Saracen is a true bluewater
vessel designed by W.B. Crealock
. Her previous owners purchased her in San Fransisco and headed west with lots of adventures before arriving here on the Outer Banks
. I was truly pleased to have acquired her. She was in need of significant work
, so I rolled up my sleeves and started, as time would allow, as I work
fulltime, out of the area. And then Sandy came along. The results were that Saracen's engine
and foresail needed replacing. As much as I would really like to keep her, as a single
individual, who doesn't really know how long my employment
will last, I really need to be wiser.
I know of an engine
ready to ship and a good mechanic
; the damaged engine has already been removed, ready for a replacement. I have the insurance
company's appraisal of $45,825, in below average condition. I'm asking $17,000 with a 5% commission to anyone who brings me an acceptable offer, that closes.
I will be happy for anyone serious to see the appraisal. Saracen is on the hard
in Wanchese, so inspecting her should not be a problem.
If you know of anyone, have them get in touch with me. Saracen has all the potential of being a real show stopper. Interior
pictures to follow soon. Interior
