When you trying to find a suitable vessel, either private or commercial, you have to take lots of items into consideration. It's not clever and practical to go continiously on
the Internet to see fabulous ships with awsome photo's to show you 'ripe and unripe' altogether. Lots of ships can be found on numerous different websites with different specifications and different prices.
To prevent timewaisting we create a questionnaire with all relevant items. Related to your answers, preferences and ticked boxes you are able to narrow your search and select accordingly.
Please keep this in mind:
Your full 100% requirements will never exist.
- Search and deciding as one person is easier than as a couple (or more)
- The 'knock out' approach gives you the best results in creating your shortlist.
- A very special bargain has always a very short 'lifecycle' and needs your instant action.
