LOL...well having owned an Atomic and survived...I will agree with you about the danger being over-rated CP. I have always thought the gas models were harder to sell and worth less...but I will bow to your expertise...this once!!

As to the Volvo...had one...paid the price. There's a guy with a nice Halberg Rassey at my docks feeling similar pain tonight!

All best...

Good ones go quickly. Check out this website, not sure if you're familiar with it, but you're in the general area and you'll frquently get a better boat through a private sale. A lot of people will try to sell their boats themselves before listing them with a broker. The good ones will often go that way. The others end up on Yachtworld...

specific boats / brokers

Hello,

I don't know how far you are willing to travel, but I can give you two brokers who are very good and trustworthy.

Warren Trafton, at Sailing Yachts Rhode Island, sold me my current boat. He is honest and a good guy to talk to.

It looks like he has an Endeavour, Cal, and maybe a few other boats that would meet your needs.

Tim Mariner at McMichael Yacht Brokers is another good guy. I bought my Newport 28 from Tim.

http://www.mcmichaelyachtbrokers.com/

They have a few boats that would be OK too.

If you speak to either guy, please say hello for me.

Good luck,
Barry

Sadly...

There a lot of really good motorboats, since the price of gas is too high to run those mammoths... But a little selection of sailboats...
All I can find was three options:
Santana ... Anybody?
O'day... fine, I'll take your word for it and go check it out
Buccaneer... Not a good sailer, Sailhog said...

Oday seems to be the only outstanding option for today's search...
30' sloop, new this and new that, bla bla... oh 3' draft... nice! oh, it's a center keel... 3'6" up, 7'2" down... I didnt know O'days had that?

Pretty straight up guys... Not really interested on a small fish like me though ...

Do people read the first post before replying?

In the first post he made it clear he was interested in comfort more than speed. So why do some of you keep bringing up racing?

Question Buccaneer 32?

Hi again,
So any knowledge on Buccaneer 32? I just can find info on 24-27' models online. It's made by bayliner in 70s and that's pretty much all I can find...

There are some good deals at upstate NY... Fresh water sailed boats... Is anyone has an idea about transportation costs? It's about 600miles...

Hi Merttan ,
For what your going to do with the boat it sounds like the two you started out with would be good choices . The Islander is one of my personal favorites having owned one . I love that boat , its got everything going for it that your looking for . The Catalina is probably just as good although I have friends that owned them I have not spent much time aboard under-sail , probably less than a week in all . So my bias is in favor of the Islander only because of the amont of time I have spent on my own . Its a very forgiving , fast boat that loves weather. The cockpit is more than generous for a boat of her size .
I dont know how many your going to find in your neigborhood so that may affect your purchase however finding a Catalina is usually not a problem and may lend its self to bargan hunting . The Buccaneer I have no clue . At this point I think it boils down to which one you like the looks of , they are both just fine for what your looking to do .

Happy hunting,
Paul

Its hard trying to nap with that bilge pump alarm going off all the time

For the smaller bayliner bucaneers, ie under 27', I would skip those personally, The 30 and 32 were reasonable sailers IIRC. With one if not both of those being designed by Bill Garden, the 30IIRC was definetly designed by him. Rinell (sp?)a power boat company at the time also had a pretty atrocious looking and semi atrocious sailing boat also.
