Continental Harrison Butler called Cyclone in Dronten Shed
Michiel Scholtes, the HBA's Netherlands correspondent, reports that the yacht Cyclone is for sale. This varnished hull classic is constructed of first-class materials and the standard of workmanship high. He also reports that the boat has been on the hard and up for sale for over six years, much to the frustration of the broker. He further suggests that even a very low offer from a suitable buyer would very likely be accepted. Karsten Köhler was initially very enthusiastic but was shocked to find recently (August 2019) that so long out of the water means a fair amount of time and money will now be needed to make Cyclone seaworthy again.
If anyone would like to investigate further drop me a line and I'll try to connect you with the seller as the boat does not seem to be being advertised anymore.
