LiveAboard, Cheap Sailboat, With Shallow Draft for Inland Waterways.
Dear Sailnet Community,
What kind of boat should I buy if I wanted a live-aboard boat for 2 (at least), could not spend very much money, and wanted a boat that would travel the inland waterways of the world, especially ireland and europe. Ireland has 4ft drafts. Id like a sail boat. Id like shallow drafts. Id like a lot of space, speed, and safety. I have been looking at westsails, and tartars, but they all have deeper drafts then allowed on the waterways of ireland.
I have about 50,000 dollars, and want to keep it under 40 ft. And I want a boat that is safe, lots of storage.
What boat should I get?
