'Querencia', an Endeavour 37 for Sale

by Jim Norris
(Kingsville, ON, Canada)


''Querencia'' is an Endeavour 37, Tall Rig with Bowsprit, 'A Plan' Interior, Built 1982.

This is a popular criusing sloop with a long keel designed for shallow waters with no problems offshore as proven in our crossing the North Atlantic in 2014. Please go to the Endeavour Yachts website and you can see much about this design. Also, our friend and crew posted some history info at www.kaliktime.com/atlanticcrossing.asp

We have sailed to Rome (2014) then Greece (2015 & 2016) then France & Belgium canals (2017), and presently the Netherlands canals. We now would like to sell 'Querencia' as she has well done her job for us.

The list of improvements and equipment is extensive. Some could be sold off. I will show what I know the original cost (in USD) to be for some items to illustrate the bargain at which this vessel is being offered.

I have taken the liberty of doing the negotiating for you (from fair market value price of 33k€, to a great discount price of 29k€) and settled on the unbelievable, rock bottom figure below.

If you do not understand what it means to find a used boat with all the major items & equipment recently updated at a lower price than one that will be a project, please move on.

Price: 24,000 Euros

Will consider other assets, trades, interesting arrangements, as well as cash.

You can see where we are by checking an AIS program (I E. Ship Finder) and search for: Querencia, Canadian flag, (NN Lefty).
