Re: Do it all boat, Caribbean and Rtw
"colvin, depending upon how far you want to turn up the weird-o-meter."
Guess my weird-o-meter is off the charts. I love the Colvin Gazelle. I sailed one around the Caribbean and had a great time. Full keeled 4 foot draft and short rig makes it a comfy ride with a max heel of about 15 degrees. The mast height was around 40' making many more bridges passable. IMHO as close to perfect as it gets.
There was a yard in India building them new for 40,000usd. leaving alot of room in your budget for outfitting and cruising.
It is going to be my next boat. Anyone in the market for a Bristol 27?
