I'm baaaaack!!!

Hi everyone I had sold my Hallberg-Rassy 35, "Joli Elle" in Mexico 3 1/2 years ago and literally bought the farm. The itch is coming back. Actively looking for a smaller, capable cruising boat. I can't imagine the turn around in 3 1/2 years but I'm going to find out.

Re: I'm baaaaack!!!

Farming is as good as sailing, only different.


Welcome back, hope you will find a good boat and a good adventure again!

Re: I'm baaaaack!!!

btw one guy here is selling a small red Halcyon:
https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/halcyon-27
In Canary Islands, easy to get out to the West Indies - if you want to be in the West Indies.

I asked she has a new Beta16 engine too. Cheap, clean and easy boat, but 'only' 27'.


The owner is in the US now.
