Yes indeed I did. And not just any boat, but a boat described by both the broker and the surveyor as “truly a lovely boat.”

That’s right, right on schedule, today my purchase of Goshawk of Møn, a beautiful Westerly Centaur, completed. I’m very proud to be her owner!

Unfortunately because of a very hectic schedule in the coming weeks we are unlikely to be able to visit her anytime soon. As a consequence, I reluctantly asked the marina to haul her out today. It seemed silly forking out a small fortune to keep her on a visitors’ pontoon just on the off chance that we might be able to visit. At least she will be all ready for next season!

We will, of course, have to head up at some point soon to ready her for the cold weather. Our annual October getaway to Nerja (Spain) is looking increasingly unlikely to perhaps we will get to visit then. 

As for now, I will have to content myself that I own a beautiful yacht eagerly awaiting her launch and subsequent adventures at Easter!
