I think you will find the Simrad 24NM refers to the radar (24 nmile range). We have found often the information on websites about used boats can be wildly incorrect. To the point where the boat images shown are completely different boats of the same model but with, say different coloured hull. So you would need to check all the details are correct. Nothing wrong with Furuno equipment.

After seeing Rick's furling boom we looked at doing the same thing with our 575. There is a manufacturer in Europe who makes the same furler under license. But, the cost ended quoted as around E50,000 to supply,freight, fit the boom, new vang and new main sail. Elvstrom advised our current sail could not be re-cut to the furlers specification. So in the end we thought it was too expensive - a  shame but that's life.

As I said I am looking to buy a Hanse 540e 2008 model with an asking price of 170k. So a furling main sail would be awesome but does not match with my budget.

Maybe when I upgrade on a newer boat that could be an option for me. The 575 is my dream so when you will sell her let me know Wink

Really appreciate all your informations you shared with me - will keep you updated!

SIMRAD = B&G = NAVICO anyway..Big smile   Furuno radar has a good reputation and my experience with it on one of my boats was good.   The only relevant point I'd mention is power consumption.   An analog radar (as opposed to the newer digital/broadband/chirp radar) will consume much more power and take a few minutes for the magnetron to set up.   Resolution can be somewhat less than today's radar as well.   For example,  Digital radar can often see the dinghy being towed by the boat and not just the boat.  Or give better shoreline clarity. 

For 10 years prior to building this boat,  we had RAYMARINE E120 and E80 analog radar / chartplotters on our boat.    People kept asking me when I was going to upgrade.  I kept telling them that the units did everything I needed (and more).   I never changed the electronics from the original equipment I had installed in 2007. 

Replacing things for the sake of having the latest and greatest is dumb.    If you have to spend the money anyway (something broke, or its a new boat and you are deciding what to put in), then do your research and be happy with those decisions for a long time.   It will often take you years to get to know your boat anyway...

As Wayne said,  you add up the numbers, make a value judgment, and move on...
