In other words, a custom built boat for $200k USD. Good luck.

Parenthetically, there is no such thing as a “hurricane proof” boat

I knew you would react like this ,-)

well ... basically there are good boats like this.. but very rarely.. and that makes it time consuming...and thats why I came to wonder that there are in total only some 30.000 boats (incl. all small boats) are listet at the trade platforms.

He is not looking for a new boat and custom made/one-off boats don't hold their value very well. Also it is not a very common set of requirements so I don't expect he will get into a bidding war over it. So it might possibly happend.

25.0 boats is clearly wrong. Maybe 25.5 boats?

no. 100% wrong. see alex_sauvage. he got it


There are absolutely great boats selling between 100-200k from their building owners directly.
but all scattered over the world.

I am afraid I spend all my budget on plane tickets before i get to find the right boat.


thats why I hoped I missed some selling platforms....

You probably know that, but there is a difference betweeb US and European system. In Europe, where OP is from, comma is a separator for a decimal place and dot for a thousand. It is opposite in USA

How about this....

60′ de Haas Shipyard Motorsailer 1968/94 – $295,000

Might stretch the budget, but they've had it for a while and might negotiate.
