I'm having trouble finding info on Boatex or the avg cost
I absolutely fell in love with this Boatex 1200 a 12' sail/motor/oar multipurpose dinghy.
The problem is that I cannot find any information on what to offer as far as price goes. I don't want to pay too much then find out the insurance company won't reimburse me in the even of a theft or loss.
In fact, is there a way to get a hold of the database insurance companies use for this kind of thing?
Here is the info I have about it if anyone can help:
2006 Boatex 1200
Sail kit (great shape) Includes all lines, centerboard, tiller
Trailer 2006 nothing fancy, just new.
Johnson (2005 I believe) outboard 8 HP perfect condition with 10 hours
Extra stuff like oil, fuel cans, bits and pieces (the usual used boat stuff)
Everything is new. I can't explain in words how good it all looks, but it all gleams, no scuffs, spots, cracks in the wood decks, nothing.
The dealer is asking $7500.00 which I think is astronomical, but perhaps the trailer and motor add value? I've seen the boat only with sail kit for $2100 offered elsewhere on the internet. I've checked NADA and came up with a value of about $1900 for the trailer, and $1000 for the motor.
There is no information on Boatex, no website, no dealers, not listed in NADA guides, and so on... The entire problem is that this is exactly what I wanted in a dinghy/tender for my big sailboat, and I've never came across anything like it before, so it captured me instantly. I loved the design, layout, structure, colors, wood decks and how it all put together to use any features at any moment. My other tender, an 8' el toro needs to be "converted" with about 10 minutes of work to go from motor to sail, and back or over to rowing, This does it instantly, as it can carry everything all at once.
I reject your reality and substitute my own.
