Looking to buy a boat in Australia
Looking to buy an Aussie Boat
My criteria have finally been approved by the sergeant at arms and I am looking at the purchase of a new yacht.
Essentially the boat will be a houseboat/unit for wife and 2 kids whilst we visit my son at school and then coastal sailing/twilight racing for other periods. For me the obvious choice seems to lie in the 36 to 40 foot Bene, Jeanneau, Hanse etc however I am fairly open minded as the use is fairly basic.
In an ideal world the boat might have an autohelm, twin wheels (much easier to climb around), 3 cabins, reasonable condition etc etc and cost under $A180k.
Not too fussed by age, far more focused on condition.
So if you are on the East Coast of oz and are looking to sell your boat as winter bites hard let me know through PM and we can talk.
