Here is our answer to the other Carpe Diem thread:
Dear Mr amphibious1, dear Cruisers Forum community,
after nearly one month since the beginning of this thread and after reading all the comments, we decided now to clarify our point of view. We - the family
who owns the Carpe Diem.
To name the most important things at the beginning and to stop all speculations finally:
There has been NO (pre-)contract.
There has been NO deposit.
For sure, many mistakes has been made during selling process – as well from our side.
As our information was that the Carpe Diem was one boat amongst others to be observed by Mr amphibious1 at Grenada, we hope, that he could take a look on other boats and maybe already has been successful in his search.
After all, as you can see in the Internet
, the boat is still for sale
and the price has been reduced, and as you can imagine, this thread is probably not very helpful for the selling process. The brokers have changed, so the actual broker is not the same that was involved in the case mentioned above. And yes, the boat needs some love and refit
, as it has been on the dry for over a year now after giving us many years of pure pleasure. But it is clearly far away from being a piece of crap, as it has been indicated or rather just guessed in this thread.
To point that out, we support forums
as a place for information exchange and communication. But a certain etiquette should always be abode, which in our opinion is doubtful in this thread. This is why we decided to apply for deleting it.
, we have a proverb: „Wer schreibt, der bleibt“ which can be translated to „you write, you stay“ - means that everything that has been written stays longer than things that has been said. And especially in this whole case, you see that this fact has both pros and cons…
Please understand that we will not make any further posts as we think that there have been enough comments on this case now.
On behalf of the Carpe Diem family
