Broker's Comments

This professionally built ferro-cement ketch was constructed in Canada and for almost 30 years the first owners have enjoyed sailing her across the world’s oceans. They then sold her to her current owner who converted her into a cool loft-style home and office. As such he has been able to deduct the mooring fees and maintenance costs from his company taxes. The mooring in the centre of Barcelona can be taken over. The current condition of this boat is good as a house boat. She is capable of sailing, but needs to have some TLC to bring her back up to date for that purpose (navigation equipment, engine service). British flag. Her owner is keen to sell and has decided to bring his asking price down from 60.000 euro to the current 34.950, not negotiable.

Este ketch de ferro-cemento ha sido construido profesionalmente en Canada y durante casi 30 anos sus primeros propietarios lo han navegado a traves de los oceanos del mundo entero. Entonces lo han vendido al propietario actual quien lo convirtio en una casa con despacho flotante, estilo loft. Como tal ha podido desgrabar los gastos de mantenimiento y de amarre. El amarre en el centro de Barcelona se puedo continuar. La condicion del barco es buena como casa flotante. El barco es muy capaz de navegar, pero necesita un poco de atencion para volver a ponerlo en condiciones para este fin (equipo de navegacion, servicio motor). Bandera inglesa. El propietario quiere vender el barco y por lo tanto ha reducido su precio pedido de 60.000 euro a 34.950, no negociable.
