We have made an offer subject to survey and have been quoted £1100.00 to lift and power wash prior to survey. Does anyone know of anywhere on or near the upper Thames that would be able lift a 70 footer.

£1,100 sounds like a lot of money just for taking the boat out of the water and pressure washing it. When you say “lift” the boat, do you mean transport it by road or just take it out of the water at a marina or boatyard?

It’s just where it is on the Thames and convenient for the owner we’ve decided just to go with it and black the hull ourselves then move further North for the other work we want doing. Where’s good for a paint job.? assuming the surveys ok.

That’s a huge amount of money to throw away. At Calcutt we would charge about £200 for pulling the boat out of the water and then £50 – £100 to pressure wash it. You will be paying four times the amount for the same service.

What is your budget for having the boat painted?

We’re paying £396 for crane out, pressure wash, blacking a 60ft boat and craning back in. Oh price includes vat.

More interested in finding someone with a good reputation, who will do a proper job at a fair price. We pick up a 69ft hire boat on Monday in preparation.
