Greetings,

My wife and I are considering the purchase of a 38'' Endeavour. This vessel would be used for liveaboard and cruising the east coast, Bahamas, Carribean, and later, bluewater to Europe.

If you have experience with Endeavours, we would greatly appreciate your input.

Regards,

Clyde and Diane ee

Saw you message regarding Endeavours and thought I would respond. I have chartered a 42 many times in the Virgins. I do not know what your experience is with these boats but I love them and have started looking myself. I do not plan to buy for some time but have staarted watching prices and doing some research. There is and excellent page on the web for Endeavour owners. It is www.members.aol.com/endvr32/html. They have members comments, owners may give testimonials about their boats, a history of the company etc. Very informative. It appears the page has not been updated in some time, not sure why. Regardless if you have not viewed it to date it should be of interest. These are great heavy boats with beautiful wood throughout. Not for racing but very comfortable and safe. The above page will tell you about things to look out for etc. Good luck.

My family has owned two Endeavours.I have also assited a fellow who was putting one back together that had come out of the charter trade. Endeavours are hard to peg. There is a lot that is right about them. The other poster touched on some of Endeavour''s better attributes. They are good for their intended purpose, coastal cruising places like Florida or the Bahamas or the charter trade in the Virgin Islands. They are not in any shape or form my idea of an offshore capable boat. I know that they have been used out in the Atlantic with some degree of success but getting to see them in an intimate way, IMHO these are not designed and built for prolonged offshore use without a lot of upgrading.

Jeff is correct. Endeavours are a very capable coastal cruiser.
The 38 is a beautiful boat.And built fairly well. If you are still looking , check-out the center cockpit model.
