I am also following this thread with interest. I am currently trying to buy a boat from Sunsail.
negotiations took a while but we finally had a deal that included a delivery
date of the end of August and subject to the final surveyors report. So we signed the contract
and paid our deposit.
Things have kind of gone down hill from there. I am not sure if this is a normal Sunsail / Moorings / Tui type of problem or if our experience is unique.
According to Sunsail they have an internal paperwork problem that prevents them from starting the Phase Out until October. And apparently the boat will be used until that time.
They still have the boat advertised for sale
on the Sunsail Brokerage site with an availability date of June 2016
I am kind of caught between the rock and a hard place as we do want this boat however cant wait until November as we have charters already booked for October so now may have to find another boat. We also dont really like the idea of the boat being used after we have put a deposit down on it.
I'll post a follow up if we manage to get somewhere with Sunsail or if we end up buying
