Hi,

Last week my Trifoiler arrived in Auckland, New Zealand from Kentucky, USA.

I picked her up on Ebay (thanks ebay!) and it took many many hours and $ to organise her shipment here.

Today I unpacked her all and looked at all the bits and pieces. What a machine!

I look forward to getting her out on her first voyage with me as skipper in the next few weeks, time and weather permitting.

Thanks Roger! (the previous owner)

My boat is #125.

:D

AussieMik saw your post and wondered how it is going with your trifoiler. I am interested in who you used to ship it? also what the condition was and the price it sold for on ebay? where there many bids?
Wish you all the luck with it. :D

Hi,

I haven't yet set her up as I have had to go away on business.

I used a shipping agent here in NZ called united relocations, they organised a roll on roll off shipment which ended up costing me about $4k USD.

The boat is in good condition - a few nics and scratches and one of the amas seems to have had a repair to it. Sails look in great shape.

I paid top top dollar as I wanted to secure it out of the auction process so hit the "buy it now" button and paid the owner's dream price of $9.5k :oops:

I will update this board when I have set her up and sailed her!
