Just have to get a few more bucks together for a decent down payment,
Maybe my brother will agree with a 75/25 partnership? :clapping:

Do you think your brother could come up with the 25 then? :laugh:

Impeccable; barring that (IMHO) it just needs a splash of colour ... just somewhere ... anywhere on the hull.

We all expect an invite for cheese and wine (and champagne) when the purchase is done.

:whisper: Bob, as well as a splash of colour, you might also want to consider just a trifle larger outboard motor! :flee:

That little "kicker" is a bit deceiving but of course, that
is only for the dinghy when you can't get a berth deep enough for the boat or the marina doesn't have concierge service. So you throw out the hook and motor in to complain to the manager :clapping:

Now Rudi, any respectable boat only is all white, not any gaudy other color. Poo poo. :evilgrin:

When you christen the boat with a champagne bottle, I'll ensure that the bottle secretly contains some luminous paint. :evilgrin:

Note to self:
Scratch Rudi off invite list. If not, have him drink some of the champagne first. :laugh:

Please tell us more about this beauty, Bob!

What are here loa, woa, draw, displacement?

Who designed her?

Who built her?

When do you take delivery?


I assume that, as she is afloat, the launch has taken place so no champagne is required except for imbibing; and I'm certain we can rely on Claude to provide a super-sufficiency of Moët & Chandon for the christening party.

She seems to have adequate room for a comfortable lounge (salon). Of course, she MUST be christened "Eileen!"

Is there room for a wine cellar in there ? If not, get rid of it A.S.A.P. IMHO :smile:

Bob, I'm surprised you even looked at that one - it doesn't seem to have a helipad:

It has never been a secret that the Lounge income is a nice round figure...
