Not a yacht-listing service, but…
Although I have no intention of turning this site into a yacht-listing service, least of which a free one, on several occasions we have had good friends opt to part with their vessels, boats which I knew could help to make some would-be cruiser’s dreams come true. For example, just under a year ago I posted about our friends Bob and Laurie who were giving up their Lagoon 380. And not too long ago I wrote about our traveling companions on Sol-Mate and Sabbaticus, two families which were also heading back to shore. I am happy to report that all of those boats have either sold or are under contract and due to close soon, their owners having since moved on to new adventures.
Just the other day I wrote about our internet friends Seth and Jaime on Slapdash. Their Gemini, which has proven itself to be a good live-aboard cruiser for a couple, is currently still on the market and is just waiting for two new adventurers to take over her helm. While I was happy to write about each of those to help out our friends, the situations made me sad as I didn’t want those cool people to leave our little community (I was being selfish). Fortunately, the boat that I want to mention today is being sold because of a much happier set of circumstances.
I suspect that many readers of our blog are also already familiar with our friends Scott and Brittany of Windtraveler fame. This young couple, who recently added a baby girl to their family, started to feel that the boat which had carried the two of them safely all the way from the US to Trinidad might not be quite big enough for their newly-enlarged family, or any future additions. For that reason and that reason alone, they have purchased a larger boat and now have Rasmus, their Hallberg Rassy 35 up for sale. If you are of the mono-hull ilk, this boat could have your name written all over it. Yes, instead of simply reading blogs about cruising, you could be out here too. Just saying. 🙂
Rasmus under sail. Beautiful!
