I have a 32' Excalibur that I've been trying to sell with one engine out of the boat (I have no time to put it back in) but its rebuilt and dynoed, and people run away from it like its the black death. If I was looking for a boat like that I would jump all over it for that cheap, but it doesn't seem like anyone really wants to do any work. I've offered it to a few people for half of what its worth and still get nothing. So then I had a bunch of people asking about the engines and seeing if I would part it out...So I gave them a fair price and they never respond. My next step is to light the f*cker on fire and jump in it. I guess I am no help because I am looking for similar advice, but I just wanted to let you know that I have had no luck selling for cheap with the option to do work on the boat, much like you are thinking. I guess I would say fix the engine and sell it turn key, but I can understand that you would rather have someone pick it up cheap and do the work themselves....believe me I can Understand.
