SO yeah, hi to you all too
hi twisticles ...

imho, pimex will be a better place for looking at reasonably priced boats ...

depending upon yr budget, the 1-15 show is really catering to the HNI's ... while boat asia should showcase low to medium end boats ... though last years show was quite a let down ...

Is it tough to sail a board? And is it better to get a motorboat or sailboat or catamaran as a liveaboard?

Thanks very much!


Hi, sailboat is more stable, comfortable. There is more room space hence make it suitable for a liveaboard boat. we have a Lagoon400 sailboat on hand. Let me know if you will be interested.

Hi Morgan, we are in Singapore. The catamaran is from oct2010, which we are doing a charter business with and it is in an excellent condition. We can sell the boat together with the business ( turnover rate from 2012 was S$100k) Do feel free to let me know what other details you may need.
