It would help if you said what your budget was. The range of boats that you might have a choice of can vary incredibly given the lack of criteria. It sounds like you want to round Cape Horn, which is not an undertaking to be taken lightly.

I'd also ask what your sailing experience background is. Given how vague your initial question is, I am guessing that you are relatively inexperienced.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

budget is abt 200k max for a used boat. My only cruising experience is sailing a 40ft trimaran from callao to galapagos to isla cocos to costa rica. thanks for your comments.

First, please don't spam the forums by posting the exact same thread in multiple forum as you have.

Second, a 45' bluewater cruising boat in ready-to-go shape is going to be difficult to find for your budget, especially since I recommend saving at least 15-20% of the total budget for refitting, upgrading or modifying any boat you do get. Boats are not like cars, and often need some modification to suit the way you are going to use it. I would highly recommend looking more at the 40' size rather than the 45' size.

As for your experience sailing the 40' trimaran, was that a charter? If so, were you the captain or just crew? What other sailing experience do you have???

What is your time frame for purchasing the boat? When do you plan on buying the boat, when do you plan on leaving for this trip.

sorry didnt know that. I will erase the other threads.
noted 40ft would be better. On the galapagos trip I was crew. I do have a captain certification but my only offshore experience is the galapagos trip. I would take a catain on this trip as well. We are no sure of dates yet except Drake and Georgia would have to be Jan-Mar 2011 and Tahiti Oct-Dec 2010. I am being offered a 44ft 2006 dofour performance (longer keel -bulb- with higher rig) in very good conditions at around 380k with full electronics, racing sails etc. but do not know if this boat would be suitable for the trip we want to make, and the price seems to high compared to us based boats. Also boat would be based in callao and used for coastal cruising when not offshore. There are not too many islands to go to near Callao so it will be mostly short (1 week) shore cruising to locations that do not have much boating infrastructure. One reason for looking for a performance boat is that winds along peru´s shore are quite light.

Given that you were just crew on the previous trip... how much sailing experience do you have???

I have sailed a laser for may years and have participated in a few J24 regattas and coastal cruising. The next level was the trimaran as a crew and the only passage making I have made.

Have you looked at the Beneteau First 40.7? That would fit your price range, and definitely falls under the category of performance cruiser.

Define coastal cruising... I'm trying to find out how much big boat, navigation, systems, etc., and sailing experience you have. Someone who has sailed on Lasers for years may be a fantastic dinghy sailor but that does not necessarily prepare them for cruising or sailing a big boat. There are far more systems on a 40' cruising boat than on a J/24. Also, were you primarily crew or captain when coastal cruising or in the j/24 regattas??
