hmmm tasty!

Have to say that if I ever did have that kind of money to spend I'd buy a grandbanks http://www.grandbanks.com/yachts/her...eu/gallery.cfm
Been in love with them for years.

I do like the Grand Banks range but there are some British built boats just as good if not better.

http://www.aquastar.gg/

Really nice boats.

Also the Hardy range. The RNLI use a Commodore 42 for training.

My dad loves Aquastar's. Very solid boats. Have heard very good things about Hardy too but never been on one. Reason I like Grandbanks is because of the Trawler look.

Have a look at these then

http://www.nordhavn.com/

My favourite trawler yachts.

To be honest though for the same money as a 64' Nordhavn you could get this. 95' and 150 tons of sheer elegance and if the sails are too much like hard work she will do 3000 miles at the same speed as a Nordhavn under engine.

Oh those Nordhavn look quality! Although cosmetically blander than the grandbanks they seem to have a better spec.

The sail is nice too but I'd feel more at ease throwing the motorboats into rough seas. If I did it with the sail boat I'd be thinking about how long it will take me to clean the sails and brass work when I got back to the dock.
Can't beat sailing for that no engine, natural feel.
Good taste codders
Anyone got the right 6 numbers for Saturday?

Have you seen the size of the tanks on some of those big boys ! 4000L + at how much per litre ? Thats errr - a whole other RIB ! just for gas ! WOW

I'd still like to be in a position where I 'had' to spend 4k filling up the tanks.

Yeah, it's beyond belief what they use.
No comparison but my dad has a Princess with two Ford marina engines. Can't for the life of me think what ltr they are at the moment coz I've got that much going around in my head with the searider. I know they're 6ltr + though. He loves them as they are the same block as in the trucks he used to drive in his younger days Anyway when he bought it in 2002 it cost around 250-300 to fill the twin tanks, which dropped everyones yaw at the time. That's now gone through the roof to well over a grand. So it doesn't get used much anymore.
To fill any of the yachts above, and use like you'd want to you'd have to be on the kind of money where even footballers ask you to buy them a pint!

These boats are pretty fuel efficient. They will do as much as 4,000 miles on this amount of fuel. A similar Sunseeker or other planing craft will do about 400 miles on the same amount!!!

Most boats this size will be commercial - used for charter etc - so you will pick up red diesel pretty cheap. When you buy that much you will pay bunker rates which are approx $450 per tonne. That works out at $0.38 per litre or about 0.25 which means a full tank will cost you 1,000. Not bad for 4000 miles and a lot cheaper to run than a RIB!!!

its easier if its someone elses companies credit card
3 day deliveries to holland from liverpool and vica versa. 2008 - 50 foot cat 2,600 litres each day except one particularly very long day at 3,600 litres.
2007 - 60ft cat 3,000 litres each day. Best conversation was between a certain marina and daughter who skippers these things. A very patronising guy on the radio trying to persuade this girlie (women know nowt!)that she meant 260 litres madam-nobody has 2,600 litres. Then he saw the boat as we approached and had a sudden attitude change
