Big Blue

I was hot for this boat earlier this year but to be honest it was just too much boat for me. Boat has a huge cockpit and it very nicely tricked out. Not sure why she did not sell either. Price seems fair and I am sure there is still room.
I know the owner, he bought a big Tiara Express.

Tough to sell a boat, tough to get a boat loan, tough to get a deal done with a trade. Is the economy that bad? Probably part of the problem but I am sure there are people like me that if they could sell their boat would buy another the same day.

For me fuel burn kills this boat. 28gph at 18 knots is double what I do now. It's a sweet boat for sure though, I was next to her years go when he original owner had her built and it dwarfs most 45's.

I would agree that the fuel burn really hurts the sale, it turns a poor canyon trip to a very expensive boat ride. But it makes for a very nice condo anchored out in BI for the summer.

What you would be saving on building this boat would easily offset the poor fuel economy.
Not to mention, what are we really talking. 10 gallons an hour x an average of 150 hours a year?
All I'm saying is an extra $5000 per season in fuel would take a long time to add up to what it would cost to build new

I will agree but you know how it goes with boats, people always bite off more than they can chew.

Nice Boat

Big Blue is one hell of a nice boat - it looks great in pictures and even nicer in person. Loved admiring that boat at the Montauk Yachtclub.

Economy is tuff but the cost of materials always seems to go up. We have been in such a low rate environment for so long that inflation has to rise and if it does, I would expect the cost of materials to increase at a faster pace which equates to a new build being even more expensive.

FUEL BURN!! My friend runs a 42 and it loves fuel. It also loves to sit on the anchor.. So it is a toss up but the fuel burn is tough when it will easily be 4 to 5 bucks a gallon. The boat looks nice in the pictures.

Who only averages 150 hrs a year?
It would be a crime for a rig like to that to sit at the dock that much.
