My girlfriend and I live aboard our sailboat, but are planning on buying
a small (less than 12M) powerboat to cruise
the canals and rivers of Europe
in the summer months.
I am looking for advice on dependable dutch steel boat
manufacturers and what boat
models to avoid.
I've heard from a Dutch charter
boat operator to avoid Peugeot diesels, and probably DAF diesels as parts
are scarce. Does anyone have further information on whether this is sound advice or not?
Since our budget
is limited, we are looking at older steel
boats, but want to make sure we get a boat from a reputable manufacturer.
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
