price is only around 1k but 4k plus is a big no for me. Even if the seller says that the boat have traveled far and remained intact, we should also check it thoroughly and even try its mechanism.

    Wooden? Description says ferrocement. Easy to see if sound hull. Most people a bit suspicious of FC, but a good one is OK and this may have been pro-built.

    It's a scam which has popped up before. They scrape listings from elsewhere. The purpose is probably to harvest email addresses.

    I checked before, and the purported contact address, 25 Canterbury Road
    VENTNOR, PO38 7AW, is a fake. There is no Canterbury Road in Ventnor and the post code is for a rural area outside the town.

    Agree with JumbleDuck, it is a fake web site. There are no Moody or Westerly yachts, but if you try a search it then lists Ads for other sites selling them, before their own listings. The reponses to questions about a Typhoon for sale are worth looking at. https://boats-from.co.uk/not-specifi...cht-sale-46384 It has been for sale for over a year at a bargain price. When anyone asks if it is still for sale, the exact same answer is repeated.

    If my foresight was as good as my hindsight, I would be a multi-millionaire.
