De Groot 20 meter

Does anyone know anything about this boat? Probably too much boat for me but it's a lot of boat for the money!

Looks like a lot of boat for the money. Lack of side decks makes it a docking challenge, but I don't know if that's a significant concern. Everything I've heard and read about Dutch steel boats has been favorable. Something doesn't seem right with the price. Worth a look if you're shopping.

The lack of listing details, no ER pictures and condition of the flybridge gives me pause. If you had an interest might I suggest obtaining more current pictures and details of any insurance claims.

If you do look at the boat take a friend along who knows what and where to look for to assess required steel work going forward. Try not to focus on "lot of boat for the money" but rather money going forward to get the vessel cruise ready. Good luck

Commercial , oil patch yards are common in Texas.


You might visit one to get a surveyor that knows steel boats , most surveyors have no idea about steel.

The listing is certainly lacking for a vessel of this size/capability. Has the listing “broker” been to the boat. Most could write more about a 23 Sea Ray.

Consider cost of ownership and an exit strategy before moving forward.

Cost of ownership is my main concern, probably triple that of my 37'.

Can hardly wait to hear what Eric “Manyboats” has to say about that bottom configuration.
