One more Lavezzi Question

We thought we found the right boat for us - a 2006 Lavezzi 40 until we discovered that this boat has no holding tanks (despite them being listed in the inventory).

Does anyone out there have any experience with retrofitting holding tanks to the four cabin, two head charter version of this boat?

This is the second candidate we've found in the Caribbean with no holding tanks. Think of that next time you want to go for that refreshing morning dip in a Caribbean anchorage...

Re: One more Lavezzi Question

Holding tanks wouldn't be hard to retrofit, you can probably still source the OEM's from FP. Finding the right size/dimension tank for your space would be the hardest part.

FP normally installs a gravity system, i.e., no macerator pump required.

Not one of those. I'll post all the details once the deal goes through...

Re: One more Lavezzi Question

Or you could just buy THIS Lavezzi that was just listed. She definitely has sewage tanks. She was built at the factory to U.S. specs with sewage tanks, vented propane locker and U.S. electrical.

Wow,

At almost $50,000 more than I paid for a two year younger boat with a hard bimini and newer electronics, I think I can afford to plumb in a couple of holding tanks

(It seams that we got a very good deal on the boat we just bought.)

Re: One more Lavezzi Question

We all get great deals on the boat we just bought . In fairness to bry though, he did offer the same on CF before listing it with a broker for around the same as you paid. Unfortunately brokers take a fair chunk of change from the deal.

Re: One more Lavezzi Question

I removed my holding tank*, and have it here in Mississippi, 15 gallon, along with an electric macerating, as well as a manual, head. Make me a deal.


*I installed a composting head, so yes, I'm legal
