As posted depends ln how you outfit the boat
, but as an example: A friend with a $200K budget
recently purchased a Lagoon
38 for $160K from Dream Yachts Charters. It was in excellent condition and required no significant repairs
, but it did need a bottom job. Seller did some minor repairs
as part of the deal. Dinghy/outboard not included and were not what new owner wanted anyway.
So his refit
included: bottom job, outboard
, dink (nice alum Highfield), Spectra watermaker
, tethers/jacklines, Type V PFDs, dive tank compressor
, new SCUBA gear
for 2, new chart plotter (old one was tiny and aging), new trampoline, RADAR
, full set of tools, cookware, plates/bowls/utensils/etc, bed
clothes x 4 cabins, towels, upgraded solar
I dont know the final number, but if you start doing the math he punched a big hole in the remaining $40K.
The upside to buying
a cruising boat
is that it will be outfitted with a lot of gear
already. Charter companies want charter boats kept simple.
