Broker's Comments

Este Bristol Channel Cutter ha sido construido según los planes de Lyle Hess en Astilleros Caravela. El diseño se hizo famoso, gracias a la pareja Pardey (, quien lleva años navegando intensivamente en uno de estos barcos. El casco se construyó en el 1989, pero desde entonces el propietario (carpintero marino de profesión) lleva trabajando para terminar el interior del barco. Como consecuencia, se nota que el nivel de acabado es muy alto. El barco solo se abanderó en el 2009. La cocina es nueva, asimismo que los tapizados interiores. Un barco muy especial, muy fuerte y buen navegante para un aficionado de los barcos de madera. Bandera española, lista 7ª. Nota: se pueden considerar contra-ofertas.

This Bristol Channel Cutter was built according to the designs by Lyle Hess in the Caravela shipyard. The design has become famous thanks to the Pardeys ( who have been sailing across the globe in one of these. The hull was built in 1989, but since then her owner (a professional shipwright) has been working off an on to finish the interior of the boat, according to his own very high standards, and it shows. The boat was only commissioned in 2009. The galley is new, and so is the upholstery. This is a very special, strong sail boat with good sea keeping for someone who is passionate about wooden boats. Spanish flag. Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
