advice on buying a cruising boat

My recommendation is that you check out the Bristol 41.1 or even the 38.8 as boats as they would provide better build quality and more performance then these two with the advantage of a centerboard for shallow draft. If you don''t go for a good performing sailboat, skip all the compromises and get a trawler instead.

Good luck.

(PS - I am surprised by the rating of the Endevour 42 - to look at the underbody it doesn''t look like the boat would sail to windward... I wouldn''t bet on it delivering that rating...)
