If you're a person, whether young or old, that hungers for adventure - a sailboat, whether luxurious or spartan, is pretty much the best way in the world to go find it.

That is why getting my boat is only part of my dream, sailing to the tropics another part...the most important part for me is to share it.

Marketing makes people think we need a new 6 figure yacht, but according to a sailnet poll...82% of boats are 20+years old while 4% are 1-5
