Six weeks after we listed her online, Take It Easy is sold. We did well, particularly since there was the festive season in the middle of this period!
A French couple liked her, made a fair offer which we accepted. The survey was conducted earlier this week by Geoff Cruse, the same surveyor who surveyed Anui! He did an in-water survey while she was in her berth at the Gold Coast City Marina, a brief sea trial in the Coomera River, then an out of water check of the hulls at the GCCM slipway. It was a tense day for all of us, but things went well. She passed the survey and sea trial and Take It Easy is now Yann and Cécile’s vessel.
Final stage of the survey for Take It Easy – All good!
We will always think dearly of her, but we are relieved she is gone. Owning two boats for a period is not a comfortable thing! We can be totally focused on enjoying Anui without worry in the back of our mind. There is no looking back now!
It is pleasing to know Take It Easy will be sailing on far and wide. We said our final farewell to our beloved boat and wished Yann and Cécile well. Who knows, we might share an anchorage one day!
