I come from another tradition of boats (Scandinavia), so I'm obviously biased. Having said that, I think the boats look like something they're not (traditional), and that always scare me away. It also looks complex, rigging wise, e.g. the bobstay and associated rigging = extra stuff that can go wrong - as well as overly heavy, which not only affects sailing-performance, but also seriously affects the work and strength required by those sailing the boat, especially when the sh1t hits the fan.
Also the interior look like it is homemade from a big chunk of teak - again, that might just be a style, but most Scandinavian boatbuilders would not get away with something that crude.
But as a liveaboard it seems quite nice with a lot of space.

I'm not going to defend any boat I'm looking at. What I am going to do is look closely, pay attention to unbiased and informed opinions, and go in with as much information as I can.

It really depends on the boat, how well you check it out and who your surveyor is.

Good luck in your search.
Sorry blackjenner, if that Hardin was in Anacortes, it's ours now, finally got the docs yesterday! Seems like a great boat if I ever get used to the size. Fair Winds

No need to apologize at all. Yes, we were interested in Windfall. We saw it twice. It has much going for it. I hope you enjoy it very much. Congrats.

We decided on this:



It's a Baba 35 Pilot House cutter designed by Bob Perry. There were only seven made and we have one. We are very happy with it.

Cool

Winderlust's lost is Boasun's gain. And I'm so happy that he passed this beautiful boat by. Because the owner accepted my bid on her and by next weekend after seatrials & survey she is Mine, Mine, Mine. Dang Nabit that latter part sounds to much like daffy duck.
The electronic package is early 1981'ish and should be changed out... After who uses a 12 channel VHF or a Loran C, any more? As with any older boat there are maintenance that are out standing and really needs to be done.
After all, she is a tad lonely and needs someone like myself that will take good care of her. But as I inspected her the first time. Watched how she rolled when the broker stepped on board her (she didn't roll). Very little movement, which to me is a good thing. Now as to her size? I've Captained vessels up to 210 ft. Sailed as mate on much larger ships. So revelancy in her size, she is a tad small from my point of view. Single handed 110 ft crewboats and other vessels. But I will enjoy sailing her and giving her the TLC that she needs

congratulations on your purchase--to the fella who sed that a heavy boat makes ye work more-- BALDERDASH!!!!!! in SPADES. that is such bunk. i have a heavy boat and i love her--is easier to sail than a performance cruiser-- actually responds. she looks traditinal clipper and sails like a dream. i absolutely LOVE my formosa41..... only thing i would replace her with would be a formosa 51 or a hardin 45 or a vagabond 47.
nice heavy boats make cruising a dream not a nightmare. tried performance boats--we were so exhausted at every place we stopped it was ridiculous-we were too exhausted to enjoy much of the areas.. wasnt cruising in comfort. was bashing.
met big winds and seas in my formosa and i was happy-- she is heavy and solid and sails well. loves the wind. easy to steer even when i was hand steering her.

Excellent. I was thrilled when I first bought my heavy ketch (39', 16 tons) and I still love her. I'm happy aboard, sailing or moored. And I singlehand her constantly. Fair winds!

When I read the earlier postings on this thread, I was surprised that nobody pointed out to Smackdaddy regarding the difference between Taiwan built versus Cheoy Lee built boats. Cheoy Lee is a reputable Hong Kong shipyard with over a hundred years of boat building experience (not too many of our yachtyards in the US can make the same claim). They recently moved their operations to southern China (just like everybody else). They built beautifully crafted sailing yachts mostly during the seventies when Hong Kong was still British. They built them to Lloyd's specifications, but I probably would not buy a used Cheoy Lee now mostly because of the teak decks (just personal preference). I don't believe they are building anymore sailboats. Now their business is mostly geared towards custom motor boats of the superyacht variety and ocean going tugs.

As someone that constantly searches all the sail boat sales sites.. I can't keep from lingering on all the "leaky teaky" boat ads.
this one in Deale MD is breathtaking to just view online. I'd dare not go see it. although I could never afford a boat even near that price range.
