$15,000ish and have probably spent another $20,000 or so at home port and not done yet. Has only seen a few charters in her early days and none last 5-7yrs but still needs lots of TLC and in this size catamaran
it can cost.
Hi Aqua... I hope you don't mind me threadjacking for a second, but I had a couple of questions regarding your refit.
At the risk of sounding like an idiot.. what is "240vac"?
Regarding a/c... did you air condition the whole boat? or just the master hull
What kind of electrical work did you have to do? I see a lot of folks talk about having to refit electrical. Just wondering why so many people have to do that...what should I be looking for when shopping
as we want to minimize those refit costs.
You also said she needs a lot of TLC? that scares me a bit.
the reason why is that I think that's a pretty average price for that boat, it's not like you got it for a rock bottom basement price. It's about what I would expect to pay for a decent 440 in that age range. yet you say it needs a lot of TLC? can you tell me a bit about that? was it damaged? or not well taken care of?
again, sorry for the threadjack.. just saw an opportunity to learn something.
