I talked with Paul at Bamar USA Friday. Paul forwarded the letter below, I told him I
would send it out to all interested parties on the A O G. With the interest generated from the Amel Owners
Group plus a few other contacts he has made he believes he can very shortly
place an order with Bamar for at least five units which will then put us in an
advantageous pricing position. Paul did
say that he represents Bamar in North America and the northern Caribbean,
please check with Paul if you are outside of his territorial sales area to
determine how this program can be beneficial for you. In areas where Bamar does not have
representation he can extend this program directly to you.
Together our buying power will allow us receive significant
discounts on these items. Possibly not
as good as the original program but still significant savings. Please contact Paul or one of the Bamar
dealers if you are ready to pursue this. I have committed to Paul to purchase and I
will be contacting a dealer Monday.
If I forgotten to anyone that you know has
expressed interest please forward this to them.
