Harris Flotebote – Sunliner 200

| Boats | September 15, 2013

Spending time outdoors and going out to enjoy the sea can be a great activity for the whole family or even when you need to spend some time with yourself. If you are a fishing enthusiast you will probably love to have your own boat that you can take far away and fish in complete silence. Also, let’s not forget the cool parties you can throw on a really large yacht, either for a special event or simply as a get-together during the weekend. If you find one or more of those activities interesting, you should probably consider buying a yacht; they are not as expensive as most people believe and they have become quite popular lately due to the fact that people are probably trying to escape their city life by doing something completely relaxing and enjoyable.

Just imagine the sunshine on your face while you spend time on the wide yacht that has an overall length of 22’1”, a beam width of 8’6”, a weight of 2409 and a capacity of 12 people maximum. This makes it perfect for excursions or hanging out with the family during the weekend while trying to escape the hectic city life. Also, it comes with two floor plans one standard and one with a single rear lounger and obviously the colors everybody is accustomed with: Black Sapphire, Midnight Blue, Sandy Pearl, Royal Garnet, and Blue Opal. You can even order graphics for each of the colors if you want a custom design to stand out from other yachts. Also, if you are buying your yacht for fishing you should definitely consider the fishing package that contains a fish finder with a depthsounder, a fish finder with GPS and a livewell that is aerated; it will definitely enhance your fishing experience for you and your friends.

A lovely way to spend free time, the Harris Flotebote Sunliner 200 is not a luxury cruise yacht so if you are having extremely high expectations regarding it, you will definitely be disappointed. It is a boat that can be bought by almost anybody who just wants to go out in the sea, but not something for those with a more decadent taste.

Cobalt Boats – 26SD

| Boats | February 3, 2013

When it comes to small yachts you can definitely trust the Cobalt 26SD to fulfill your needs. It is definitely not a boat that you can choose for long trips but it will serve its purpose if you want something to explore the sea with from time to time or just relax with your friends while fishing.

With a length of about 27’6”/8.38 m, a beam of 8’6”/2.6 , weight of 5500 lbs/2495 kg this is definitely a small yacht that is perfect for those summer excursions with a few friends. Of course, it’s not for the adventurous type that wants to spend days on sea but definitely suitable for an unforgettable outing with your family. The deadrise is about 21 degrees and the fuel capacity is 95 gallons or 360 liters. Like all Cobalt yachts, this one comes with a few key features that may distinguish it from others brands. The fiberglass stringers and composite transom will definitely keep your boat from rotting and increase its durability significantly. Also the composite floor will reduce noise and you don’t have to worry about significant deterioration.  When it comes to performance you will get a deep deadrise that will allow easier comering with a Kevlar reinforced running surface. The new technology will not only give you one of the quickest plane time in the industry but also your boat will remain on plane at lower speeds. Other features that definitely go above the standard features you will usually find are: it allows more than one ski line at the time, unique styling, stronger dashboard with a very luxurious feel plus a circuit breaker electrical system and an incorporated lockable glove box. When it comes to electrical features you should know that this boat comes equipped with 6 speaker stereo for those times when you just want to throw a small party at sea with your friends.

The disadvantages of this boat are not few, especially when you are looking for something more spacious. It doesn’t have a lot of room and you might feel crowded even when you choose to spend time with very few friends.

Bayliner 266 Discovery

| Boats | December 28, 2012

There are some boats that serve simpler purposes, such as an outing in nature or a nice excursion on the sea but bigger boats are for those who want to live a whole new experience, day and night. The Bayliner 266 Discovery offers you everything you might need during a cruise with your family or friends. Besides amazing technical features it also has an amazing interior and exterior design.

The length of this boat of about 25’7″ (7.8 m) makes it a perfect cruise boat but without the extremely high price attached to those as it is smaller. With a deadrise of 17°, a beam of 8’6″ (2.59 m) a draft max of 3’3″ (.99 m) and a draft hull of 1’9″ (.53 m) this boat can be categorized in the luxury segment but for a person with a simpler taste.  It can be a perfect family boat as it has enough space for a family of three or four.

It comes with different option packages that include different items according to the person’s objectives. The standard packages are the following: the Fish pack option that includes a tackle box, raw water washdown, rocket launchers and stainless steel rod hangers in cabin. There is also an electronic package that contains a Garmin™ GPSMAP® 541S Color Chart-plotter/GPS and Garmin™ 100 VHF Radio; for decorations there is the package that includes cockpit table, carpet stereo, shower and different surfaces. The optional features are for those who want things a little bit fancier and they can opt for Air Conditioning or Heat, a Spotlight, Windlass and even a macerator discharge for the Holding Tank.

This is definitely not a cruise boat for the picky buyers; if you need something fancy where you can have parties this is not it as it is the perfect cozy boat that can contain a few people. It is definitely the affordable option and something for a person who always wanted to sail or spend some time on the sea fishing or doing other activities without investing too much money. It’s definitely worth all the money but some might find it a little small for their needs.

Getting a Good Deal on Luxury Boats

| Boats | December 11, 2012

Although luxury boats are usually bought by people who have an over average financial situation, there’s always best to make sure that you get a good price for your boat. With these tips you may get a significant discount on your luxury boat.

There are different places where you can buy your luxury boats from. Some companies will even have websites online where you can browse their products before choosing the boat you desire. You should also check the classified ads in the paper and also ask among your friends, maybe they know somebody who is willing to sell their boat. The last option might be the better one when buying second hand luxury boats as you will be able to inspect it and you can trust your seller. It is also great as you can negotiate a lower price for the boat. Second hand luxury boats are a great option when you don’t want to spend too much or you simply want a model that is not manufactured. However, the last option might cost you more than buying a new one, especially if the boat is in excellent shape.

The prices of a yacht increase with its size, so if you want something cheaper, you should be looking either for a small yacht or a medium size one. Also, there is a price difference when it comes to the materials used for constructing that specific yacht. Most yachts are nowadays constructed from fiberglass but you may encounter some yachts that are made of wood. However, the best deal you can get is by getting a yacht that doesn’t have a lot of accessories. They can cost you a lot when they come with decorations and gadgets so if you can find something simpler and buy the gadgets yourself, you might get a good deal on it.  Also, you get the chance to accessorize it according to your personal taste which might not be similar to the previous owner’s taste.

Before considering all these tips, you should also make sure that you have determined your budget and the type of the yacht you want, this will narrow your options better and you will be able to focus on the more important aspects.
