(Roughly), 35K to East Coast and 70K to West Coast for shipping.

Most of these boats are quoted in Euros on (non Yachtworld) broker sites but quoted in US dollars on Yachtworld. In the last three years they have essentially gotten 20% cheaper as the Euro has fallen from 1.35US/Euro to around 1.15US/Euro. These things seem like very good values to me.

Hmmmm, I wonder how many boat I can buy and ship to the US and then sell at a profit.... Not a big profit, just enough to provide me a good selection for me to choose my next boat, selling the other, not at a loss.

Art, The fuel burn number of over 2 gallons tells me the owner always pushes the boat hard from the standpoint that historically, hull speed with this Gardner should be in the neighborhood of 1.5 gallons. Maybe folks knowledgeable on the six cyl. Gardner will confirm or conclude. Nice boat, doesn't need to be driven that hard if it were mine to control.

My friends Gardner 6 runs at 1 gallon a hour @800rpm and 5 gallons a hour @ 1400rpm ?? He says 1.5 at WOT is #$%&

Nice boat but unrealistic price IMHO. Been on YW for years.

She started at at $250000 years ago.... Unless your search criteria included that price range in a single screw vsl, you missed it. I know your relatively new on the forum , so may have not put those search parameters in YW search?
Don't get me wrong, its a really nice boat but a hard sell for fiberglass over wood vsl. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it if it fit my criteria, just think its overpriced and broker and owner are fishing for a buyer..

To add to Dan's inquiry.



I would also be interested in knowing what kind of hoops one would have to jump through to get a Euro boat reg'd and insured inthe US. I know a lot of electrical would need to be changed over to 110 volts from 220. That's the easy part for me though. The legalities is where I would hang myself.
