Please contact me with any questions or ideas as to where I can locate this equipment.
Are you trying to copy a vessel built in 1997?
If so you might want to aim at Bridge Equipment from a couple of years earlier.
The equipment is ordered soon after contract, no one can build a 167 ft yacht the same year the contract is signed so 2 yrs is a fairly safe bet for the date of the gear.
I must ask that unless you are going to zoom in on individual articles how will anyone know the exact year model of the components?
