    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    Pinhead

    My works are full of variations thats where i make extra money but only when the cleint changes something on a job or i can see an extra they would might like to add .You are missing the whole point here mate i was just starting this to see if handshakes /peoples words /people saying they would honour something is worth anything these days thats ALL.
    I do negotiate alot and do understand all of what goes on there thats what i was in the process of when the salesman said he would honor a quote.

    anyway enough on this thread im going to by a boat.

    have a great day

    a little explanation for you:
    MT has quoted you a price for you to purchase a finished product. You say you write quotes in the building game..what you are doing is tendering to do work..totally different concept. I tender a lot also and the prices change dramatically at times as the project proceeds..they are called variations. So my original tender is to carry out work and alter same as the project proceeds as the client requires various changes from the original design.
    They have quoted you a price for a finished product..not work in progress.
    I have purchased a boat which cost a lot more than any Yalta and that was done on a handshake...that was after receiving an original quotation and the negotiation which followed..and that was what I was telling you to do..negotiate.
    Surely you never have variations in any of your works ????

    Hi bulldogs7

    Is a near new rig an option for you,just might be fortunate enough to jag something close to what you would like already optioned up and save a bomb with someone else having lost on the initial depreciation once its driven out of the dealers driveway.

    Just a thought but certainly keep us informed on what you end up going with.

    Cheers

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    Just curious, does anyone know why Yalta have changed the name of their boats??

    Seems to me the 555 is now the 1800 All Rounder ? Which one is now what was the odessa, the 2000 Fisherman ?

    I am seriously looking at a 1800 All Rounder with a Yammy 115 4st from MT. Does anyone else have one ? Not too keen on the fixed seat boxes though as Id like camper covers and be able to sleep on the main cab floor with the wife while kids sleep up front.

    My other option is the Tournament 1750 with Etec 115. It has pedastal seats.

    Lancair,

    the 2000 fisherman is the 555, so the 1800 is the 535.

    Regards

    I ordered my 555 with pedestal seats , didn't like the glass boxes either. This was not an issue. The other thing you will find with the Yalta is headroom under the canopy without having to order extended height specially, which works well with a pedestal seat that slides back for the drivers side if you want to stand up while driving in rough conditions.

    Thanks Scalem,
    As I am 6'3" that is an important consideration for me. Im hoping to get back to MT this week to discuss options further. Due to the fact that I have to travel at least 40 odd km to get a Yammy serviced, I am considering buying hull only from MT and getting a local dealre to fit an Etec 115 or 130.

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    Hi Guys, I only got my Yalta 2000 Fisherman just before Christmas last year and have loved the boat. My first post on this thread was on page 3. Very regretably I have to sell her well before predicted. When you need to clear up expenses the first thing to go are the toys (and it wasn't the wife's idea). If anyone knows someone looking for a boat as good as new with only 28 hours and heaps of extra's then get them to have a look at my add at http://www.boatsales.com.au/boats-fo...aspx?R=9205662

    Re: Yalta Owners Club-aka-Roll Call

    G'Day All,
    A quick question for all the Yalta gurus out there. I have an early to mid 80's 16 ft half cabin (the classic yellow & white) hull with a now totally stuffed early to mid 80's Mariner 70hp outboard. I am obviously looking to replace the motor, but am unsure about whether I should move up to something with more hp. The main reason for this is that, when the current motor did work it had difficulty pushing the boat onto a plain with four on board (everyone had to stand up the front!). I am unsure whether this was because the old motor was already on the way out or not, or whether a newer 70hp would make a difference. I have looked around and seen a few with 90hp fitted, but not much more than that. I am not so much worried about having too much power, more exceeding the safe weight for the transom or impacting on the stability of the hull on the whole. I have contacted Yalta and they can't tell me a recommended maximum hp due to the hulls age. Any ideas?
