I purchased a new 2016 450S from Simpson Marine
Phuket. However the boat was brought into Singapore
by ship from France
, used at the Singapore boat show
It was agreed I would do handover in Singapore then sail her to Phuket.
1. The boat has been paid for for over a month. It was struck by lighting
need time to ship parts
and do repairs
. I asked if I came a few days early, if I could stay on the boat, do some shopping
etc. I was told no must do handover first to look for scratches etc. I said ok that is reasonable. Then I asked if the bottom would be cleaned and inspected as it was shipped and has been in the water
in the marina 4 to 5 months. I would like to make sure no damage had been done in that time and in the shipping
process. They feel that is unreasonable.
2. I asked that we take her out, run her up under power. Sails
up & down full system check with a tech on board. They said can't leave the marina. They say because of Singapore laws. I said up to them to obtain a day permit
or whatever it takes. They say unreasonable.
Looking for others that have went through handover, what is responsible and unreasonable.
