Shipsforsale looking for partner/new owner

It has now been 38 years since I started my first small company. The reason was that my hobby had grown so I had to be registered for VAT. My hobby was to work with old trawlers, tugs and small passenger ships. The hobby continued to grow and became a profession. A profession that has given me friends all over the world. Back then, almost 40 years ago, finding a small ship you had never seen before and get on board was a dream to me. After crawling around documenting several thousand smaller vessels and commercial boats, that interest has cooled down considerably. On the other hand, meeting people who work with these vessels has become more important and for every meeting on board I have learned something from listening to other people.
