Re: AMEL MANGO and OLD VIDEO

Henri's old boat is for sale in Ft Lauderdale. I looked at it, but had to be careful to not step on any rat crap. The boat was a mess.
There is one mango for sale (renissance is the boat name) i hear it is in great shape and much cheaper than the price you are currently looking at

Thank you for your inputs. Regarding Nirvana rigging it seems that two spreaders mast can be associated with in mast furling only.
Yesterday I was on Mango # 66/87 which is for sale. It is nice, clean and maintained unit with original cover fabrics, running rigging, sails and electronics.
I liked the vessel very much, but I can see in addition to purchase price around 50k € costs to outfit the boat for blue water cruising – to bring it up to date. As the boat is on sale for over 2 years and owner is fixed with the price, I am wondering whether cca 150k € purchase price (170k € set price) + outfit costs aren’t too much for a 25 y.o. boat where plenty of gizmo’s is up to be expected. I.e. Yesterday on the test, during the engine startup its vibrations did break the main power cable tired clamp on the Battery bank so the boat lost the power source completely. Owner, his friend and I did locate a problem and did fix this within 20 minutes, what I like to do very much; but the question remains …
Thank you for your help so far,
