HongKong Jon: Before you order a new Jennie,
you should check out the used market. My
discussions with a Jennie broker over the summer indicated that the economy crunched a
number of orders for new boats and has left
some nearly new...and I mean with residual
new boat smell...on the market at significant
discounts. Location could be a problem but
heck, you always wanted to sail from the
US northeast to Hong Kong anyway....didn''t
you?

Thanks Halyardz
Interestingly I was told last August that I would have to wait 10+ months for delivery. This has now shrunk to 5 to 6 months so you could well be right. I will check it out before I part with the not inconsiderbale deposit; as in 15% of base boat price plus 100% of selected options!
US North East to Hong Kong an interesting trip. Maybe next year.....

You could do what the majority do and get a Morgan OI 41 and stay at a dock in Florida and in very good weather go to the next spot. Thats not a bad plan.

Offshore requires a heck of a boat and crew.

Why not buy something for coastal and see how it goes.

Ahoy wannabe sailor, Once again jeff has it about right but if your brave enough you could look at an older ocean cruiser with lots of sea miles and save some. Or you could buy a really old around the world singlehander like I did this year and spend your money on an upto date retrofit.By boat built in 1963 is a huge project but it''s worth it. Then again you could buy the best you can afford and trow your dock lines off and wing it. I mean you''ve got to hit land sometime!! Big Red56
