Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Was it as described please?
well this is a twenty year old yacht. Anyone who knows anything about boating knows where the word BOAT came from " bring on another thousand" !! The fact that a 1994 Beneteau oceanis 445 sold for £30,000 reflects that it going to need some work. I guarantee if you do a search for similar you wont find one for less then £50,000. This boat had a lot of interest and i sent an additional email to everyone of them giving details of all its issues and repairs that were needed . The buyers says he never got this email. But there is no major problem with the boat. But the original question was this boat as described is a difficult one to answer since there are so many systems on board if i say in need of TLC you need to go look BEFORE you bid.
But i can say that without a shadow of a doubt that there are no major issues on her. and also it should be noted that i could sell the diesel inboard engine on its own tomorrow for what he offered me. He's a business man trying to scare me into a brilliant deal. Please also note that he still wants the boat!!!!
What i need to know is can he put any kind of court seizure on the boat where it stands in Grenada bearing in mind he has only paid a deposit and that i have offered a full refund. Pls also note it was on Ebay UK who have no jurisdiction outside UK , and that its now 6 weeks since the sale due to him.
yes. every opportunity , as did everyone. But he didnt go to it for 4 weeks after putting in winning bid
