Expert advice needed
I am a fairly experienced sailor with couple of offshore passages and couple of old boats to my credit.
I''m moving to Tampa area and looking forward to buy a sailboat between 35-40 feet which I intent to use for offshore races in the Gulf of Mexico and for cruising along the West Coast of Florida ,Keys and the Bahamas.
I have a budget of $100-120K(sailaway)...
Performance and reliability is on the top of my list.For racing I''ll be sailing with a crew of four or five cruising mainly as a couple with occasional guests...
Altough I have couple boats in mind I also would like to get the opinions of the experts of this board.
Thanks and Fair Winds
