Re: Thoughts on Pearson 37 as first boat...?

I think it is great that you are interested in a boat, but the "across the pond" comment definitely caught my ear. I strongly recommend gradual transition beginning with learning how to sail and taking your new boat out with very experienced crew who can teach/support you. Also, classes and certifications are well worth the investment. Anyway, go slow, be safe, take shorter trips and get accustomed to the lifestyle. Then, think about long journeys. I have one friend who purchased a 169 ft. yacht to cruise with his wife and daughter (yes, 169 ft.). After a couple of months, the family decided to go back home. So, be sure your family or significant others are fully "on board" too.
