i live in France and i recently bought a ribcraft in UK, i bought this boat from a broker.
soon as i came back to France, i went on the water with the boat.
the engine , shut off after we leave the shore , hopefully we were 2 on the boat.
it was quite hard to came back.
For this first run i use the internal tank (i fill it with 50 l of fuel).
before to buy the boat, the engine was running good, but it was tested with a small portable tank, broker said there was no fuel in internal tank.
After i came back on the shore i've notice there was water in the engine, and plenty (hundreds of liters of fuel and water into the boat:
obviously there was a hole in the internal tank.
i had tp pay 150€ to make the engine run again, i phone the broker and told him he should have told me about the internal tank, i asked him to pay for a new, he didn't want claiming it was the previous owner responsabilty.
Then, i ask ribcraft about the year of the boat, they told me 1993, and ask mariner about the engine year: 1993 too.
The broker sold me this boat and engine 1999 one's, it's written on the brokerage document.
now , i want this broker to take his responsabilities (but which are they?) and totally refund me ,
as i'm french , i don't know much about broker's responsability in such a case, can you please help?
thanks for any help and support,
