That's more expensive than a brand new boat !! (from the same company) Bargain ?
In Summary: If you're able to buy, aft a major event, a Laser in a quality of "to sell directly aft the event" it is cheaper, then to buy it brand new one in model version "Classic", but in this quality there are not many of those charter Lasers to get. BTW: To me, the Olympic boats to get allways is a matter of honour, not a matter of "bargain". I never would come to the idea to delete the stickers of "Weymouth/Quingdao/Athens/Savanah"!! But, of course those boats have to get the 2 well known official ILCA/ISAF silver stickers a the rear wall of the cockpit, in addition with a class legal sail-number. I always thought: the Olympic boats in future stay at LP's- "Sail Laser"-sailing-school at Weymouth/Portland (or an equivalent LP-"Sail Laser"-base. That most of those boats already have been sold at the island of England is incredible to me!
Finaly, to TLF member "BLS" (of PuertoRico), above: It is worth to sail Laser competitive. It definitely is more fun than at an(y) A-Class or F16 Catamaran! Come on and sail with us! Ask Tracy (via TLF-"private massage"-functionality), our ILCA president (aka TLF member "SFB Laser"), to help you to get a boat for you to P.R.!
Then, in 4 years, we meet at Rio!... Me, as a fat and old spectator of the Laser races and you, probably as an Olympic participant in the Laser Standard (who knows)! Guess, even the age 43 Brazilian-"Legend of the Laser Standard", Robert Scheidt, retuns (view here: http://www.laserinternational.org/info/laserstandardrobertscheidtbrawillbeback ).
So, up till then, I am quite sure, there will be produced enough boats of LP/UK or LP/USA or PSA (is my hope) to meet.
