Bro! Are you in the market for a free boat? Do you know how to sail? You might be in luck. This dude is giving away his late grandfather’s 18-foot sailboat for free on Craigslist and it’s in immaculate condition. There’s just one tiny problem.
This sailboat is landlocked. Grandpa was a sailor and missed spending time in the open sea so he used a crane to drop this 18′ sailboat in his backyard swimming pool. Now that dear old grandpa is off to the afterlife, the family wants to unload the sailboat on anyone who is willing to come pick it up. The catch is the boat must be removed without damaging the home’s landscaping or the block wall that closes in the backyard. So, if you’ve got a crane laying around this boat can be yours for free!
Here’s the description from the listing on Craigslist:
Free 18′ Sailboat. Grandpa was a sailor, missed the open water and so he hired a crane to drop a sailboat in his swimming pool. Time to get the boat out. Free to anyone who can remove the boat without damaging the block wall or landscaping. Serious inquires only. No trailer, no boom, no sails or rigging. Rudder? Yes. Still free. Thank you.
If you’re still reading I’ll just assume that you own a crane or have access to one. You can find the Craigslist listing HERE, and when you finally pick up your free sailboat and get to sailing, I want you to know that you’ll be taking me out for a day on the water as a thank you for hooking you up!
