From the previous thread about boats being so expensive in Australia and the examples of $180k boats listed for $700K it would seem possible?
I could not think of a nicer way to make a good income
for a year!
We are finalising on a second hand Lagoon 44 ex USA taking delivery
in the New Year.
We plan to sail the Virgins and Pacific for three or four years.
Believe me making money
out of buying
and selling boats is nigh on impossible, iv'e been building them for a long while and the only money
iv'e made is in real estate, our purchase
will be some 300k cheaper than the equivelent Aussie boat maybe just maybe we might sell back in Australia in 5 yrs time and cover costs.
Aussie mining boom ain't going away real soon i can tell you that!!!!!
