    I've bought a couple of boats from the states and done quite well out of them but 8k plus shipping and duty ce marking etc sounds too much for a 98 boat. Although I've done well out of the boats I've bought the yanks aren't the best people to do business with I'm not saying there all liars but they can be economical with the truth. I also used to but a lot of vehicles from Japan and found the Japanese could be trusted more than the yanks.
    Check with someone like CE proof what the status of getting the boat ce marked before you buy

    7k saving on a boat like that isnt realy a great saving tbh given the risk. Have you checked the freight cost with the boat on a trailer? Its usually cheaper if its rolling & trailers are cheap in the usa and sell well over here.
    Have you looked into getting it CE marked? It is a legal requirement for any imported vessels and can run into several thousand depending on the boat also some engines won't comply

    But you can buy a Maxum locally for 8k with UK trailer etc and devoid yourself of risk.

    Some examples

    Ah, OK. But a quick look at their cost in the USA shows the same value. So if you are getting it so cheap the very big ask is why?

    If its that cheap and has been "winterised" what are the chances the engines actually run? I take it you have costed the price of new manifolds, risers, bellows, gimbals etc all x2 or x4 as you have two V6s? I'm surprised you can't find a similar project in the UK going cheap given that a 30 foot boat with twin petrol V6s is not exactly going to be in high demand.

    I very much doubt a 98 30ft maxum with v6 petrols is worth 30-40k, you might see them advertised for that sort of figure but I doubt many sell for that
