Thanks for the comments and link Alan. I expect that in the current
economic climate in the UK particularly there may be a few coming up for sale
in the next few years.
Some VdS boats as well as Moody, Westerly and a few US and asian boats are on my list.
Always a bit worried about steel
, seems to be looked upon as slightly less problematic than ferro
concrete however, if the right one came up for sale
at the right price
(39-45 ft, centre cockpit
, ketch or cutter
with most of the bells and whistles and prefereably in corten) then it would definitely be considered.
I have driven over to lorient a few times to look at boats, only couple of hours away.
