Thanks!! That was quick lolol
Any way I think that the price is a VERY BIG
stopper as well as the 2 berth cabin. 4 berth (for my needs) would had been better.
The boat looks good
and I assume that is now seaworthy after the face lifts. It must have some short of certification or something!!
The pitfalls of the boat for me (only a personal opinion) on this one are:
I hear what you say about the best wiring, fittings etc that money can buy. I have done my research and wiring, switches, fibre glass and Hypalon tubes don't cost as much as people think they cost. i.e. ORCA Hypalon for a 10 mtr boat inc fitting will cost you £5,000 the very maximum with double padding.
I have collected a price list for all the materials (1st class materials and the BEST
you can get ranging from fibre glass to switches and waterproof carpets and upholstery) one uses to build a RIB and it looks that if you exclude engines, labour cost and profit for a RIB with Net Hull Weight of say 2,500 kgs it shouldn't be more that £15,000 or near this figure give or take £2-3,000 (cost of materials ONLY for full spec inc anchor winch, chains, anchors, ropes, lights, VHF, GPS, A-frame, bimini, sink, hot cold pressurised water, generator, air con, shore power supply, 2(+1 spare) engine bats and 1 domestic bat, hydraulic steering system, steering wheel, cockpit visor, fw and fuel tanks etc etc and ex engines)
the very maximum. So one should expect to pay something like between £25-£30,000 for a new 10 mtr hull ex engines.

3. SEA KEEPING
I think is good too and due to the narrow beam much better from the MOSTRO I'm interested in I recon. Will try to see if I can get onboard a 7.50 SCORPION for a ride when I'm in Greece next week. But as I said is an expensive boat so.......
Any way I think I said enough about this and possibly I may have upset a few people and I am truly sorry if I did. Is just that when I fork out of my pocket a large lump sum of money to buy something being a bicycle or a boat I want to know that I got the best value for money there is.
