The Merlin is a very nice and well made single seat aircraft and were originally being sold by the ProTech company in the Czech Republic; it was listed as assembled 15,500 euro and kit 5,500 euro in 2017
But now they don't sell them from the Czech Republic, it was acquired by Aeromarine in the US about five years ago and the factory works for them manufacturing the Merlin's there for export.
ProTech do not reply to emails, all enquiries are directed to Aeromarine and they handle all reply's and orders
Typically when a good design like this is swallowed up by another company, especially from the US, the price escalates and for the US that's OK because everything is priced in US$ but all other countries especially here, get screwed.
It would be better to buy a 2 seat Jabiru or other aircraft than to import a Merlin into Australia.
