    Out of the series of the CoinCollection, constructed by Tom MacNaughton, I aim to sell my selfbuilt farthing+. I call it "plus" because the boats volume (incl.LOA) is scaled by 10%. She is 5.02m long. Her sail is a split-junk-rig, she has another interior and cockpit layout then shown on the website. You can look at my album for some pictures. The boat sits on a street Trailer with 1300kg capacity, boat weight is 995 kg incl. mast. She has a ballast of lead with 430kg.

    Maybe someone is interested in this little gem. Write an email to me. Price with trailer is 12500 € [was later increased in January 2024 to 13500 €]. Place is near Switzerland, blackforest, City: Freiburg.

    P.S.: To sail her is quite a joy, but also adventurious. As I am not getting younger, and need a bigger more comfortable boat, I decided to let her go into another ownership.

    P.S.: I do not need to sell immediately - this summer, I plan to go to the Baltic Sea with her for serious seatrials - the boat has been sailed until now and due to covid for only 6 weeks in the lake of constance. So, if there is no interest, I don't worry and will have fun with her in the near future.

    A little gem indeed. Good to hear you sorted out the initial problem with the sail Bert. I wish we could see some photos of her under sail. I'll bet she is great fun.

    Best wishes for a great summer on the Baltic Sea and hoping Runa will attract interest.

    Hi all, I wish you a good new year 2024.

    "Runa" is still for sale. Price has raised to 13500 Euro, to negotiate.

    Last year I had no time for getting her on the water. So I will try it this year.

    If there is interest in buying her, let me know.

    Best wishes,
