Well, we are looking at boats again (truth is we've been looking since we got back to the US!). We are looking at a Wellington 47 foot sailboat. We cannot find any information on this boat and wonder if anyone out there has any good/bad things to say about this boat. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
we've been living on//sailing locally our 44 wellington for 7 years. When searching & then deciding on a welly, we boarded 5 or 6. Bill Wellington built the hulls in Jacksonville, FL ours is #5. Each interior/design is custom. We were choosy and have been rewarded greatly. Acquaintances have a 47 ketch and are happy , ours is a cutter. Only drawback 65' mast local bridge requiring dead low for passage to Atlantic. Keel/centerboard makes for great island hopping with great offshore capabilities. If you desire long details - happy to provide. Stress- we love ours!!!!!
