Costs Survey

Out of general interest and a chat me and my dad were having about upgrading to a bigger boat. Apart from the initial cost of the boat how much do people spend on other stuff throughout the year.

1.) Mooring Costs
2.) Fuel Costs
3.) General boating accesories bought
4.) Any other costs

Thanks

James

thats all licenses, insurance, running costs, tubes, upholestry, engine, electronics i think its about right. if you place 10-15% of your boats value by each year when the big things come like new engines tubes etc you have allowed for it. why what do you think is right i have run this principle on ribs to yachts of upto 150ft and it seems to work

Hmm, interesting formula, which I would have to agree with, marina, fuel and insurance being the 3 biggest bills (I hope)

fuel and marina are the biggest in the uk, i should compare when i am in NZ but mooring is an 7th of the price. think of all the bits and bobs you get during the year 50 here 50 there it all adds up, i bet i am spot on and the one everyone forgets to add is the depreciation on your investment, if you are good at buying and selling you should be abel to have what i call free boating.

rib say 20,000 10% is 2,000 which does not even cover the mooring fees

How big and how new?

I go through 100 every time it goes in the water-that's fuel for car + boat, slipway fees etc. God knows how much I spend on odds and bits but it's way too much Every time I go in a chandlers I relieve myself of at least 50. I'm kinda lucky the nearest proper chandlers is an hours drive away
