Broker's Comments

Este barco de estilo clásico se trajo desde el Caribe navegando. La experiencia demostró que es un barco muy fuerte y sumamente apto para travesías oceánicas. El interior del barco es precioso, con mucha madera (recién barnizada). El barco ofrece una buena habitabilidad, con un gran salón (convertible en cama doble). En cuanto a equipo de navegación, tiene muchos elementos poco comunes en los barcos aquí (BLU, fax meteorológico) pero que sirven justamente en las largas travesías. Bandera española, lista 7ª. Nota: el propietario puede aceptar una embarcación más pequeña y también está dispuesto a vender parte del barco.

This classic styled boat was brought to Spain sailing from the Caribbean. The experience showed that the boat is a very strong boat, very apt fro long ocean going journeys. Her interior is very beautiful, with lots of wood (recently varnished). She offers lots of living space, centred around the big saloon (converts to double berth). She comes complete with some equipment that is rarely seen in these parts (SSB and weather fax) meant for these long journeys. Spanish flag. Note: the owner could consider a smaller boat as a part exchange and is also interested in selling part ownership of the boat.
