Broker's Comments

OK, you've read the book, now restore the craft!
She has spent her life in the Falklands and had numerous modifications at the hands of various owners wishing to adapt her for mainly commercial use. She changed hands in the 70's and work was started to return her to her former glory but never really progressed past keeping her afloat.
When the present owner arrived in the Falklands in '98, she was moored in a marina and he watched in dismay as her dilapidation continued unabated until, in 2007, he
returned home and arranged for the Wanderer to be transported back to the UK. The intention was to restore her but circumstances have altered and we now need to find a new owner to continue her journey!!
