My wife (PROUD) and I are in Thailand
. We have been looking at catamarans for 4 months. Found a 470 that we really like and believe has been kept up and taken care of. However they didn't want to part with the boat until March 2017 and then in the Caribbean
We looked and inquired on many boats. (Dealing with many of the brokers was horrible) Then we went to Singapore
and looked at a new 450ST. We are real novice
, but it was what we wanted. So we made a offer and didn't budge. They finally agreed with us, with some conditions we could live with. So we put a 10% deposit down..
Wouldn't you know it! The next day we received a message from the 470 and they were in Australia
and ready to leave the boat! We were a little uncomfortable with some of the issues between the dealer and Lagoon
an felt we might have made a mistake buying
a new Cat,
We asked if there could be a fee and we cancel the sale
. (This just after 2 days) Not a chance.. they were having none of that!
So we are going to fit a 450ST sail in Asia
for a year or 2, then start our journey! We need to install the following items and have been observing many of the post and suggestions here on the form.
1. Safety Equipment
2. First Aid
5. Dive compressor
7. VHF radio
8. Satellite phone
9. Second Anchor
Things to consider
1. Small washing
2. Ice maker
3. Fishing gear
Any suggestions or ideas are very welcome.
