A 360 appreciation of the Rhodes record longevity, contrasted with it being one of the most advanced 22 foot sailboats being built in the USA today, is covered in 3 General Boats separate web sites: www.usedrhodes.com www.generalboats.com and the www.rhodes22.com smaller, more focused site you are currently viewing. Primarily designed to help Rhodes wannabes be sailing a Rhodes outfitted with their dream list in their cost comfort zone, other related topics (titeling, resale, etc) can be expected to invade this space in time. On the upcoming pages you will find: The current "Boat Show Package". Numbers along the left of each listed item help keep e-mail questions and responses in tune. Below this section is the "Super Options" List for those who may want to add an option not already in the Boat Show Package or, for Rhodies wishing to add any of these items, not already on their current boats. Scrolling down further is the "Trailer Category" section with pricing for those who's sailing agenda requires including a trailer.
Let's get to work.
Each individualized Rhodes Package is the input of the buyer. This gives the individual buyer exactly the boat outfitting he or she wants, within the budget range they are working with. We have found that in order for the shopper to clearer see what is included in an initial proposal from General Boats and what the buyer can add or take off a proposal, a starting reference is the way to go. That reference has become the "Boat Show Package" since it includes both everything needed to simply step on board and sail away plus the features most buyers expect and want when choosing a Rhodes. Example: An initial proposal for a 15 year old Recycled Rhodes with new boat guarantee, might be: $20,000 less than the equivalently outfitted New Boat Show Package.

General Boats philosophy: It is far better to be sailing a tried and true Rhodes today than go on dreaming of sailing a brand new Rhodes some tomorrow. Projet Rhodes, Used Rhodes, Used Certifide Rhodes, Recycled Rhodes with new boat guarantees, even Brokered Rhodes from motivated sellers, make a reality of a philosophy. GB's broad choice of categories to choose from, can go along with GB's "Loaner" program; a program that has you sailing for as long as two years without depreciation by allowing you to turn your first Rhodes in for a 100% credit of its purchase price applied for a new or recycled Rhodes, combining today's and torrow's dream, now to have you sailing sooner .
