Cape Fear 38
You''re correct I have heard of the Farr 38. Interesting how the South African boat building industry has made a name for itself over the last years. There are very good boats being built there and they are now getting the recognition. I know that Moorings has most if not all of their cats built in Cape Town, and another Cat has won this year''s Cruising World BOTY competition.
I have found the perfect boat, but it is in Cape Town and financing is a problem from here for a boat registered offshore. Thus my ongoing search and question regarding the T372, one of which is for sale in the PNW. It seems nicely appointed.
You mention "coastal cruiser". Although I will be doing mostly coastal cruising, I absolutely want a boat that can take me to Hawaii and back safely and without having to worry whether she is up to it.
