marty, thanks for the links...I will check them out. soontobe, Yes, itīs legal, but often there surely are import duties of 60% or more that make these purchases not worthwhile. what Iīd like to know is: what exactly makes a bluewater boat a bluewater boat? Is it just a matter of stronger rigging?

THere are two passport 40's here in Alameda, both under 140k. I have been on both of them. While one is better than the other, both are in decent condition. Great boat to live aboard and they will take you most anywhere if outfitted right. Do a yachtworld search and you will see them.

No need to log in. Just go to the main page, under the pull down menu "boats" on the top bar, go to "advanced search" and type in your criteria.

I am new to sailing and to this forum, and Iīm humbly asking for advice on purchasing a comfortable, modern sailboat to live aboard. (No, I have not had the chance to read past articles on this forum, but I will begin a search through the archives) Nevertheless, I am curious to post my questions, in case anyone might give some tips and insight.

Iīm seeking a comfortable boat to live aboard here in Brazil and possibly to spend some time in France as well. "Performance" is not a criteria at the moment, but the most comfort possible (like air conditioning, space, good bathrooms etc) is important to me.

My budget is probably not ideal: 90 to 100 thousand euros (140,000 USD) but it would be interesting to know what the experienced members consider the best cost/benefit in the (used or new) market for that budget level.

Iīm willing to travel to purchase the boat, so I would like to know which countries may offer the best prices. Here in South America, for example, there seems to be a big difference in prices between Argentina and Brazil, for example.

From what I have seen, boats smaller than 35 feet seem too cramped. The nicest sailboats I have seen so far at some Jeanneaus and Beneteaus (37 to 40 feet), but these are expensive here in Brazil due to high taxes and import duties. Perhaps there is a more efficient market in France?

Well, thanks for any input. Anyone wanting information about Brazil, donīt hesitate to ask.

Daniel

Considering that the OPs first and last post on the board was over 3 years ago, he has either found a boat or lost interest.
