The current rate for a competent, qualified boat builder ranges from $55.00 to $95.00 per hour plus GST, and any repairs to the underwater hull means the vessel will have to be hauled out of the water. The cost to remove a large vessel from the water is generally charged at a per foot plus a daily hard stand rate, plus environmental levies, plus wash down charges and more.
If there is a specific item you want us to investigate closely, let us know and we will include this in our report.
We understand that used boats are not new boats and the level of maintenance required to maintain a vessel may be a determining factor which you should know before you purchase. Please tell us what you don’t want in your next boat, like “major repair work” or “electrical rewire” or “machinery failure”.
