SOLD!!!! Salt Whistle is for sale! $39,500 OBO!



We have made the extremely difficult decision to move back to land and sell our beloved Salt Whistle.

She was a wonderful floating home and took us on many adventures over the past 5 years.  We sailed from the Virgin Islands and island hopped our way down the Caribbean chain to Grenada and back, stopping at nearly every island along the way.  We made many improvements and added lots of extras (over $30,000 worth) during our time as owners of Salt Whistle to add to her safety, comfort, and convenience.  We are hoping for a quick sale, asking only $39,500.
