I know they will probaly look at loads before either giving up or eventually buying one.
The plan currently is to use it for extended cruising and for holidays. They may move aboard at some point after either modifying or purchasing a brand new one.
I've encouraged them to buy an older boat first to get used to life aboard. This will also give them the chance to see what works and what does not for them.
Can I ask what you lot think of the above boat and what questions should I give them to ask? What top tips have you got to have a look for?
Personally I think it's a bit of a basic fit out but as they are retired doing work on her would not be an issue over time.
We are in Hampshire so the K&A is ideal to keep one on. or the GU as I have family in bucks and they have family in Leighton buzzard.
Thanks in advance.
If they are bothered about appearance that boat is in desperate need of a re-paint, it has faded in the exact same way our boat did (it was a similar colour) looking at he marks on the cabin side near the stove chimney it looks like the roof is going to need a paint too so you probably wont get away with just doing the cabin sides.
And I agree with LG - the layout is 'all to cock' - I know it's a personal thing but I don't like it all nor the fitout which looks like everything has just been chucked in at random.
Does the price look about right. Seems too much for me.
I don't think I would be offering anything over £30K for sure, possibly even less, if they do like it they can up their offer if they get knocked back, but people selling boats rarely (I believe anyway) get what they actually ask for (much like houses, cars etc etc).
They shouldn't be afraid of 'offending' any one with a cheeky offer, it's a business transaction after all.
On the other hand coming into a wetroom direct from the back is a better idea, especially in mucky weather as the wet clothes can be discarded without worrying about them getting soft crappy furnishings wet
If you love something, set it free, Unless its a Tiger

JohnV: There are other drugs but I haven't found the side effects with Ramipril to be bad, it seems to just make my throat a bit more sensitive so things that might have just tickled my throat and make me want to clear it now make me cough.

loddon: The cough is the only one I get from ramipril, although the combinatins of drugs I am on has interesting effects.
