Broker's Comments

Es muy raro encontrar un barco esté tan cuidado y que tiene un equipamiento tan completo como este North Wind 47. El propietario se ha gastado mucho dinero en él preparándose para cruzar el Atlántico: cubierta de teka, velas, jarcia firme y de labor, enrollador de genova eléctrico, enrollador de mayor, winches eléctricos, molinete eléctrico, equipo de navegación. Todo esto se renovó en el 2007 o después. También las escotillas son nuevas y el casco se ha repintado en el 2008. Intervino entonces el destino y por motivos de salud, tuvo que abandonar el proyecto de cruzar el charco. Por esta razón el barco está en venta ahora. Es un barco en el cual no se tiene que invertir nada para poder navegar en seguida, es super completo (la única cosa que no se incluye es el auxiliar y su fueraborda). Bandera española, lista 7ª. Nota: precio no negociable.

It’s quite rare to find a boat that is this well cared for and this well equipped, as this North Wind 47. The owner of this Jongert look-alike has spent a small fortune in her to prepare her to cross the Atlantic: teak deck, sails, standing and running rigging, electric genoa furler, main furler, electric winches, electric windlass, electronics. All this has been renewed in 2007 or since then. All the hatches have been replaced and the hull has been repainted in 2008. Then fate intervened and for health reasons, he has had to abandon the plan to cross to the Caribian. That is also why the boat is for sale now. She is a boat in which nothing needs to be invested to be able to sail away immediately: she is super complete (the only thing not included is the dinghy and outboard). Spanish flag. Note: Price not negotiable.
