Boat Suggestion Help Please


There are lots and lots of boats out there that meet your needs. I think something in the 27-28 range would be good. Big enough to fit 2 for a weekend (or longer). Small enough
to be affordable and maintainable.

In no particular order:

Catalina 27
Newport 27, 28
O''day 28, 272
Hunter 27 or 28
Islander 28
S2 8.6

I think you get the idea.

Do you want wheel steering or tiller?
Inboard or outboard?
Diesel or gas?
Emphasis on performance or comfort?

A good place to start looking at lots of boats would be Search for sailboats 27-28 foot, under 20K.

Good luck,
