I saw some wonderful yachts (both sail and power) today at the Kobe Boat Show as Shin Nishinomiya Yacht Harbour in Japan. I have been drooling about the new Jenneau Sun Odyssey 54 for some time now....however, I have changed my mind. I am sure it is a great yacht but, at a squillion dollars, it is not the opulent article I had imagined. The new Nauticat 45 is just bewdiful!! Mr and Mrs Nauticat from Finland were there to talk about these wonderful craft.
The good news is, they are not THAT expensive. More good news (or so I thought) was when I asked my bank manager about trading my current boat.
He said I was a preferred customer.
Then I discovered that what he meant was that he preferred to not lend me any more money.
