Sorry about that. I have a price list for dealers in SAfrica and it shows that the 100bhp is about 4,000.
Will check and let you know why the increase. Possibly a typing mistake.
Yes this was cut and paste job

I do not think that you can compare aluminium with Glass Fibre boats.
In my opinion the former are stronger, the material is more expenssive and you need high tec equipment and qualified personnel to do the special welding.
In SAfrica labour costs are much lower that what they are in Europe or the US or Canada. Therefore, I suppose that the final product will have a lower price if it is produced there.

I think there must be a mistake on that price. Possibly a typping error. As I said before I have the list and is not that much

This is a copy paste job too

F100BETL SINGLE CONTROL 17"AL 4 ANA ANA 703 R86,700 and suggested max RSP R76,053.

The above price includes VAT and after you ttake vat off you can get up to 18% discount on the final export price.

Manos

You seem very good at quoting prices and specification, but have you actually ever bought an engine at these prices?

If so, how about posting a copy of an invoice for us all to take a look at! And how about letting us know what material costs are in SA compared to the UK, ie: Kilo prices of resin, csm, woven etc.

I may be wrong but you do seem to do rather a lot of backpedaling when it looks like you might have made a sale, as in the case of the drysuits for 50.00. So come, put up or shut up!

Manos,

Are the prices quoted for 2 stroke Yams for conventional or HPDI?

Cheers,
Alan

I don't want to disapoint you, but I think you will find that the words "cheap" and Drysuit" rarely appear together in the same sentence.

I would love to be proved wrong, but I think this could be be a lot of hot air, I wonder if Manos has ever considered taking up Balooning!!

I think not - the Rand is getting stronger by the day:
1.00 = R12.70

This makes a massive difference.
