Default Bargain - Catamaran in NZ

Great Barrier Express 8.5m catamaran, damaged.

DAMAGED GREAT BARRIER EXPRESS CATAMARAN | Trade Me

Current auction price is NZ$5,000 and auction finishes next Wednesday. These cats go for up to $100k in good condition. If you can work with carbon fibre this should be an easy fixer-upper.

Here's an article about the double capsize that caused the damage during racing in 2006.

GBEs are nice day boats. The cost of a new rig for this one will be huge. But nonetheless a good fixer upper.

I assumed the whole yacht was carbon fibre but in fact the hull is fibreglass. Many of them have aluminium masts so it may be cheaper than expected to get her running again.

Of course, having been inverted there will still be a lot of repairs needed.

yacht repair cost I think depends on the boat, what's wrong with it & what you want done. Take it to a boat builder & get him to check it. One of the things you dont want on the water is to have the transom fall out!
