Ever wonder where Seariders go to die?

In Denmark apparently there's a place where, according to legend, older Seariders instinctively direct themselves when they reach a certain age. They would then die there alone, far from the group.

Been there, tried to buy an old delta 5.5 with twin yamaha's but hideously expensive. Wanted full retail money for a boat with no trailer

I hadn't got around to finding out prices, just assumed that being ex standby boats frc's they'd be cheap. I worked in the industry years ago and the boats got thrashed.

It costs nothing to ask. They wanted around £10k for an old FRC Delta without trailer. Seen them for half that in this country. Denmark is not cheap for boats. Grenaa is a nice place though. Worked there for a while.

Most will have had a hard life. Similar set up here but on smaller scale, in Ellon, Aberdeenshire. The irony is half these boats operated out of Aberdeen. https://nwtandco.com

The Narwhal 4.8 is a nice set up, bit spenny at £4800 though!

Yeah, they had a nice SR6 in stock last year which a few forum members were interested in. I think Bushrider got it in the end.

I got some prices from them not so long ago. Generally SR6s with no engines are €2650 and the ones with engines around €6500.
