Mark Finch of Anacortes, Washington, just completed the purchase of his 9th used monohull from Sunsail and The Moorings' Caribbean charter fleets. That's right, Caribbean. Mark and crew left St. Martin on their new Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 39i "Sloober Hoob" yesterday, with Virgin Gorda slated as their first stop. Their delivery includes sailing to Ft. Lauderdale and then putting the 39-foot monohull on a truck for over-land delivery to Washington state. It sounds like a long and logistically complicated delivery, and it is, but Mark has completed 8 other similar purchases in the last 12 years and finds moving the boats worth his while. His previous purchases, which have stocked his charter fleet that serves the beautiful San Juan Islands, include:
- 1 Beneteau 35 - Tortola
- 1 Beneteau 38 - Saint-Vincent
- 2 Beneteau 44s - Tortola
- 3 Beneteau 50s - Tortola
- 1 Jeanneau 50 - Tortola
Mark commented that the condition of the Sun Odyssey 39i is "Excellent," and he added, "See you soon!" We wish Mark and crew a safe delivery to Florida and look forward to seeing him again.
