I am no expert on boat design and build, but before you buy the Hunter 460/466, just look at something like the linked boats below, if your going to cross an ocean. You could probably get them closer to 100,000 and use the $50,000 left over to upgrade/replace anything that's needed. Of course if newer is what your looking for rather than build quaility...?

1979 Hinckley Bermuda 40 MK III Yawl Boat For Sale
Thanks T37Chef, those are all good suggestions. I'm not stuck on getting a new/newer boat. In fact, I really like
the look/layout of the Hardin 45. Which can be found on yachtworld for $100K-$200K Does anyone have thoughts on how the Hardin compares to the Hans Christian?
