Windjammer Barefoot Cruises
Earlier this year I wrote about Windjammer SV Polynesia’s sad situation in Aruba. For the ones who don’t know, Windjammer Barefoot Cruises was cruise company specialized in offering Caribbean cruises that was very informal and small scale (about 130 people). It was a cool way to cruise the Caribbean, for sure.
After the company fell into some financial troubles, reportedly because of internal bickering, the ships were seized by parties demanding payment. One such ship was SV Polynesia. It’s the fourth time that they are going to try to sell it.
I speculated that SV Polonysia would end up at the bottom of the ocean as many – admittedly smaller – ships do, however, if sold the ship might rise again in its old glory. It will be the fourth time this deteriorated ship is going to be auctioned. The starting bid is $205,000, excluding $130,000 in costs. The ship was valued some time ago at $1.5 million.
