 Budget


 

Indietro/back

 

INITIAL BUDGET:

When we started our search within used boats, our plan was to spend approximately 10-20.000 Euros to perform things like:
- integration (e.g. adding chartplotter, radar, AIS) or a total replacement (if too old) of the existing electronics
- replacement of the standing rigging
- repair or replacement of the sail wardrobe
- engine maintenance
- general maintenance (interior varnishing, some repairs)

REVISED FIRST BUDGET:

In view of the boat's - rather depressing - condition, we revised our budget as follows:

- Electronics upkeep: 10.000
  - speed/depth/wind sensors and instruments
  - chartplotter + GPS receiver
  - radar
  - Navtex receiver
  - battery management display
  - electrical dispersion meter

  - Paper charts covering Italy/Croatia/Greece
  - Updated Pilot Books

- Deck: 4.000
  - Sprayhood
  - Bimini
  - Lazy Bag

- WC: 700

  - water heater addition

- Electrical wiring: 1.000

- Deck gear: 1.500

  - renew ropes, sheets and halyards
  - revise keel and rudder lifting devices
  - winches?

- Regulatory compliance: 500

  - gas pipes and devices to be renovated

- Spares: 600

TOTAL: 23.400

Also this budget will turn out to be very, very optimistic!  In the "Budget Shaula4" summary page we will publish the actual figures, and they will be a (nasty) surprise!!
