. In short I would not buy a boat here for one more reason they are way overpriced. Maybe due to the old import
tax on boats. Now it's only 7%
With the negitive out of the way here is a BIG positive. I was looking at a bost in langkwai. The broker was friendly professional AND honest. He knew the boats he has listed. I csn tell you if I deal with a broker it will be him.Plus the price
of boats is about half. Ill get you his name if you like..
Yes I have been to Thailand many times and I know what your talking about. I'm sure there are legit companies there, but there are also many snakes. Best way around this is word of mouth. The company I did my sailing lessons
was really good, however i wouldn't buy a boat from him he seems like your typical used car salesman, and he's not Thai.
Please send me the details of any contacts you have in Langkwai. From my limited research
the boats in Langkwai are not cheaper than Thailand, however I have not been looking for long. I need to go to Langkwai to check things out. Boatshed in Phuket seems to get good recomendations...

That was my thinking. With all the extras I want it is going to cost a lot of money
to fitout a ~$120k boat. In australia
maker is $9500, 12000 btu AC$5500. I am concerned with over capitilising a boat with all the extras. It would be great to find something with at least some of the extras I want. I think the plan is to be on the ground with cash in hand ready to pounce on a good deal.
Does anyone know what this type of gear
costs in Langkwai, specifically quality global brands of generators, water
makers, AC, inverters, autopilots?
Sorry for all the questions, but I'm just trying to get all my ducks in a row before I strike.
Heres one I found in thailand, however it is a 3 cabin and doesn't have many extras Beneteau Cyclades 39 for sale, 11.99m, 2007 | BoatshedPhuket.com
