WE have an update on our Mahe 36.

It is hull # 29 and it is programmed to be out of the factory on 13 March 2007 with delivery to Sydney (Australia) early May 2007.

Our "broker" will be at the factory next week so I will post any updates.

How is everyone's deliveries going?

There are now a lot more photographs on the Fountaine Pajot website.

Worth a look.

Any updates on your delivery date? My DH and I are quite interested in the Mahe 36 so will be interested to hear all about yours when you do take delivery!

Hi to all of you.
Last week a Mahe 36 arrived in Fort Lauderdale. I saw the boat and it looks amazing. The only thing that I did not like is that the bimini does not not cover the whole cockpitt. They are thinking of different ways to install the bimini. I will keep you updated with any changes.

I do not like the bimini either.we will have to do something else.My boat is suppose to be on schedule....what does it means I am not so sure...end of this month hopefully.you can be sure that I will let you know when it gets here.I think that those Catamarans buiders are overwelhmed with orders and they are trying to deal with it.I think that Lagoon is going through the same thing .JC.

Jean, Scott,
You can add my name to the list of FL people who have a Mahe on the way. Mine is supposed to arrive in the next couple of weeks. I have to agree with you regarding the bimini - I'll wait until I see it in person to form my final opinion, but right now it sure doesn't look worth the $$$...

For me, the delay isn't bothering me too much. I plan on moving to NC as soon as the house is sold, but given the market right now it's very slow. That said, I have 90 days to get the boat out of FL or I have to pay sales tax - quite a large number compared to the $1500 max. sales tax in NC.

BTW - if you know anyone who wants to buy a house in Lake Worth...

DKsailing, Mark
I'm suprised that I wasn't told by Willmar that the boat was in. I've been asking them to let me know. Can't wait to see it.
DK, how long of a wait did you have from the original delivery date? I've been told that mine starts in January, I hope that date is still good.
What options are you having done here?

Mark,

The boat isn't actually here yet. It's *supposed* to be here in the next couple of weeks. Part of it was my fault - FP would not release the boat until it was paid in full, and the boat loan took much longer than planned. (Actually I was hoping the house would be sold and I wouldn't need a boat loan). Due to the delay Willmar said I 'missed the boat' in Nov. (no pun intended) and the next ship was to leave Great Britain around the 3rd week of Dec.

I ordered the boat in Nov. 2005. Mid-2006 I was told delivery was to be Feb. 2007. Then I got a call in Nov. saying it's ready to go - hence the hurry to get a boat loan.

The options included:
dinghy davits, lazy bag, hard bimini top, antifouling, cabin blinds, 110v main system, stereo, safety equip, salon curtains, salon table convertable to berth, electric heads, 110v water heater, hot and cold deck shower, 12v fans, and the electronics pack.

One thing I never thought of during the whole purchase process was all the added costs of getting the boat here - commissioning, delivery, custom duties, taxes, blah, blah. Sure adds up in a hurry. I guess the good part is the price has gone up around $30k since I bought it.

Dave
