Re: First Boat for Family of Six (in Oz)

Understand the Hartley issue. I was thinking having seen some of the plans, thought they were both pro abd homemade down under one might work.......with that......skip it.

I would also think there should be some older fiberglass boats from jeanneau, Beneteau to name a couple of european manufactures that seem to sell down there that could work in the mid to upper 20' range. Many also had CB options to handle any draft issues.

Again, as your market is different than mine, hard to say what is available per say. The Farr design 1020 is a good one, one that B Farr used for his family for awhile. Most if these were built down under. Might be a smaller version that would work. (now that I am typing, I do recall a smaller version in a thread that was in Oz for sale, just do not remember the name...980 or 920?!?!?) There is one of these at my marina, quick, lots of room in the cockpit. A Laser 28, also a Farr design might work, not sure if they were made down that way tho.

They'd better love each other because things are going to get close very quickly. We've done it with the grandkids with no problem but had more room then that. Of course kids think of it as an adventure of are usually flexible unless it is raining and they get tired of each other. Than no boat is big enough.
