South Pacific Boat Market

is there one?

i know there's probably opportunity to find a smallish cruiser on the outskirts of the south pacific triangle, hawaii, NZ or Australia....but what about inside it? tahiti/fiji? looking for a 30ish footer reasonably priced (less than 30k)

many thanks

French Polynesia?

I had a quick look on Yachtworld with country French Polynesia and found a few boats, Fiji less so. Select a price range of over a few dollars to exclude the megayachts.

I would have thought that it would be easy enough to buy. The hard part comes when you want to sell.

Re: south pacific boat market

Import duties are so high in these places that I'd be surprised if you'd find a decent deal, unless it's the sale of a yacht in transit.
