any info on this boat would be appreciated. the big question is if it can handle blue water with safety and comfort. thanks. david.
Without a doubt. IMHO, maybe Bob Perry's best production cruiser. Drawbacks? Just be aware that these boats are now 20+ years old. You're into the realm of the boat maintenance factor now. Were the previous owners on top of it, or where they slackers? Of course the other option is to buy a new one:
Norstar Yachts - Norstar 40
(Same boat, different name)
