Aussie & Kiwi yachts
I''d like to throw this one to the panel...
all the info & advice in this section "buying a boat" is very interesting & helpful,and id like to ask if any of you have heard of,or had experience with well made,solid,seaworthy australian or NZ yachts of good reputation(or the equally good ones,but that dont have the golden reputation!),in particular for cruising the aussie coastline & the Sth pacific,around the 25 to 32 ft range.
you just dont see all the makes mentioned on this board ie,westsail,tayana,tartan,allied,hallberg-rassys etc.
we get the occasional Bristol,Valiant,hallberg-rassy etc,but not many.
oh we got plenty on the market,Roberts,Endeavour,Miller & Whitworth,Cavalier,John Pugh,Swanson,Farr,Oyster,S&S(sparkman & stephens)etc.but due to the lack of aussie messege forums like this one how you supposed to get info & swap thoughts/opinions on these,
if you dont know a salty old seadog to give you advice,you can get a bit lost.
thanks for any help,
