Costs of Retrofitting

Hey guys,

Looking for some rough indicative costs and recommendations on the below.

I have a Bavaria 46 2005, moving her from Germany to the southern coast of the UK.

- Bowthruster
- Autopilot
- Bimini

Many thanks for your help in advance!

Thanks,
Lawrence

Bimini and autopilot shouldn't be too bad. Bowthruster? Ouch.

Re: Costs of Retrofitting

Lawrence, when you say canopy, do you mean a full cover or just a bimini?

If its the full cover and you need stainless steel then a ball park price will be 3000. If you want a recommendation then these people are highly recommended. Not cheap but quality made products aren't.

Boat Covers & Marine Upholstery | Tecsew Ltd

For the Autopliot, these folks are also highly recommended and supplied mine. Probably 4000 depending on your requirements.

Not sure on bow thrusters, you could ask these folk for a quote, but 3000 at a guess.

Endeavour Quay - The South Coast's most accessible Boatyard

In general I found living in Germany expensive compared to the UK, so wouldn't hesitate to hold off buying anything until you arrive in the UK.

Re: Costs of Retrofitting

From my experience in talking to others:

Bow thruster pro installed 8-10K USD
Below deck autopilot 4K USD
Biminis can be all over the place in price, depending on what you are looking for in quality and scope of work.
