Lyle Hess 34 brokerage offer

With the Taylors 30L paraffin stove on offer one blog viewer says he wishes he had a suitable boat to go around that stove?

 Yes it looks excellent. Wish I had a classic wooden boat to put around it!

We can do better than that, as we have on offer a brand new Lyle Hess 34 design that the 030L Taylors paraffin stove we offer can be fitted into. We offer the stove at R8500 only, that is about U$850.

I have been asked why this boat costs more now than it did three years back when I first posted it?

Three main reasons:

Its brand new and will be sold as such, with the South African exchange rate declining in value more than 20% and that was in 2013 alone, so the value has to be retained by raising the price.

Its been in dry storage, so of course there was rent and insurance to pay.

The owner needs to re coupe his outlay, as if he was to buy in the boats same construction materials and at todays prices, so has to adjust his asking price to do so.


Pricing as below the materials and gear list.           Sister Ship.
