Hi Paulo,

Couple of questions I ask when buying a boat. What are you using it for? and How much?Looks (to an extent)

I dont know how people sail here but its about weeknight races and weekend regattas(if theres one)/family cruising. Now if you have a limited budget, I cant see how you wont have a look at the Fareast.

Because truthfully, the only boats you can have (weeknight racing/crusing) for that amount are 20 year old boats (c&c's, CS, Mirages, Tartans, Pearsons, Contessas, Older Beneteau first series in the great lakes). Now you introduce a boat like the Fareast 26 for $50k approx and it changes the game.

The question is simple, get a 30 year old boat or a new boat for the same intent of use for near the same price. It would be a travesty if they cant market this boat coz it practically sells itself. I'm fairly young, and this is the type of boat that target my demographic.
