Comfortable weekend, or extended offshore cruiser for 2....
Hi Hilega. I chose co-ownership with one other person to help defray the costs on my latest boat (my third), a beautifully maintained 1988 Pacific Seacraft Dana 24, cutter rigged. Moved up from a 1967 Westerly 25, which had an outboard for the auxiliary.
The Dana''s all I could ask for.... strong, well built, safe, trims nicely, small enough to be single-handed easily, big enough to be reasonably comfortable, passage capable, easily moved on it''s trailer from coast to coast.... Only sail addition will be a cruising spinnaker/gennaker for power in light air.
Pricey, yes. However, if you take care of a Pacific Seacraft, it''ll hold it''s value as well as any boat. (But hopefully, I won''t be parting with it anytime soon.)
