Owner wanted in Guatemala

Hello all,
I am looking for a cat's owner named Michel Poudou, French resident, owner of a Catana 43 currently in Guatemala.

Boat's name (not sure) : Ouekan.

Location : unknown, somewhere in Guatemala.

If somebody knows him or hears of him, I would be very happy to get in touch.
Thank you.

Re: Owner wanted in Guatemala

I already asked 17 marinas in Rio Dulce and whole Guatemala, searched all possible directories, Google, Qwant, Bing, Facebook and Linkedin pages and most French cruisers forums.

This man has put an ad to sell his boat, e-mails and phone don't respond and even seem invalid, I wonder how any buyer could get in touch with this ghost...!

Thank you anyway !

Re: Owner wanted in Guatemala

If you can find out where the boat is registered then you might get some info on the owner. Just a thought.

There is a online forum, Rio Dulce Chiseme, i would Post there. Lots and lots of gossip there.

You might try and email Raul. Very few boats check in without him.

Also Chris at Seakist Yacht Services knows stuff.

I know who this is. He sold the catamaran. I will be there in three weeks and can ask him to contact you if you still need to talk to him.

Re: Owner wanted in Guatemala

Thank you all for your help !
@thumbs up, I appreciate, but really strange his ad was published again yesterday. Waiting for your info with great interest.
I'll apply to Raul and the Rio Dulce forum as well.
Happy end (or not...) soon !

Re: Owner wanted in Guatemala

I eventually got him through another forum. As said above, the boat is sold and the ad should have been removed.
It's a real struggle when you are looking for a boat purchase : hard work to eliminate all invalid ads, automatically renewed ads, wrong email addresses or phone numbers, false inventories, multiple errors in description, pictures of wrong boats...
Again many thanks for your replies on this forum.
