I agree entirely and your second example sets off many more alarm bells than the first. For example, the text is exactly the same wording and format for the boat as it is for a 1961 Austin Healey and it must belong to the same "fella" too who's never available to speak to!

Unfortunately, there are a lot of greedy and stupid people around encouraging the dishonest to continue in the knowledge that there is virtually no chance of them being caught.

and it's back again along with the usual multitude of "bargains"  on another hacked account.

Take a closer look. I think you'll find that its a different boat. The second one has a vent and some timber to the rear of the windows and the first boat does not.

Any scammer would never mention lack of engines/drives, I hope it goes to a good home as it could be a nice boat.
Convert to outboard maybe, a 15hp would be fine for that on inland waterways.

stingers , the fjord 24 has been advertised fraudulently  over a dozen times, all on hacked accounts. always the same photo, and always with the bogus contact details outside of ebay. just take a look at the other items,, all cloned fraudulent and previously  advertised legitimately by their owners.

the other boat, a coronet 24  without the motor and drives is believed to be genuine.
