Re: An idea for a new voyaging sailboat

I didn't really say it was a new idea. I wouldn't be surprised if the price goes up a bit (even to $250k or $300k), but I think it's possible if you leave off all the unnecessary junk that makes sailboats considerably more expensive as John explains. I think he's suggesting that if there's enough interest (which may appear to be sustainable and create a good business model), it could be done. I hope it has at least some chance of working out... or I could just buy a 20 year old boat, fix it up and go sailing! This would be a bare-bones cruiser- no watermaker, no genset (so no fridge, heat or a/c).
