Ilenart is on a distinguished road
Would suggest that you will either have to re-think your requirements for a 38ft plus boat, or your budget, especially first year expenses / additions. In Oz a 38ft+ yacht for A$90k is probably going to require a 25-50% budget for additions / upgrades. Running costs for the first year expenses will probably be $15-20k. You also need to factor in the time / cost of work / upgrades; very few yachts on the market for your length / budget would be capable of an extended passage unless a fair amount of work was carried out.

Good luck, Ilenart
