Do you own a tractor? Do you like pink sand vacations? If so, then this might be the travel deal just for you. The Reefs Hotel & Club in Southampton is offering a free vacation for up to six people in its brand new Reefs Club beachfront residences in exchange for—wait for it, wait for it—a tractor! You heard me right, a tractor. And not just any ol’ tractor either. The resort, which prides itself on keeping its slice of pink sand beach pristine (hence the need for the four-wheeled workhorse) has issued a specific set of guidelines for said exchange. Farmer Johns, listen up: The traded tractor should be equivalent to a Kubota B2320, be in new or nearly new condition, 23 horse power and have a front loader and trailer hitch. The length of the vacation will be based on the value of the tractor, but for all of you wondering how much a vacation for six normally costs, rental of a three-bedroom residence for six is $1,935 in high season, including breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner daily. Think you’ve got the goods? All those interested can send photos to the Reefs at TheReefsTractor@gmail.com. And if you’re wondering, that’s what the Reefs’ tractor used to look like. No wonder they need a new one.
