I have read through many of the posts and wonder to myself why there are so many negative opinions of what other people post
Everyone thinks they have a boat
better than the next guy or girl, I certainly do
But the reality is you can buy a great fixer upper and/or investment for 20K, and you can buy a financial disaster for over 100k+
Those who are not capable or prepared to put in the time, or have just too much money
, don't buy a cheaper yacht. Almost any yacht can be repaired, and not at huge cost, but only if you are capable of DIY
, if not, don't bother, and possibly do not comment.
can be changed at possibly the highest cost, but still very reasonable. Interior
refurbish repair is only an expense in material and time and not expensive, plumbing/electrics are all fairly basic once you look into it, and can be fiddly but cheap DIY
All hulls apart from those effected by worm can be repaired, blistering is very, very common and in almost every case totally repairable unless you have no basic repair knowledge at all, or are too lazy.
is a boat, if you pay someone to repair it your enthusiasm will be broken. If you take the time to research
, inquire and get your hands dirty then almost nothing on a yacht is impossible to repair at reasonable or minimal cost.
I am slightly dismayed by the amount of members on this forum who seem to be boat owners, however have no knowledge about boats. If you can sail like an expert but are not a plumber/electrician/handyman/painter/carpenter all rolled into one and unwilling to have a go at repairing issues then you are just someone who owns a boat.
Everyone has a different reason for buying
a yacht. So 20k or 200k, it makes zippo difference if you love your yacht.
