Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)

Sadly that is OZ SloopJon, every boat here is twice the price it would be in the states.
With our dollar now higher, so many sailors I know are seriously looking at buying in the US and sailing home. Also I am lead to believe that most of the US Columbia 34's were built in the early 70's, the ones built over here were built in the lare 70's/early 80's.

I agree the looks of the Columbia's are not to everyone's taste.
