Re: West to East - Trans-Pacific to Japan

Thanks, was wondering about this idea of a Hawaii/Mexico purchase. So, will add SF to this.

Not sure exactly when Yamaha stopped exporting boats to NA. These days their lineup includes the Y33S, Y31 EX SH, Y-30S, and 26 EX SH.

Here are the Y33S specs, run through a Jp/En machine translator.

I think the new boats are well built, as ever. Not sure though how they would compete, features for price, in a more open market.

Even San Fran might be a 'quitting spot' for some whose dreams didn't quite match reality. Gotta say I kind of like the look of that newer Yamaha 31C - looks like they are still producing pretty nice boats - maybe not a ocean crosser, but a nice looking performance cruiser.
