Boat­shed auc­tioned

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

The own­ers of a dis­tinct­lyren­o­vated Pare­mata boat­shed auc­tioned last week were ‘‘re­ally happy’’ with the in­ter­est it at­tracted.

Brian McNamara and Bill Ryan’s boat­shed, on State High­way 58 next to the boat­ing club, fea­tured in Kapi-Mana News on De­cem­ber 7. Mr Ryan said they were keen for $130,000 so were ‘‘pleas­antly sur­prised’’ it went for $133,000.

The two men had bought the boat­shed eight years ago, con­vert­ing it into a get­away for fam­ily and friends, but were not us­ing it as much these days.

‘‘We had a lovely day out there [on De­cem­ber 12], the tide was high and the weather beau­ti­ful,’’ Mr Ryan said. ‘‘There were a few ‘look­ers’ but three se­ri­ous bid­ders, and al­though it went past one’s limit quite quickly, the other two kept go­ing. We’re re­ally happy.’’
