So, should I still call you Jef?

How do I get in contact with the new owner? I doubt the broker will help with that.

You stated the new owner was a yard owner. It can't be too difficult to locate a boat that size in a yard. Assuming of course the yard isn't too far away.

Google search all yards within a 50 mile radius and start calling around. Get a chatty yard owner on the phone, describe the boat and sale circumstance and he will narrow it down for you pdq. It really is a small community and these guys talk more than gals in a beauty shop.

Re: Completely Overwhelmed

GG,
Jef is fine. I don't know how you can get to the buyer. I don't think yacht sales are listed the way real estate transactions are. I suppose you could ask the broker. Why wouldn't they reveal who bought the boat, or the seller if you know them. You might also try to contact the boat yard where the boat was located and ask who the owner was and see if you can find who the buyer was. A few calls might bear fruit or be a dead end and then you can either contact the buyer or just move on in your search. Good Luck!
Jef

Re: Completely Overwhelmed

The boat will come back onto the market, but at a higher price. It might be beyond your budget and perhaps redone in a style that does not suit your needs. Cost of repairs what with land, buildings, taxes, payroll, workman's comp, utilities and profits make repairs and upgrades expensive. I would say go offshore for work that needs doing. I remember you once said you had workmen from Central or South America that had great pride in their work and managed to get twice as much done as a USA worker. Talk with them, maybe they can get you contacts and even help supervise the work. This will give you more flexibility in your search, get a boat with a good hull that looks bad and fix her up. That's what you do with a house. (by the way, a boat may times is referred to as feminine, the subjective pronoun, her, but if you are a woman that owns a boat, why not say him?)

Check with Zeehag about getting good work done down south that's inexpensive.

Re: Completely Overwhelmed

My sense is that GG is not into a boat fixer upper. I could be wrong. She wants to get her mother and kids on the boat and live aboard ASAP. All boats will have new owner modifications and I am sure GG understand this and is expecting to undertake them. Of course no one wants to pay more than they have to for anything. But DIY work or owner work where the owner is the project manager requires probably more experience that GG has at this time. My guess is she will look for competent, reliable mechanics / companies do perform the work she will require... some as a result of the survey report and other modifications... such as heat for example deemed necessary. Members here can point her in the right dfirection and advise her as she begins the refit work. I seriously doubt she wants move a DIYer hull to South America for an extensive refit. That hardly makes any sense. One would think that large yachts of the size she's after have been reasonably well maintained... certainly if it has been used a lot. But some big yachts which are not used might well need some attention. Clearly there's not a lot out there which matches what GG is after... but she'll find the right boat.

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. And the boat that I wanted/lost didn't need much work. The interior was all new and very nice. But it did have some mechanical issues. Nothing that couldn't be resolved. I think that I will take a shot at e-mailing the broker to see if he will release the buyer. I'm guessing not, as he will probably want my name in his rolodex for another potential sale, but you never know.

GG, FWIW I think the Yu Ching-built Defever that Boatman posted means it's basically a 52" with 7' of cockpit space added on. Maybe original (as in cockpit motor yacht) or retrofitted, can't tell. Not much info on berths, and the only ones specifically mentioned are master and VIP (a euphemism for "guest") -- and I'd assume they'd have mentioned more if there were more.

Anyway, thought useful to make a point about the flying bridge. As you say, the boat doesn't have a "raised" pilothouse in the expedition sense, but OTOH it did look like a decent pilothouse and it's behind a Portuguese bridge, which can be useful.

Now about the flying bridge: it's possible to pretty much fully enclose those -- especially so when there's an existing hardtop structure (which could also be added) -- with some combination of fabric (canvas, Stamoid, Sunbrella), hard clear vinyl (EZ2CY, Makralon, etc.) and soft clear roll-up vinyl (e.g., Strataglass, Isenglass).

Essentially similar to a raised pilothouse, although obviously not up to the rigors of green water over the flying bridge. Still, the greenhouse effect provides some heat in cool weather, the clear panels can be pinned up and/or rolled up for added ventilation in hot weather (we remove and store all our aft panels during Summer)... and it's not uncommon to add heat and AC as from a marine reverse cycle unit or whatever. FWIW, we spend probably 75% of our time up on the bridge...

Not a recommendation for that Yu Ching boat, just a launchpad for a point about mods you can make (if necessary) on a boat you might otherwise find satisfactory.

Thought about your search as we were watching the Burr Yacht Sales/Fleming rendezvous over this last weekend. About 40 Flemings on site (their yard next door, plus 12 at our marina) of various sizes, plus 30 other owners who arrived by other means. They did a fleet gathering on the water on Sunday morning, with the Boatpix.com helicopter buzzing the place... and it was pretty impressive watching about 30 of 'em pull out of the two marinas en route to the local scenic lighthouse for group shots!

Now if they just didn't have so many digits in their price tag... although I think I'd still probably categorize those mostly as coastal cruisers and island hoppers. And nice ones, at that!

If you click on the link at the bottom of the Ad you'll find it has 3.. possibly 4 cabins... the two big ones and at least 1 more... maybe 2..
The only thing lacking is the silly Empire State bridge..

Ah. Hadn't realized that was a hot link, thanks. Looks like 3 staterooms: master with queen, VIP (guest) with queen, and V-berth.
