How much pre-payment is requested if the lead time is so long and when has the full sum to be paid?
Best Regards,
It' quite straightforward, Ulf.
The next available hull number is reserved after a pre-payment of around 4%, which is almost fully refundable until six months before they start building the boat. Then follow fractional payments, with the last 30% due on delivery.

To be honest, I must somewhat clarify the delivery in april 2012. We could already have the boat around november this year. I certainly don't mind a winter sailing trip, but we prefer not to spend two weeks test-cruising in Brittany and then sail the boat back to Belgium in december. After all, we're cruisers...

Best regards,
