Schionning cat in South Florida??

Does anyone know of a Schionning cat in South Florida. I am heading down there to look at cats and would like to see a schionning in person even if it is not for sale.

Any non-USA built vessel which has never paid USA Customs duty, or a USA built vessel that has been exported and is currently foreign flagged, can not be offered for sale or charter to US citizens while in USA waters until making a formal USA entry.
USA duty, assessed at 1.5% of the appraised value, is a one time taxable event. A duty free formal entry can be made if duty had previously been paid and can be proven with a receipt or a returning USA built vessel.

I just got back from Ft Lauderdale, I toured the Schionning 43 that's down there. It's a fine boat, a few repairs needed, but overall in good shape. Write me if you want to hear more.

Re: Schionning cat in South Florida??

I saw the boat in Nov. It is a nice boat. The paint was good no stress cracks. The decks were very solid. It sat well on its lines. One plexi window was cracked. The steering position is the big issue. That is what tanked the deal last year from what I heard. Also, the cockpit roof extends quite far back and you have to step up out of the cockpit. This make you have to step up and bend over at the same time (very awkward). The paint is nice in the saloon, but the forward cabin has carpet on the walls.

Re: Schionning cat in South Florida??

It was the steering position that took it off of our list. The Grainger in Florida had the same problem of having to look through the house to see forward.
