    Junk rigged schooner Tanton 42 for sale as is where is for $10,000.

    Nancy and my lives mission has changed and as much as we want to take Avelinda sailing again we have to admit to our self’s that we don’t see it happening in the foreseeable future. We know the market is depressed do to Covid and everyone is strapped for cash including us. We would like to see her go to someone in the junk rig community who will take care of her and love her as we have and that is more important to us than getting fair market value.

    Avelinda is sitting on the hard in the Green Cove Springs Marina, a DIY yard in north east Florida on the St Johns river approximately 40 miles south of Jacksonville Florida. She has been there now about 3 years and the storage fee is $300 per month. There is an outstanding balance of about $1,800 do to a credit card mix up which will need to be paid before launch but current storage fees are being made regularly.

    Some sea water got into her rudder and corroded some of the steel structure inside and will need to be repaired before launching. The old headliner was removed for replacement and the new panels cut out and are stored aboard and need installed. All the cushions are in great shape and are stored at home. The sails are flat cut and in perfect shape. The Yanmar 60hp engine was running fine when she was hauled and is of relatively low hours and has been lovingly cared for. Her coach roof needs to be painted but other than that she could be launched and put to sea. She is a wonderful sailing vessel and we have thoroughly enjoyed her. We last sailed her from St Augustine Florida to Bermuda and from there, direct to the bottom of the Bahamas where we meandered back north through the islands before jumping off at Linyard Cay Cut for the direct sail back to St Augustine, a 2 ½ day trip.

    There are a number of youtube videos of Avelinda under sail and a tour of her cabin which can be found Here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxDkRHVrGC44fJpdQDLwZbQ/videos . I will be back in the states from the end of March until the first of June so time is of the essence. As a professional boat builder I would put her fair market value at about $40,000 given the present market condition and in her present condition. Repairs to get her launched and the arrears paid around $5,000 assuming you can not do the work yourself. Once back in the states I’ll take some current pictures to post to interested parties.

    I can be reached at blueketch@hotmail.com, EU phone # 351-963-887-417, US phone# 904-318-2024.

    Seems to be a really nice boat and exactly the size I would look for. Unfortunately I couldn't find the interior video. Would appreciate any more information about cabin layout.

    I agree with Ute: the interior video couldn't be found, nor a layout drawing. Also, some additional specs such as draft and mast height would be helpful.

    I really love those videos you have made of your boat, you and your wife sailing.

    especially the one where you use a kite to get an overview of your boat.

    from what I could see you took good care of her.

    it would be a dream comes true to be on her bow sailing her too far flung distances, transcendental spaces.

    I am sure she has many more years of service in her sails.

    At this point I've heard that Avelinda has been sold. To whomever the new owner is, I'd like to say that if your plans with the boat change and you'd like to sell it, please let me know and I'll gladly purchase it from you. Thanks. -Ben

    If that is true it would be simple courtesy for Glen to let everyone know and reply to the emails he has received.

    Hey guys I have a tentative agreement with Glen on his beautiful boat Avelinda going to be seeing her Monday to finalize it.  I am really excited! 

    If anything unexpected comes up and changes my plans Ben I will let you know.  I am a big fan of your sailing channel on youtube would love to see a Junk Rig boat represented by you and Tamby.  I will have Glen pass along my contact info to you.

    Chad,

    Thanks very much for saying that... and I'm also glad to hear that any perceived snarkiness (in my other post) about missing out on Avelinda was not taken the wrong way. You're obviously familiar with my personality. :)

    Sure, feel free to send your contact info one way or another. I'm not super familiar with the workings of this website yet, but perhaps there a way to message me directly here? If not then you can easily find us on FB.

    There's a small part of me that is still holding out hope that you might not want her for one reason or another. Perhaps she smells a bit funny. Perhaps her topside paint clashes with your eye color. Who knows - there's all kinds of reasons why maybe she's just not the one for you.  ;)

    In all seriousness, I do wish you luck with Avelinda, but if anything does change I'd certainly appreciate being next in line.

    -Ben
