Baremka has been our home since May/June 2017. She has safely taken us around Northern Europe over the past couple of years. We left the East Coast of the UK in July 2017 and after a successful trip across the North Sea, visited The Netherlands where we explored Amsterdam and ventured into the Markenmeer. We then headed back out via the North Sea Canal past IJmuiden and followed the Dutch coast south, past Belgium and onto the North and North West coast of France. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring lots of little ports along the way and eating lots of delicious food! We wintered in Jersey, Channel Islands in 2017/18 before crossing the English Channel to Cornwall in April 2018. After an incredible summer exploring the Cornish coast and Isles of Scilly, we spent the winter of 2018/19 in Falmouth.

Baremka is currently moored in Falmouth, Cornwall. The only reason she is for sale is because we are expanding our crew in the near future! She has been an excellent home for us the past couple of years and we will be very sad to see her go. Baremka is an excellent, solidly built vessel that has proven herself multiple times over and kept us feeling safe on our travels. She has an excellent amount of storage space throughout - we couldn’t believe how much stuff we had stashed away in her lazarettes, lockers and cupboards over the past two years! Before she was our home, she spent the previous 12 years in the Med where the former owners spent the summers aboard exploring the Greek islands and winters stored ashore before returning via the French Canals to the UK in late 2016.

The survey we commissioned in April 2017 and more photographs are available for anyone seriously interested in purchasing Baremka.

More Information:

I have written this listing to the best of my ability and taken great care in its preparation, however, the correctness of these particulars are not guaranteed. The particulars are intended only as a guide and they do not constitute a term of any contract. A prospective buyer is strongly advised to check the particulars and where appropriate at his/her own expense to employ a qualified Marine Surveyor to carry out a survey and/or have an engine trial conducted. This vessel is subject to prior sale, price change, or withdrawal without notice.
