Re: Looking for budget bluewater cruiser suggestions

We bought a 36 ft Union (fully equipped) for $40k and have put in maybe $4k, we have already sailed across the Caribbean, and are heading across the Pacific in Feb. The key is look for a boat with owners who just want to get rid of it. There are a lot of blue water boats in the 35 ft range that sell cheap because they are too small for floating condos, but they make great passage boats.
