Witness 35

Good morning, Happy Easter everyone. I looked at the Winess 35 in Mobile for sale, an older boat, seemed well constructed but pretty basic and needing a definite facelift inside. I don't know much about the Bukh motors, either. The owner and her husband had lived aboard for years and traveled extensively on it. Anybody out there with first hand knowledge of this brand? It is definitly a "large" boat, maybe more than my wife and I need. Thanks for any input!

I beg to differ Gideon, Bukh diesels have been manufactured in Denmark, and still are! The factory was owned by A.P.Møller/Mærsk until 1995, when it was sold to Aabenraa Motorfabrik (see Aabenraa Motorfabrik - Heinrich Callesen A/S) who manufacture them now.

Farymann distributes them in Germany etc.

They have a good reputation for long service with minimum hassle, but as with all manufacturers, some models are better than others. They tend to be a bit heavier than the Volvo/Yanmars.

Regards

Alan
