Former US Navy boat goes on sale
A 40ft admirals barge that was part of a US Navy cruiser-destroyer fleet and was more recently used for bell diving is up for sale.
The vessel, built in 1965, is believed to have been part of cruiser-destroyer group in the Atlantic based on items found on the boat after it was bought. It was repurposed for use by a bell diving company in Bermuda after being bought in 2000.
According to the seller, Geoffrey Redmond, the boat was one of numerous items the US military sold through third-party auctions, which is how he came to buy the vessel.
Although it needs work, a new owner could use the boat for diving or as a pleasure cruising craft.
The vessel has brand new propellers and is selling for $40,000 or the nearest offer, according to the listing on Emoo.com
