You mean for all details except your asking price...

Sorry for being grumpy on this Monday morning, but I never understand why some sellers won't provide the the asking price in their materials. As a prospective buyer, I look at the asking price to glean a number of things, not the least of which is to determine how serious a buyer is about selling. Yes, I could send an email, but I don't always have the time to ask for something that should be provided (IMHO) in the first place (obviously I prefer to spend my time posting complaints).

OK, rant over. Good luck selling your boat.

Thanks Tom. Sorry you were the recipient of that complaint to many sellers- you were simply the straw/camel and all that. The coffee has since kicked in and mellowed me out.

And I was absolutely being sincere when I wished you good luck with your sale.

I agree. You are the seller. put the price with the add. Its either affordable or not.I think its way over priced "with all due respect"
If you want to sell i suggest you look at boats of that year and size and adjust accordingly.

"with all respect", but if you really want to buy a boat, i suggest first look the boat, than start the discussion about the price.

Of course, for a serious prospektive owner, the price maybe will adjust.

Quite disappointing this tread here, no comments how is she looking, only...

Well, no photos of the interior and 600 Euro to "test" her for a day? It seems to me that even if she does come with a trained seal you got as good responses as you can expect!

Look in the Photo Gallery. There is a drop-down menu to select interior pictures. Plenty of them.

The test drive fee is certainly not normal and I would balk at that.

Tom, if you post it on an internet forum it kind of assumes you are looking for a discussion not just posting an ad. We all assume the price is adjustable but I would welcome any feedback. The price does seem on the high side and if I were the seller I'd want to know first impressions.

The photos look nice and I like that there are lots of them; however, after buying two boats recently from mostly internet shopping I've found photos can be very misleading. How current are the pictures?

As for the test drive fee, I'd think anyone who goes to the expense of traveling to the boat (somewhere on the Med I guess, but I can't determine exactly where you are) for an inspection is serious so i don't understand the fee and it seems off-putting to me. Maybe you would automatically waive it, but again first impressions count.

Thanks Doodles for your constructive, fair comment.

A fee for test drive is quite uncommon, but protect me maybe against it, wasting time with test drives with not real interested people.
But i agree, for these who take the expences of travalling to the Med for a serious inspection, the daily test drive fees should waive it.

About the photos in the Gallery: in technical details all of them from 2010 (apart from this with the "trained seal" in Galapagos), in Interior all of them from 2010 (apart from "fish on the table), in Apperence and on the home page all photos are from 2010, where you can see SILVER BLUE with the new grey lazybag.

regards
TOM

Great looking boat! However underbridgedeck clearance looks problematic!(minimal)

Thanks georgetheleo ! Brigdedeck clearance is not really problematic, of course in heavy conditions you can have some waves knocking under the bridgedeck, but that never had influenced the boat.
regards-TOM
