Which is best market place for hunting an offshore sailboat ?
I have this question in my mind. I apologize if it has been discussed many times, but, for a low budget sailor hunting with only one bullet (a.k.a. one flight ticket).
What is the place to visit and walk hunting for a passage maker boat ?
So the best boat will be the best one I can find at the place I arrive. Unfortunately where I live is not an option, because due to import restrictions and market size the offer is very small and extremely expensive.
So, should I go to some port in Spain, France, Greece, Florida, California, or some island in Caribe, or… ? Where is the biggest and best market place to arrive flying and depart sailing ! (avoid spot situation because I will not do at least next 2 years. Where is the Outlet of the sailboats
Kind of boat; Al, steel or plastic in that order.
Monohull, cutter, sloop, ketche
Draft, as few as possible, no hurry. Priorities; Safety, comfort, simplicity, speed
Budget around 20-30k and considering to put 10k extra for refiting.
Best regards from the Rio de la Plata river, down here in South Atlantic !
26´ PRF, sloop.
