The information that was posted beside boat looked very promising. Just right length. Just right age. We had already agreed that this boat make was good quality. An inflatable dinghy with motor and seawise electric lifting system was also included. The boat also had a GPS and all trimmings. But price, could it be correct? It seemed a bit low for this particular yacht. You guessed it! The twin engine system was gas, not diesel. This was reason for excellent price.
We thought that we had found perfect boat! In fact we had except for one very expensive item. For those of you who own your own boat, you can related to expense of a gas engine yacht. Gas engines are fast and great for skiing and lake touring in small boats, but on ocean and in a large yacht, cost can be prohibitive. (Note: Recently diesel prices and gas prices have moved closer together.)
So once again, our search begins in earnest. And once again, there are no boats for sale. Or is that just our take on situation? Surely boat for us is just out there waiting to be discovered!
