Bidders will be required to sign acknowledgement of the terms of the auction upon presentation of the deposit.


Any person bidding on behalf of another person must provide the estate with a copy of a written authority and such authority will be subject to approval of the estate: otherwise the bidder will be taken to be acting on their own behalf


The boat is being offered for sale on an HST exclusive basis as the estate is not an HST registrant and will not be collecting HST. HST, if applicable, is the responsibility of the purchaser.


The boat is located at station 21 at the Royal Newfoundland Yacht Club. Inspection can be arranged by calling Steve Porter at 693-2519 (area code 709).


Bidders are expected to have read a copy of the surveyor’s report presented at and to have conducted their own due diligence and determined the condition and suitability of the boat prior to the auction.

All descriptions provided by the estate or the auctioneer are to be used as a guide only, and subject to verification in a form that may be appropriate and as determine by a registered bidder.


The estate reserves the right to sell the boat in advance of the auction.


A reserve (minimum below which the boat will not be sold) will apply and the estate reserves the right to keep the reserve amount in confidence until the final bid is presented at the auction. The estate may also, at it’s choosing, decide to disclose the reserve to interested parties as the estate deems fit to do so.
