Sharing a French Canal boat

Post by DickTuschick » Thu Dec 09, 2010 11:25 am

Hi Folks,
Here is an interesting one for you....
My wife and I have done several trips to France to cruise the canals there....An outstanding experience.
We recently came across a great canal boat for sale and we are trying to put together a partnership (four partners) to own and use the boat. We have three committed partners at present and are looking for a fourth. Henry Clews (Sno Dog) is one of the partners and a Krogen 48 owner is the other. The one time cost would be about $65K and annual expenses of about $2K are expected. Each partner would have the boat for one of the prime Summer months every year and then extra off season months as arranged with the other partners. If this sounds interesting send me an e-mail at Dick@rhumblineyachtsales.com and I will get lots more information to you.

Not yet... Several inquiries, one seriously considering, no final commitment as yet.
Are you interested?
