Re: Interesting Sailboats
Paulo, thanks for posting those images for the Oceano 54 ! I believe that dark blue one in the photo is on the market for EUR250k ! (lying Italy); given the used market today that's not entirely surprising but a good example of the headwinds facing the premium new boat market.
At 54 feet perhaps not a great comparison, but that's half the price of a new Hallberg Rassy 412 (incl. essential gear & tax) and we've all seen immaculate 10-15 year old yachts - well built, timeless lines and maintained/updated appropriately at very attractive prices.
That's a dilemma, esp. if one has EUR500k to commit to the "right" yacht but is equally happy to use half the budget. The "premium" new (production) boats seem like an attractive proposition - until you step aboard !
