How much money?

This is not a troll question, but I would like to know about how much money it would cost for a 10 year old boat in excellent condition capable of offshore cruising. I know that the next question is: how much can you spend? The answer is enough to ensure safety, comfort, and speedy passage- at least from the boat''s standpoint. I''m selling my house so I will be able to afford up to the high 300K range. The design must be proven and tailored for offshore use- thinking of a good Perry or Paine design. Construction fit and finish must be exceptional. All appropriate safety systems installed and functional. Please don''t suggest Hallberg-Rassy. Although well designed and constructed, I think they are boring, boxy, and slow. I''m not going around the horn. I also don''t like the center cockpit- bad location- wet and exposed.

Boat length: 40-45 loa
Beam 12.5 to 13.5''
Draft <6''

Thanks-
Mike

How much money?

If I had that kind of money, I''d seriously consider the Outbound 44. It would be new, and the interior is built to order. If you want to have a look.... www.outbound44.com

Good hunting and fair winds

How much money?

Cut your budget by $125k, stick that in a cruising kitty, buy a used 38-44 range, as per the many recommendations of folks with experience who will post later and live like a king. Estimate 15-20% of the boat value for upgrades, then 10% per year for maintenance.

Go with a Hinckley SW 42. You will have to dig a lil deeper for the something 10 years old.

Sceptre 41-43's are very good passage making vessels!

Above notes regarding budgeting is also you need to be prepared for as you will need to spend money getting the boat properely prepped before you leave.

Good luck,

sailingfool will become famous soon enough
Whatever his budget, he must have spent it for the boat of his dreams and be in the midst of his extended circumnavigation, as his last post on Sailnet was six years ago.
