Living the dream.
1. Depends on your needs and where you want to take the boat. What works for others may not work for you. Is this your leaving the rat race boat or your living aboard in the UK boat?
2. Kind of depends on you figuring out #1.
3. "Piece" as in one? Perhaps I don't understand your question.

In any event, enjoy the journey.

Re: Something to take on the World?

I prefer something in the ~35-40 range. If you're talking about bluewater voyaging, then these are my choices.

What piece of equipment would I take? Self-steering...preferably a windvane.

Good choices but difficult to find in the UK.
Contessa has already been mentioned - think also of 35' +/- from Westerly, Oyster, Moody, Sigma, Rival, Sadler, Sweden Yachts.

Buy in the States....much cheaper...and tho American yachts aren't the creme de la creme (my B40 notwithstanding....no complaints here) the Tartan is a fine ocean vessel with many circumnavigations...don't know that there is a better value as far as solid, handling, beauty, design and comfort.

Hi, I'm at Gateway Marina in Trappe across the Choptank from Cambridge. Are you near?
