I didn't think Mr Fishy was poetic.

"An anonymous Hove poet left a poem on several car windscreens telling drivers to leave or go to f***ing hell."

I test sailed the Hanse 388 today. [eng1.gif]

It was ok... but I'm looking for a boat I can sail on my own. You can't really with this :think:

I saw a gunfleet 43 today. Didn't have a go on it :crying:




This boat is way out of my price range. New there around 500k, second hand 350k :shock:

What's really starting to annoy me is there no frking washing machines or dryers on them. Even when you spend 500k on one [eusa_naughty.gif]

After a week at time watching boat vids and test saling a few, the one I'm going for is a Corsair 760.




It's a good fast weekend sailer for £80,000 + vat :woot:

Quote:
Bottom Line
The factory publishes the list price in U.S. Dollars. The base price for the Corsair 760 is $69,999, and customers in the U.S. might see a sail-away cost for a Corsair 760 starting in the range of $85,000 - $97,000 USD including delivery, import duty, trailer and motor. (not including local sales tax)


The boat folds up and goes on a trailer. They tell me it takes 60 mins to set up......so I'm thinking 4 hours :blush:

The Corsair is similar to my old lazer, I can drop it in the water and sail same day. Fast too hitting 18-24 knots. At 5.5 meters wide means its going to be stable most of the time :winedrinker:

No boat lifting fee's and easy to store. :rarrr:





Lets me honest here, I'm not going around the world. All I want is coastal sailing with an kettle and bathroom. Maybe the odd trip to the IOW or France. :think:

Up keep of a bigger boat is a waste of money for me, I'm a fair weather sailor and will head into port if I run out of toilet paper. :blush:

And for me that's the key to buying a yacht, buy a boat you will use, not a dream. If you want to sail in far away places, fly out and hire a boat there the same way you would hire a car. [thumbsup.png]

I got the corsair 880 in the end. It's a bit more money and a little slower on the water, but its more space and far better equipped.

They're putting in a battery bank space, gas bottle storage area and a water tank. Installing solar panels and all the "up to date" nav stuff.

Generator upgrade for the batteries and diesel tank. The gas powered shower too. And will meet the "ce" requirements.

After sitting down and costing the 760 v 880, with all the options there was only a few thousand in it.

I was always aiming for a fast electric boat and going green is never cheap. [9n5.gif]

Expensive hobby!

The price was around 136,000 with vat, and I got a really good deal :proud:

After looking at second boats, the Corsair's have good resale value too. :whee:

Once I've fittered the boat out to "clean water requirements", it can go anywhere including the lochs or lakes, not just the channel. :biggrin:

My overall spend will be around 150-160k in total. It's going to need another 20k worth of extra. I've got to find someone in Vietnam to monitor the build on my behalf and ensure works done correctly too. [9n5.gif]

Yachts are an expensive hobby, trailer boats aren't. Take it from me, after looking at lifetime costs this was the best option :winedrinker:

I've got an email from Corsair :rolleyes:

They want to know what size engine I'm going to mount and the number of batteries.

I'm going with the Cruise 10.0 TS with a list price of £8.349,00



High-performance lithium Power P24-3500 batteries are £2.599,00 each
Fast charger is £ 1.599,00
Solar charge controller Power24-3500 is £299,00

The total is 10k for the batteries (4)
Another 10k for the engine and chargers.

https://www.torqeedo.com/en/products

It's what I priced it at before buying the boat.

I've send them a link to torqeedo website so they can see how much space is required.
