Re: Best boat to sail around the world ?

The answer: My boat, a Rafiki-37.

Seriously though, I like most of your options, but there are many others out there. Take as much time as you can to sail, and cruise, on the boats. There is a significant size difference amongst your group. And while most on your list were well built, the majority will also be 25+ years old by now. Be concerned with upkeep. A cheap boat can easily become the most expensive overall option.

Why go fast, when you can go slow.
