A twin engined boat of that size with all of the communications and safety / rescue gear on would be easily around that sort of price - how much do you think the RNLI boats are?

The cost for an Atlantic 85 is 125K. I'd still buy one though if (a) they were for sale and (b) I had the money.

Cheers

Mariner 5 (Arctic 28?) used for anti terrorism in Portsmouth harbour cost something ridiculous like 250k. She is a very sexy looking boat though.
