I am new to sailing and in the middle of a 5 year post outside Stockholm, Sweden. Am working on getting started in sailing and sailing with friends, chartering, etc. but eventually want to buy a boat here and bring it back to the states where I would sail in new england.
I would like to take advantage of the fact I am here and get something that is unique to this part of the world but would last my family (wife and 2 small kids) the next 15 - 20 years.
Could maybe spend low 6 figures and might even try and do something stupid like recruit some more experienced guys to sail it home.
Thoughts on how to approach this? I should add I am not a complete landlubber as I have windsurfed for 20 years offshore cape hatteras, maui, etc. so I know a bit of sailing tiny rigs in big water, but recognize there is a lot to learn with a boat.
