$100,000 is an insane price for this boat even if it was brand new with good quality engine and working drive train.  The owner is really fishing for a sucker.  That amount of money should buy you a really nice used motor sailer, or better yet have it built at a reputable boat yard.  One foreigner/neighbor had 2 bancas built next to my cottage.  He hired a local boat builder who worked 90% of the time by himself.  The larger boat was at least 10 meters long, made entirely of wood, and the bottom of the hull was dug out from a single tree so it was continuous from stem to stern.  It was amazing to watch the construction, and it cost the owner next to nothing because the poor carpenter bid the job too low, and the owner was not interested in being flexible or forgiving, especially when he knew he was getting a killer deal.  I was annoyed by the owner because he was displeased that the carpenter was taking longer than he had estimated.  The poor carpenter had never built a boat of that size, and he ended up working practically for nothing.  He is a really good craftsman and it would be a great skill to pass on to a son.   However, he has two daughters who are not anxious to take up the trade, so his skill will die with him.

I'm curious Samatm, why are you considering a banca in the first place?  A good Catamaran would give you nearly the same small draft and be much safer.  A monohull would be safest of all, but it would draw a lot more water.  At the prices being quoted by these folks, you could more than likely pick up a good used Cat or monohull and have a much better boat.

For the money... a nice Catamaran or monohull would probably be better than banca strictly speaking boating performance---however the Banca is a pinoy craft  that fits in anywhere.. doesnt raise eyebrows or garner to much unwanted attention.  Finding a good boatsman /captain to run and maintain the craft would be much easier as well.    

 

security of the craft and cost of maintenance is biggie..   I am just digging into what it would cost to keep her in good running order and always ready to go.    How much do you think it would cost to maintain a high end Banca as pictured?

A lot!  Mostly because the odds are very high she was built with inferior materials, by works of questionable ability.  Most everything on her was purchased because it cost less, not because it was the best for the job.  Her paint (a very important item on any wooden boat) was probably purchased the same way, cheapest first, who cares about quality.  Has her bottom been given a couple of coats of high-quality bottom paint to protect it from Marine borers?  etc. etc. etc.

 

I have seen some very good boats built in the PH, but they are few and far between.  Filipinos are notorious for doing things on the cheap.  Not a very good idea for a boat intended to go to sea.  

 

Most of the bancas of this size are party or dive boats.  They are made to look pretty and make a short run to dive spots or cruise while guests party.  These boats are not intended for serious cruising or venturing out of sight of land.

Party boat is the key word, you can triple the price for a party boat.

A big banca like that is going to attract attention wherever you take it. That level of equipment demands 24 hour security and a full time "knowledgable" maintenance crew.

 

If you want some real world info about maintaining a boat like that contact Joonas at the Queen X harbour in Moalboal. His manager there is Richard who is very easy to get on with. She is a 105ft banka, but it was a nightmare to build and certify. 

 

She is out of the water at the moment, but talk to Joonas, he might be amenable to having a partner.

NOw that boat would attract a lot of attention !    looks like  the CSS Merrimac (Virgina)  of the Monitor battle ..
