Trade Wind FOR SALE in Maine USA
It's 17 years since the Association last had news of Trade Wind, but she has reappeared on our radar in fine shape as the recent photographs on this page show. The news of Trade Wind comes via Staci Best, who's very kindly helping the current owner, John Gardneras, put her up for sale. “John's isn't much one for electronics and especially not computers”, explains Staci. John's main concern is that the boat go to a loving family. Many photographs and further details are to be found on the HBA's FaceBook page.
Incidentally, Lloyd's list her as Trade Wind, but she's often referred to as Tradewind.
