Please recommend what 40'-ish sailing vessel you would want to sail offshore - and around the Capes if required. I will be single-handing the boat.
Total budget limited to say $200,000 all-in.
I'm very much interested in your opinion. Thanks.
With your requirements and budget, I would give this boat a serious look:

2000 Fast Passage 39
