    Hi Ricardo,

    If you live in Funchal, you should already be the expert! ;)

    Tell us why you are asking, do you like to buy the smallest boat that can handle this or..?

    Hi Ricardo.

    Please give us as much information as possible. Do you want a displacement or semi displacement boat? What speed do you want the boat to go and the BIG question is how much you want to spend. If you say not expensive are you talking about 5 - 10 million euros or are you talking about 2-4 million euros. If you give us all the facts you will get a lot of help on this forum. And welcome to Yacht Forums.

    delta yacht bueno!

    I think the range is probably not accurate as in way high.Also the price would far exceed 7 million euros.That being said I am confident you could do well in the previously owned market.Also in a yacht you dont want sacrifice quality for price especially when it comes to the wiring and air conditioning ect.Some yachts are better 5 years old than some brand new,you really should get a broker should you pursue this endeavor.Oh and by the way Funchal is beautiful you are already fortunate.

    Delta is a good boat i worked on a 124 foot and it was a pleasure to work on her. The engineering is very good in comparison with other yachts out there. Delta has been classified as the Feadship of American Boats
