better than new or expensive new used ones
In recent years, with the support of our cooperation partners, we have been looking for yachts tailored to their needs and requirements for our customers. Age is relative. This shows the following example:
Raffaelli 48, built 1998, engines functional, purchase price 55.000 €
3 cabins + 1 single bunk behind the kitchen, flybridge, cockpit, sun deck bow, bow and stern thruster, 2 control stands.
Within 3 months all hoses were replaced, the engines overhauled, shaft seal renewed, various paints, electrics supplemented or modernized, the wood inside revised, new 1st class mattresses, kitchen rebuilt, surfaces with refined, carpets renewed, navigation partially renewed, sea valves replaced, etc..
Cost of the refit 25,000 €
Result of a beautiful, spacious yacht, which drives itself sparingly in displacement mode and when its necessary she drives with 28 knots away from bad weather. A safe yacht, without any problems to compare with a modern 55 / 60 foot yacht.
For the price of 80,000 €
You will lose this price on a new, comparable yacht in the first 1 to 2 years. A yacht that is max 10 years old would still cost 250 -350.000 € and this would then be in the rarest of cases in a perfect condition, plus you still lose about 5-10% per year. On the other hand, the “classic” remains relatively stable in terms of price.
Write us what you want, what your budget is and we’ll see what we can conjure up for you.
