    Santa Cruz, California To Buy Replica Galleon

    Santa Cruz, Ca

    Santa Cruz hoping to capitalize on all the interest in The Pirates Of The Caribbean Film Franchise is looking to purchase a replica 16th Caravelle, It is currently looking for a crew to sale the ship from St. Lucia, in the Caribbean to Santa Cruz. It along with a rumored museum highlighting Early Spanish Artifacts of the Area. The new attraction on the Boardwalk is hoping to provide a boost to tourism. There the ship will be madeover "taking out all the hokeness" and returned to what most likely what a ship would of looked like Mid 16th century.

    The ship will make 2 round trips daily form Santa Cruz To Monterey

    Probably have to run the cat to get anywhere, I'm wondering if she even moves in full sail without engine running.
    Large capacity fuel tank, she should make it out of Panama if the engine is sound and holds up. Anyway your looking at least a $20.000.00 fuel bill to get her to Northern California, If you don't have to Charter a Tug to get her out of Panama.

    Infliction, I'm in Salinas to Monterey area. Within ~30 min. of several of the cities you are citing. But ... I'm having trouble figuring out what your posts have to do with metal detecting ? You're talking about replica ships I think ? Maybe if you posted these on the shipwreck forum.

    If it's in Dry Dock I would probably offer $37,500.00 to $51,500.00. Not much call for replica Spanish Galleons.
    $20,000 fuel
    another $20,000.00 to get it out of dry dock and prep for 5,000 miles
    plus crew

    probably the best way to do it would be to rip out everything on the inside non-essential, add some new electronics, probably 650 gallons of diesel to get to Aruba, and see if she can make a wake. Had to laugh, Ship Broker said "it sails good".

    Getting out of Panama and Central America would be the hardest. It might be easier to to charter a tug, to save the engine, depending on cost on how far they can take you, make it to Ensenada, do the Bottom paint (airbrushed wood planks) take it up the coast from there. Could probably do it in Saint Lucia cheaper, if it is already in Dry Dock.
    It must have some torque, If it's an old tug, probably forgo the Tug Boat Charter and take it off shore steaming up the coast out of Panama.

    This Must of been made out of an old tug boat from the great lakes, The sails most likely are just for show, Those galleons weren't fast in the first place.
    Would be an interesting trip though.
    Probably never happen

    Actually you could probably cut more weight in Panama, by sending "more weight" on in a shipping container, the sails, ropes, and riggings I doubt they would help in the big push up the Pacific Coast anyways. probably more cost effective.

    Exclusive listing by CARIBBEAN MULTIHULLS
    She is ready to go anywhere and work in a new project ...a real attraction !
    Owners are looking at all reasonable offers.
    Beautiful Spanish galleon replica, available now in the Caribbean! The BLACK MAGIC is a pirate ship reconditioned in 2011-2012.
    The carrying capacity is 149-200 passengers (or more depending on your licensing authority). This pirate ship comes turn-key, and certainly has a great movie potential.

    Too Bad if Santa Cruz Buys it

    I'm
    Fantasizing about winning the Powerball...

    Buying it....

    I don't think it wouldn't take much to transform her to a pretty good replica, at least on the outside.

    It sure would be a sight cruising across Monterey Bay daily.

    probably never happen, Next
