Help w/ Boat Search
First of all hello all, I am a first time poster, but long time lurker on sailnet.
My fiance and I have finally decided not to buy an overpriced house or condo in MA and are now starting the search for a year-round liveaboard approx 50ft. The purchase does not need to take place for another 12 months, so we''re not in a rush.
I would like to keep the budget between $200k-275k, and the boat will be used over the next few years in the following manner.
Lived aboard year round, sailed transatlantic at least twice yearly along with multiple trips from MA/CT to FL & the Virgin Islands. Used quite a bit for entertaining customers and extended family and will be sailed to Sydney, AU in 2007.
Looking for opinions and recomendations, we are knowledgeable about the different brands and their limitations/advantages but I want to explore every direction as this will be a longterm investment.
