Fully equipped for an abandoned worldcruise by the desillusioned owner. "Bon Bini" needs some care here and there, but is very strongly built by the previous world-circumnavigator.

According to the latest Dutch spelling this word should be written without a hyphen.
There is not a literal translation for circumnavigator but whenever someone sails single handed around the world the Dutch press is using the word 'solozeiler'.
