What boat to buy for long voyage

I hope this is not too rude but I noticed in the e mail of jan 19 that you mentioned a Kalik 40 as a boat for sail in your area. I have been looking at a Kalik 40 but can not find any information, reports, or even history of the manufacture anywhere. Do you know anything about this boat? I chartered one in the BVI''s back in the 80"s and as best as I can remember it was a very nice boat. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

60,000 budget? thats easy. Get a Triton for 8,000, spend 3,000 adding everything you need/want as far as electronics etc, and spend the extra 39,000 on cruising a few years earlier.

There are many boats that would fit your under $60,000 criteria. Most would be less than 35 feet long. Keep in mind you will probably add around $10,000 to $30,000 in cost to outfit the boat for cruising. We cruised for three years on our Downeast 32 and it proved itself to be a great cruising boat. There are several on the market (including mine) for less than $40,000. One thing to keep in mind when choosing a boat under 40 feet for cruising is that you will require one with adequate water and fuel tankage or a way to add more. Adding 10 jerry jugs to the deck not only unsightly but also hurts the boats sailing performance.

One more thought - the less you spend on the boat, the sooner you go cruising. The view from 30 foot boat in Fatu Hiva is exactly the same as the multi-million dollar 60' Oyster next to you. We listened to the Pardeys when they recommended to "go now" and our only regret is that we didn't go sooner.

Moana-

You do realize that the thread you're replying to is over FOUR YEARS OLD. Chances are very likely that if they haven't bought a boat yet...they're not going to. Please check the dates on posts before you reply, and try not to revive dead threads.

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.
