He's taken this thing on some long trips, to the Bahamas, south Florida, Kentucky, etc.

Is it overpriced? What would be a reasonable price?

I would ask you what the market is on those boats, but truth be told, there is no market for either of those boats. That's not to say they are bad boats, they may not be. However, there is only one way to look at a 30+ year old boat: It's an old boat and nobody wants them. Harsh, but if you are going to buy a boat that old, you need to know that going in.

If you are going to live aboard a boat, I would suggest looking at something in the 55+ foot range. Anything below that is too small for living aboard full time.
