I suspect (like for most of us) the budget is the barrier. USD60k is around GBP32k at todays exchange rate. Shipping to the US is gonna be what GBP2-3k. Duties on import to the US? Dunno but reckon on some. So realistically you have a budget of 25kish to buy a big cabin rib in the UK. Not many around for that price I think!

To be fair I did say 2 or 3 thousand Pounds which is 4-5k USD. BAF on a 40ft container to Eastern US/Canada is around USD 560 (assuming you pay 100%) and I agree isnt going down anytime soon!
