Polyester sailingboat type Daimio 700, built in 1975 (France). I procured her in 1989, ater she served many years as a holiday ship in Friesland for KLM's sailingclub Watersport Vereniging Schiphol. The boat needed refurbishing and repairs and was equipped with a Mercury 7.5 pk outboard engine. The latter is improvising, especially when you have high waves.

  For me, the old Daimio could last many years more. In such a case, a new diesel engine is an good investment. It improves the seaworthiness and up-front costs will be earned back with lower maintenance costs. No fuzz with an old engine, but very relaxed sailing for many years more.
is'nt that wat we all want ?
