Congratulations to Bruce and Kathy, the newest boat owners of the family! We think they've made a very wise choice! The new boat is a 2001 Alliage 41' cutter rigged, aluminum hull sailboat. If you'd like to see all the details, you can view photos and inventory here
We'd like to extend a "Thank You!" to David Chateau, broker at AYC International Yachtbrokers. David was professional in his role as broker and he was also welcoming and informative regarding our unfamiliarity with France. He spent long hours with us at the boatyard, collaborated with the owner on numerous occasions to answer all of our questions, and assisted us to inspect the Alliage 41' to the extent that we, "...might not need a surveyor." We realize David was trying to sell us a boat, but he went beyond our expectations of a broker and continues to provide essential assistance throughout the purchase process.
A celebratory dinner in Nice, France was the perfect ending!
We're headed stateside once again...
