Maintenance Cost

What would be a very conservative all inclusive US or EUR maintenance amount (in a high maintenance care scenario including winterisation/unwinterisation costs) to provision yearly on an 06/07/08 SAN210TE with about 200 hrs, based on 50 hrs yearly utilisation?

1st purchase looming / Any feedback is appreciated.

Hi Emanuel what you are asking is the cost of ownership. That, my freind is a lot of variables. Just insurance and storage could vary 25% region to region.
Maybe it's like the old saying:
"if you have to ask..."

Who's gonna do the work you or the dealer?

You asked for maintenance costs, are you only looking for maintenance specifically or all anual costs associated with the boat? If you are interested in a complete anual cost I think we should start with a complete list of yearly costs, here is what I can think of.

Maintenance-~$500-$1500 for do it yourselfers and ~$1000-3000 for shop to do everything
Registration (boat and trailer)~$50
Storage~$0 store at home-$2000 anual boatel
Marriage Counseling~$?

Please feel free to add/adjust

Aaron = Dealer maintenance
George = maintenance cost + winterisation & unwinterization (not inclusive of storage).
I am trying to gauge how much maintenance $$ I will roughly spend on this boat on a per year average (50 hrs of utilisation, 3 years).
Not married, so no counselling costs !! cheers!

I just did annual maintenance last week. I do it all myself and here's what I paid:

- Changed impeller ...Dealer charged me $45 for the impeller (they are $34 from Skidim.com)
- Oil change - $19 and change for 5 qts of oil and a filter
- V-drive oil $4 for Castrol 30 weight

Where you live will also have something to do with it. In Texas the off season is much shorter, so I do not mess with fogging the engine or adding anti-freeze. I simply drain my block/manifolds and add Sta-Bil to the gas tank before putting her up for the winter. When Spring rolls around I change the fluids and impeller. I also change the oil every 50 hours.

So unless something out of the ordinary pops up (bent prop, strut, rudder, shaft packing, etc) maintenance costs me about $100 per year. However, last season I tore up two props and a rudder. The rudder cost me about $250 (installed it myself) and the props were each $110 to have re-conditioned.

There are other expenditures that may or may not apply to you depending on where/how you store your boat. I keep mine in my backyard, so I do not have any storage fees. However, I do need to drop $400-$500 on a new cover every 3-4 years.
