Re: New(er) vs. Old(er)

Generally speaking newer but not new is better. There are so many more factors to consider though. Electronics, sails, rigging, ground tackle, off-shore gear, etc. A 10 year old boat is probably due for new sails and rigging. Older and very well cared for can be fine.

We bought a 13 year old boat and are very happy with it. But it was fully outfitted for long term cruising. We bought it from a couple in the middle of their cruise. However, it did need new sails and rigging.
