I make these extras c £36k working on today's exchange rate.

I presume delivery and getting it on the water to be added. "Commissioning"- whatever that is. Perhaps AKA "unwrapping".

£111k for a (nearly) new 35ft yacht.

TBH, I thought it sounded good but I'm not THAT interested, unless an expert here can tell me why I should be. I imagine depreciation will be like a cliff edge. And who does one contact if a piece of it falls off when under guarantee?

But, as far as I can see, that's still a lot less than a new Jeanneau 349. Or am I missing something here? Like few people in their right m ind buy a new yacht; same as cars really. I see that Sea Ventures seem to be offering a Jeanneau 349 for c £126k, but don't know what that includes.

Build quality is nothing like the main marques. We looked at the demo boat they had at SIBS a couple of years ago, and there were some horrendous quality control issues like lockers that didn't close properly, and panels that had no edge finishing.
