Yes we know the boatyard and the designer . When we was in search Mr Fèvre propose to us the Ligure 50, because he already built her as an "exibition" boat .At this moment she was in blue. But we when at less 60' for keep the "ends" without weight. And since that moment we made twice offer on her when she was for sale in Caribbean, before and after the cyclone but they finally got an higer offer ...from you :-) probably .
For two people she could be perfect.
Actually we have some problem to connect on Trawler Forum open one page : ok want go to another page "no possible" , did you have the same problem ?
Captain, how about going up to Saint Johns, Newfoundland then over to the Azores and finally to Europe itself. No need to carry extra fuel. Since you are not a sailboat, no worry about light winds. This series is no longer than leaving the East Coast, then Bermuda, then Azores and finally Europe. Michael 410-913-2330
