Sourcing Repo Boats?
Thanks again to all those who have steered me in my quest for a power boat,you have been a great help.
I have been searching for the idea of maybe finding a repo'd boat hopefully for a very good price,somewhere in the US.I have found individual boats,and a few small auctions but thats about it.
I know there are databases for repo homes, usually county wide,but does anyone know of a similar thing for boats-or any other ideas concerning this topic?
Thanks in advance
I don't think there is a boat repo database,best bet to just keep looking for auctions.
-can you pilot it home reasonably...and $$$$$?
-can it be FOFO via Dockwise? IIRC roughly $15k for a 40' from US Gulf Coast to Vancouver/Seattle.
-can it be trucked? Width may not be as much hassle as height. Can you sawzall the flybridge off to make it legal height?
-look into duties and taxes.
-your costs in looking at it and getting a proper professional yacht survey
Unless you can absolutely steal the boat,be very careful.
