Before I go off in search of suppliers does anyone already have a list of suppliers and or prices for a Sevtec Surveyor (14' or 16') Briggs or Kohler powered?

Before you ask no I am not getting rid of my ASV, nor am I building a myself a Sev. My ATC Squadron are thinking of building and I need to put an usable budget together. all help gratefully received.

Suppliers depend on prices which depend on suppliers and purchase date (add another 5-8% or so import duty/currency fluctuation if you aren't buying before 2018  :D ).  Total cost for a 16ft Surveyor = 5374.54 including trailer (all components absolutely brand new) with aggressive purchasing.  Allow another 180 or so for consumables.

Suppliers are all listed HERE.

I don't have any preferred suppliers, I shop around every time for the best deal/product/delivery - supply circumstances (stock, sales targets, etc.) change - published prices are just the start point for negotiation.  Unless you have money to spend immediately there is little point in shopping just for prices as they will certainly change in future (both directions) - the all-in cost below won't be far off.

The big items in this build are the engine, prop/fan, core foam and fibreglass/resin.  However, the "small" stuff also adds up to significant amounts (eg fasteners (bolts, screws, etc.) will come around 350! - best price is to bulk buy (work out how much you need before starting) rather than in drips and draps (cost 3x, 4x as much).

Make up a proper parts list before you start - account for every single nut, bolt, screw, etc. and you'll then be able to get the best deal possible.
