You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hi. I purchased my first sailboat at 24 as well. I used to own a 1977 Catalina 27 and to this day ( I am 44 now) it was the sailboat that I had the most fun with. The boat sailed easily, was easy to maintain, I could have a small group out and have a great time . The only thing about that boat that I did not like was that it had an outboard engine that just did not have enough power to get me out of a pinch when it was really windy, ie: docking. I later went on to have an Ericson 38 and then a Hans Christian 33 which I lived aboard for a few years. My main advice is: buy a boat with an inboard engine, you will loose a bit of space below on some models but the prop being low on the water is what you need. I think that the 27 is a beautiful boat as well. I hope this helps.

I was looking for something similar to your criteria three years ago and settled on a Great Dane 28 and I'm very happy with my slow boat as Giu calls them. One of the best things about this boat is a very active owners group. I didn't think about that when I bought, but an active group of owners is a real asset when it comes time to upgrade of effect a repair. I find the following site beneficial when evaluating a boat. Sail Calculator Pro v3.52 - 2000+ boats.

Here is a link to the GD 28 site.

Good luck,

Brave hearts and fair winds,

Chauncey

I would vote for the C&C 27 because of its great sailing performance. There should be dozens of them up & around Canadian waters.
The Cascade 29's were built in Portland,OR during the hey day of fiberglass boat building. Many were owner finished-interiors because sailors could buy them inexpensively by finishing the interiors themselves. There are many Cascades still sailing today up in the Pacific Northwest. They had a loose network of sales outlets when sailboat production flourished during the 1970's.
The Cascade 29 was designed by Robert A. Smith, formerly with Sparkman & Stephens. Cascade Yacht Builders built boats from 1956 - today. Cascade still produces their C-29, although the molds have been relocated to Warrenton,OR [across the bay from Astoria] but productiion of new Cascade 29s will begin this fall.

Just a little trivia re: Cascade Yacht Builders
