Hi , Because i`m in Plymouth (PL9 9RP) the entire transaction will be completed trought eBay and PayPal . They will handle everything for both of us, including transportation and the transfer of the boat papers to your name.You don't have to pay anything extra,the total price that you must pay for this boat is £5,900. Here is how the process works: I will make a private eBay listing for you. You will have to click "buy it now",fill in the forms and follow the instructions. PayPal will send you an invoice with all the transaction details and the payment instructions. You will have to secure the funds to PayPal. After the funds will be secured to PayPal,the delivery will begin and the boat will arrive to you in max.48 hours. When the boat will be in your custody, you will have a 7 days inspection period. If everything is alright, the transaction ends and PayPal will release the money to me. If there is something wrong with the boat, you will be fully refunded and I'll get my boat back too, without any extra fees. Everything is covered by PayPal & eBay. I will get paid only after you confirm that you received it. I would need your ebay username so I can send you the link. I'm waiting for your reply. Thank you. aha... as suspected ... please pay for the boat without seeing it and i will deliver it to you..... REALLY !!....
