'The Two Best Days . . .' Just Done One of 'em !

I'm sure you all know the famous tongue in cheek saying about boat ownership, "the two best days with a boat are the day you buy one and the day you sell it!".

Well, after 6 months on the market, it gives me great pleasure (with a hint of sadness it must be said) to announce that my 16m Flybridge motor yacht has been sold!

The time on the market has given me plenty of time to research the market and gain a HUGE amount of valuable info from the good folks on this site to enable me to now actively search for a decent sailing yacht, watch this space for another sailing cruiser!!

Well thats it then..glad you found a buyer, but seems a moment of silence is still in order.
Having said that.....few things are as exciting as walking around with a pocket full of money looking for a boat.
Enjoy!

So does it mean you underpriced your boat if the first person who looks at her buys her and you don't even get to write out a For Sale sign? I'm not happy, just resigned, she was a Great boat, and I'll miss her. The family just got too big. Sold Hans Christian 34T Lueza.

Lol, probably. Mine was on the market for over 6 months but in this market, that's reasonable and I guess my price must have been about spot on.
