Thank you for advices
I agree with you that showing the boat in Australia would be easier for selling her. It's not a long crossing (less than one week) from NC to Brisbane
However, I can't go there with the boat, because now I have advertised for her, australian customs
ask me to pay for the import taxes
right at the arrival, before I can even show the boat. That's a shame, but it's a lot of money
. I don't know how to turn around this (I don't think these taxes
are refundable if I leave without selling?).
It's not such a long way to come and visit us in Nouméa (I think it's shorter to go from sydney
to Noumea than from Sidney to Cairns). Checking the boat can be done in one week end. We will provide accommodation on board and we will refund a plane ticket on the sale price
We will also do the sale
under australian law, with a bilingual (french english) broker.
has been adjusted to be atractive to anybody that know this type of aluminium boat: 122000AU$ (check the price of an OVNI
of same size/age, it's usualy around 200000 AU$)
But clearly, you really need to want such a boat to come and see us.
