Re: Need help buying a good used sailboat/live-aboard
I think you might like this one, it is a Tayana 37 but is the extended 45 LOA version with 40' on deck. I think you will find the Tayana 37 by Bob Perry is a boat that anyone here will tell you is very nice, and though I cannot say for certain what condition this one is in, not having seen it in person, from the ad here 1981 Ho Hsing Tayana 37 Double Ender Full Keel sailboat for sale in Texas
it appears to be in good shape. Check out the ad, look at the photos and let us know if this is something you might like, also it might help if we knew your more or less budget number. To some people $500,000.00 is a good number, to others the $54,000.00 asking price on this one might be too much.
As with all used boats you will get to do a little work, but that will help you personalize it.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
