I regretfully have made the decision to sell one of our Carriacou sloops.I had planned on using two of them, but after finally starting to build our house I cant afford to invest more into the sailing side of our biz.
She had sailed under 500 miles so far because she has very slowly been getting “finished” here in Antigua after sailing across from the Grenadines. She is like new!
She is a traditionally built Carriacou constucted by skilled local shipwrights. We made sure that she was constructed with the best materials available including US $8000.00 worth of bronze fastenings.
She has a 2300 lb lead shoe bolted on the bottom of her greenheart keel and also now has about 6000 lbs of lead beneath the floorboards down below as seen in this image before her first sail. (current value of lead is about US $2.90 a pound which means we have about US $23,200 worth of lead on her).
She now has a brand new yanmar diesel 50hp engine that has about 15 hours of use down below. (Installed with prop, shaft, tank exhaust and controls was approximately US $17,000)
Her new North Sails including the racing gennaker and set of old spinakkers cost me about US $15,000.00 and they are like new as you can see in the photos which were taken the last time she sailed which was during Antigua Classic Yacht Regatta in April.
She has some beautiful bronze port holes and some bronze “sky lights” as well.
Below she is totally bare but has “skin fittings” for a head. The interior can be done however you want and this boat can easily sleep four people comfortably. There is plenty of room below because these boats were originally designed to carry cargo.
I was originally asking US $155,000.00 back in June but she hasn’t moved yet. If you are interested in seeing her please let me know via eliantigua @ gmail.com or on +1268 725 7263
