35 000 nautical miles later… Farewell!

A late afternoon in May about 20 people that had been part of the project in one way or the other over the years gathered to share some memories and bid farewell to the yacht, before it passed on to its next phase of life. It was a very nice ceremony, thanks to all of you.

I wish the next owner fair winds!

Adventure sailing is wonderful, but sometimes hard to combine with other aspects of life.
So now that I find myself in a situation where I do not have the possibility to give the boat the time that it needs, I have decided to put it up for sale rather than just have it sitting unattended.

This is a good opportunity if you are currently looking to build or renovate a boat of this class. The Journeyman has proven itself a very fast, capable and easy to handle offshore yacht, and all the core aspects of the boat are in very good shape. But 35 000 nautical miles over 4 years has taken its toll on interior and equipment, and those parts of the boat are in rather poor shape. Most of it should probably be replaced or renovated. This is also a good opportunity to rearrange the interior to your liking.

So if your looking for a turnkey yacht right now this is not the boat for you. But if you are looking to build your own, you can get a very nice headstart here. Just the hull, machinery and rigging of a new yacht like this will cost you maybe 400k EUR and take maybe 8-14 months to complete. I am offering the boat as is at 250k EUR, and it’s already done. Just replace the broken or worn out equipment and redo the interior, and you have a nice new yacht, cheaper and faster than building from scratch!

The boat is currently on land in Stockholm, Sweden. E-mail me for more information!

Why are there no updates to the blog? What’s up with the boat? Well ;-) ….

I married. Got a baby son. So I have plenty of other things on my mind.

But the boat is still there and available for interested parties, so drop me an email if you have questions!

Well folks, it’s time for a little break. Almost 10 000 NM in the last six months. We have safely arrived in Tenerife, and the Journeyman will get a bit of a rest while I tend to other matters. This will mean a bit of a break in the blogging too, I am afraid.

OK, so we’re off the coast of Mauretania. It’s early June. And I’m doing my shifts dressed in thick fleece under full foul weather gear, with gloves and a hat on. We have a very chilly feeling 17°C!!! Is it supposed to be like this?
