Must be a rare sighting if only 18 were ever built.
Will let you know if a For Sale sign goes up.
I thought there were more, too, but the dragonfly.dk (i.e., manufacturer's) website said 18 were built between 2000 - 2007.

If you see that boat again, please put a note on it for me and refer the owners to this site if they would consider selling. :-) Thanks.

Went by the boat again today. The name was like Bella something.
Canít stop and leave a note, she is docked just East of the 3rd Ave bridge on the New River in Fort Lauderdale, narrow and High traffic area with strong currents.
Cannot stop on the water, but of course one could come back by foot on the sea-wall and say hello.
Ask me what my favorite brand of beer is..?

But first ask him how much the beer costs, how many times he's approached boat owners to see if their boats might be for sale, and how many times those approaches resulted in a sold boat!

Just kidding with you, I also would have asked if the $70 advert was worth it

I'd happily pay for a 6 or 12 pack of beer for someone getting information directly from the owner of a boat I was interested in. Hell, I'd throw in a nice cigar too, if the recipient would like it.

I don't mind paying for results........

Re: Dragonfly 1200

Thx gents.
Yes, beer and booze will open doors.
Quit smoking last June, cigars no good any more.
If you have a young sister however, I can be bribed..

"Young" is subjective. And she's got three kids........

Beer, booze, and I'll even buy you a steak dinner !! LOL.

My "younger" sister is 46. I'd stick with the food and drink.
