Unfortunately, from the OP's profile, it doesn't appear they ever signed back onto the board since this was originally discussed. Too bad.

Miami was traditionally an "open town", so it is arguably safe to assume that the dealer put out a contract on the buyer who was making so much trouble for them, and that Alex hasn't been back because he's been sleeping with the fishes.

HS,
That is pretty funny. Altho hopefully not true.

This person put a post on the jeanneau owners forum.... IIRC a one post wonder!

But it would be nice to know what happened...

Marty-
Obviously joking. After all, everyone knows that in Miami you dump 'em in the Glades, not in the bay. The watercops in Miami do not allow *anyone* to dump bodies in the bay.

It's a pity the OP never reported back. But has anybody considered this whole case being a hoax (either to victimize a particular dealer or the brand)? Could somebody compare the 3 pics shown with how a brand new keel and hull of SO 42 should look like?

I am quite new to this subject, but is at all possible to have such a bad paint job on a brand new, just delivered yacht? Also, is it normal that new yachts are delivered with 60-odd engine hours like the OP also mentioned in the thread?

Cheers,
Jan

sovereign, good point. The internet can be unreliable or sure. That's why I always suggest that we take everything we think we learn on forums as entertainment. If you think any of it is factual, just do homework on it first. Most does prove accurate, but don't play russian roulette.

That said, yachts are often transported over the ground with their keels removed and reinstalled and even a new yacht could appear in a boat show before its sold, thereby putting a few dozen hours on her to get there. The scenario is plausible, but we don't seem like we'll ever know if its true.

Thanks for throwing in the perspective, Minnewaska.

I've just recently seen a pre-owned 2007 DS (don't recall the exact size) for sale with just 90 or so hours on the clock. It seemed odd when knowing that half of it could've been clocked even before the yacht saw its first owner.

On a general note (hope I am not getting too OT), is hour meter rollback as common an issue as with used cars? Should one treat the value with utmost suspicion unless backed by maint. invoices and a surveyor report?

Can't say I've heard of rolling back the hours meter, but suspect it wouldn't be too hard to just disconnect one and run unrecorded hours.

I have a neighbor that bought a brand new boat that was tied up in bankruptcy somehow. Dealer inventory or something like that. He got a great deal, but had to wait for the courts to clear the sale. Could be something like that, given the proximity to this recession. Of course, it wouldn't be the first boat to be purchased and never really used much.
