If you A) are looking for the perfect boat that could take you anywhere on the planet in safety, beauty, and speed, and B) have the right kind of ‘funding’ (that means if you have money), look no further. S/V Nomadness is for sale. After an internal debate that must have been agonizing for him, friend Steven K. Roberts has decided that he must move to the ‘dark side’ of power boating. And we forgive him totally because we know that it’s a choice made out of necessity, and not love. (And also because if we don’t forgive him, it will be hard to forgive ourselves if we do the same someday). So it’s okay. His loss might mean that you gain this terrific sailboat. And if you lean toward geekiness, look no further because this boat is so geeked out that I can’t even have a coherent conversation about it without getting lost. Totally out of my league with the techno-geek thing.
Mike and I traveled to Friday Harbor a few months ago to see this boat and I wrote a review of it. Here is the link. Steven has a complete website with a ton of information about this boat. Here is his ‘for sale‘ ad. So, just saying, there is a ot of information about this particular boat on the interwebs already; much more than you would generally find about a potential addition to your family. Here’s a little preview for you galley-oriented folks.
The boat is located in Friday Harbor, an easy ferry trip from Seattle. It’s right by the ferry terminal so pretty ‘no stress’ to see, plus you can do dinner in Friday Harbor. What better excuse for a getaway? If you are boat shopping for a world class blue water cruiser, you owe it to yourself to see this boat. Tell Steven I said howdy.
By the way, if you know someone who’d like me to view and write up their boat, give me a shout. I miss getting to view lots of boats now that we have Galapagos, and we do get a ton of traffic on those boat review pages. Since we aren’t ‘shopping’, people are less inclined to want to spend time showing me boats. (Insert big frowny face.) So if you know a boat owner in the Seattle/Tacoma area who has a boat they’d like reviewed, let me know.
