This is the most favorable expectation in any negotiation. Each party should be a little disappointed with the money side of the deal, but excited by the change!
well said.

So pricing is likely a factor, but I believe there is something odd going on with the economy too. Why is no one even shopping (apart from Weavis that is)?
Nice boat and I wanna be your friend. How about 20k Euro and you ship it to Singapore - Just kidding.

Hope you get some bites soon.

I know a guy on my side of the pond who flew to Southampton, bought a Catalac 900 (40K sterling) and then paid $20K to ship it to America. So, I'm surprised these boats aren't as valued on your side of the pond, as they are over here. Then again, you guys have a lot more of them available. The American owner is ready to sell.

Keep in mind that the 8M, 9M and the 900 share the same exact hulls. I do believe the UK location would dictate the boats have the 'dog house' installed. Here in the tropics, the 'dog house' greenhouse effect is not desirable.
