At the moment I am in the process of buying
an aluminium yacht and will choose from Allures/Garcia/Boreal. It will be an electrified one with Oceanvolt and the whole bunch of genset, solar
Most favorite is the Boreal but I see some indication that the level of finishing is not that great. Last week I attended the open day at KM Yachtbuilders and that convinced me for one of the three other ships.
But, I started this thread for something different. The aluminium prices at the moment (sept 2021) are at 'moon-level'. Which means sky high. Almost as high at the moment just before the crisis of 2007 and onwards.
Now USD 2926/tonne and in 2008 around USD 3030/tonne.
In feb 2009 this price
came down to USD 1250/tonne.
What will the impact be on the purchase
prices of aluminium for those mentioned ships? Does anyone know how this works for those companies on the buying
side of aluminium?
If I compare the prices of those yachts over the last 5 years, they came up very very quickly. Add to that the insane labor wages in Europe
