    THE Pasha Bulker is being offered for sale on eBay, with only a single bid of a dollar for the beached container ship with nine days left to go in the auction.
    Ebay user “jonno504” placed the ship on the site in the past 24 hours, attracting two questions from interested buyers.

    But jonno504 also warned bidders that the ship was “used”, its “fuel had been replaced with water for the moment” and the sale was “as seen”.

    “Slightly used container ship for sale,” the listing said.

    “It is a beautiful ship but an unwanted gift.

    “The views are amazing from just about anywhere on this little beauty although a chopper (not included in sale) is required for easy passage onto and off the boat.

    “Unfortunately the crew have left so a new crew will have to be supplied at your own cost.”

    According to the listing, shipping is at the buyer’s expense, but “pick-up is preferred”.

    The listing can be found here.

    Apparently ebay has now removed the listing. Or either the link is wrong.
