BE up for sale

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.

    I feel like crying!! I can’t believe it. Have just seen the posting. If only I had the money and could buy it for you. It must be heart breaking for you - I am gutted myself. Hope the trip to Athens is going well.

    Lots of love

    steel money, buy rice only, dont come home.

    Seriously you need to get a lot of cash for that boat to sell it, from experience i can say that you will be longing for BE after about 3 weeks and if you sell it there is no turning back. Come home but dont sell…..

    i mean it.
    been home for 1 year now, just quit my job, sold the house and going back to the pacific.
