new to this lark but looking to buy a brand new broads cruiser with a mate and use it / hire it out whenever possible - is this doable ? where is the best place to go to buy one, looking for something very modern and sleek with at least 6 berths - all help welcome please !!!!
It's certainly doable but don't think you are going to make much money
There are however other things to think about If you are going to hire at all this needs to be known in advance because although the build would be to RCD standards it also needs to comply to CORGI landlords as well. More important you will need to work out who is going to manage it and from where. Most private yards to be blunt are not going to be interested. Existing fleets where it might be based are not going to be keen to see you getting perferential treatment. The other problem is that if someone is dealing with the booking for you unless you make your own arrangements well in advance you are likely to find it is booked when you might want to use it.
It might be worth talking to Silverline although thier designs might not be sleek enough for you alternatively talk to one of the syndicate operators they might be interested in doing something on the lines of letting you a 30% share in the use of such a boat.
