Dream of Sailing as a living

Jeff & James,

James, I''d stay away from Pacific Seacraft if you don''t want to pay a heafty price. You can buy two Beneteau 42cc''s for one 42ft P.S. And from what I''ve read (since I can''t find anyone on here willing to answer my questions on them) the 42cc''s are great bluewater boats. Just type it in a web search and you can find lots of articles from third parties, to parties with an investment in it, and they both say the same thing; it is well designed and great for both coastal cruising and bluewater (it''s designed for bluewater though, to make Jeff happy). The price for a new one is about $185k at a sailaway readiness. Great standard features. Since it is a new designed I really couldn''t tell you used prices, but in a couple years, you might be able to find a couple 5 yrs old ones on sale, for maybe 1/4 the price. That''s what I''m planning to do. If anyone got any other ideas, please tell...I''m a humble person.
