I am considering purchasing a sail boat as a live-aboard. My wife and I have discussed this and we are both in agreement!!!
We are looking to purchase the sailboat and moor it in Victoria BC, where I will attend school and my wife will work. Most of the sailing we expect to do will be in the Gulf Islands or Desolation Sound. We may however, at some point consider sailing to Hawaii or even further.
We have looked at many different boats, however, after looking at an older Hunter Legend 37 my wife really likes the idea of an island berth. I don't think we want a Hunter (not sure why). We began looking at the C&C 37+ because of its performance qualities as well as the fact it has an island berth. We are now considering buying a C & C 37+ from Eastern USA and hauling across the country.
I'd like some advice / opinions / suggestions. Are there some design concerns about these boats that I should be aware of?
