Wayne Mapp, Auckland, NZL asks:
Just wondering about your annual vessel costs, eg Fuel,
maintenance, haulout. Have they been greater than you expected with a
larger number of mechanical and electronic failures during the last year?
In due course (after my current career) I am interested in the option
of going north into the Pacific for a few months, and would like to
get a sense of the running costs of a boat like yours. I have a
better knowledge of running costs of 50 ft planning launches, but they
tend to be inherently more expensive to run in both repairs and fuel.
I assume a simpler vesel like a Nordhavn is cheaper, though i guess in
terms of systems other than the engine there may not be much diference

Wayne, we answered those questions as best we could in a fairly recent Forum request. If you go back you will find several replies addressing the same
subject. Bottom line is Egret is and has been quite innexpensive to run and
