Thanks for the warm welcome.
First of all... What does CE stand for?
I have a book of regulations from the US Coast Guard that lists the codes that I have to comply with and to be quite honest, almost none of it applies to our boat.
Because our boat in over 20 feet and will be outboard powered, it's very simple.
1.) proper venting of the fuel tanks
2.) visible fuel tank certification labels
3.) navigation lights if the boat is to be used at night
4.) proper electrical grounding
5.) a label that states the boats complies with applicable regulations at the time of manufacturing
No applicable regulations for floatation or horsepower restrictions.
As a custom builder, we can build the boat to meet ANY specification as long as we are provided with those specifications. If one of our "overseas" friends wants a boat, simply tell us the "CE" codes/regulations/laws that apply and we will build the boat accordingly. Additional costs may apply.
We also feel that this is a perfect time to expand into the overseas market because the currency exchange rates are very favorable for the overseas buyer. Our "Standard" boat includes...
21' cat built completely with vinylester resin and hand laid biaxial glasses, fully cored with composite materials. No wood anywhere in our boats.
2 25 gallon aluminum fuel tanks
2 Stainless Steel fuel fills
2 Stainless Steel fuel vents
2 500 gallon per hour bilge pumps
4 Stainless Steel pull up cleats
3 Stainless Steel bow and stern eyes
self draining cockpit liner
high performance interior
The price is $ 20000 US dollars and as of this morning (3/11/2006) that is only 16,749 Euros.
Our tandem axle trailers are $ 2,300 US and 1,931 in Euros which is like getting a trailer for free.
I believe Baltimore, Maryland is the nearest shipping port for export, so freight can be calculated from there.
