After only a few weeks on the market we have sold our boat Iolanthe. We wish the new owner the best of success with her, she is a good solid boat capable of taking him wherever he may care to go.
Selling a boat, a good boat though is a bitterweet thing.
We are now searching for our next boat – which is exciting. We are also very happy we sold Iolanthe in good condition, for a price we were happy with and quite quickly. Everything one could hope for.
Yet as we pack up boxes of boat belongings we are happy-sad. We remembered the good times we have had and the places we have been. We remember Sophie starting to take her first steps in the saloon, we remember her holding on in the cockpit as we beat into 30 knots coming into Bundaberg, we remember sunset dinners, passages spent talking to dolphins and that this wonderful boat was our only home for a year.
She is now ready for new dreams and so are we. I haven’t detailed much about what we are up to on here yet, but we are not done with sailing rest assured of that.
can more than understand your state of being “happy-sad”… am sure you’ll feel much better when looking for a new boat and focus on the future. Good luck with your search!
