I have no show prices for Redbay/Tornado or any of the other similar show boats, ie: Ribcraft, Excalibur, etc. This is why I am asking in the hope that somebody will let us know what kind of prices are being advertised at the show.
The reason I think €44770 (€37000 & VAT) is a bit steep is that I've been quoted €33500(inc. VAT) for a 6.5m Tornado w/150 Optimax (This includes all the usual kit: console, seating, Icom VHF, A-frame, double axle trailer, full set of covers, hydraulic steering, etc, etc.) To be fair the quote doesn't include a GPS Chartplotter/ Sounder so add €2000 to that price to budget for them. Also the quote wasn't a "show price".
So I suppose what I am asking is why should a prospective owner (my friend) buy a 6.3 Parker w/135 Opti instead of the 6.5 Tornado w/150 Opti.
I am trying to source the best package for my friend and would like to explore all options. Stuart, obviously I would not expect you to discuss quotations on a public forum so can you e-mail/PM me please?
Also how does the Parker compare to the Lencraft you had as my friend is trading up from a 6.5 intruder.
