Ours was not plush etc though had everything needed in it, but it was tired both inside and out and we knew we had a lot to do cosmetically on it, and bought it with a budget to carry out the work to do this.
And when we were viewing this we put great emphasis with the yard on our situation, yes we could take on a boat that needed cosmetic work but we could not take on a boat that turned out to be in need of expensive repair work...anyway the rest is history

Lets try and simplify things..

There are 3 separate issues here to be considered.

1, seeking restitution from the clearly dishonest and morally barren seller.

2,getting the remedial work completed.


you have two choices with #1,  pursue in an appropriate manner.
or  forget it and move on. having learnt an important lesson.

#2 repair the boat to an acceptable standard.

#3 sell the boat for as much as you can get.

it has little bearing what others may or may not do,in this unfortunate situation. [myself included]

we all know you been had over. as many have said, nearly all second hand boats require remedial work of varying levels,  the only way to avoid this is to order a new one.

only you can make the next move.
good luck with whatever you decide.




my appearance is down to me, my attitude is down to you.

Strowager, ten years, doesn't seem possible! You have been missed, I think!! Wink

Re jerry-built hire cruisers, back in time, many were built to last only so long and with no thought whatsoever of eventual sales to the private sector, or still being afloat some forty years later.

Many moon,s ago I worked at Jenners of Thorpe the yard which was next to the Town House Hotel not the yard at bungalow lane.
We were fitting out Elesyian 35s centre cockpit 3 of us plus an engineer (when he wasn’t on call outs) would fit out 1 every 5 weeks I think we did 6 they were literally thrown together ,but they did the job.,we did everything except for a bought in settee which converted to a double bed .

Strowie,

Welcome back. I think it's been 8 years since your last post. Where has that time gone?!   Gasp

If you do go down the route of a full rebuild be wary of the storage costs, out of the water in side a shed is likely to cost around £400 per month for a 40+ fit boat.  

In a nutshell
The Moore the merrier.

According to their website, storage on the hard at Wayford Marine would cost £602 for 6 months for your 43 foot boat.
