To protect you, as purchaser, and myself as seller, I propose to complete the sale using the RYA "Agreement for the Sale and Purchase of a Secondhand Boat" - the wording of this can be seen (http://www.essery.net/RYASaleAgreement.pdf)I expect the winner of this auction to pay £100 by PayPal within 24 hours of the completion of the auction. This £100 will form part of the 10% deposit required on signature of the RYA agreement. The agreement is to be signed and the balance of a 10% deposit is to be paid within 10 days of the end of the auction. If the deposit is not paid and the agreement not signed within this timescale the transaction will be considered null and void and the £100 initial PayPal payment will be retained to cover my wasted costs. A sea trial and/or an opportunity to survey the boat will be available under the terms of the RYA Agreement.Advertised elsewhere so I reserve the right to terminate auction early if it sells through one of those channels.Happy bidding!
