Since you don't sound very experienced, find the best surveyor you can or your chances of getting burned are quite high. A fair market value is included in the survey report.

Re: Husband fell in love with an 1978 Ericson Mark II 35.5

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

I don't know what that means, "tonnage" cannot be converted to pounds.

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

There is no such thing as "international registry" or "international tonnage measurement". You must go by the rules of the country you will register her in..... which you still have not told us.

Re: Tonnage Measurement Beneteau Oceanis 350 Year 1988

It is still a "Tonnage Measurement" (survey) just a "Simplified Method" of measurement without the need of a "Tonnage Measurer" (Me :))
