BE up for sale

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Our beautiful BE has been our home for the last 2 years in which we sailed from Australia to Europe. She is a traditional longkeel design, with proven offshore capabilities and heaps of living space below. She is ideal for a couple to live aboard but can sleep up to 6. Everyone who comes aboard loves the feel of her.

She has all the gear needed to live and sail in comfort, like autopilots, HF Radio, watermaker, inverters, Solar and Wind generator to name some of her inventory (See inventory list for full details).

We’re still sailing her in Greece till end Nov, we then would either sell her or store her over winter. However our cruising kitty is depleted and while we go back to work we’d rather see her sailing on instead collecting dust on the hard… and yes, the money would come in very handy as well. We are happy to arrange viewings and test sail till then.
