in eight years, possibly six, I plan to start cruising with a lady. My plan is to sail primarily in South Florida and the Carribean Sea possibly making an Atlantic crossing.
I am seeking advice as to which vessel to purchase. The following are my core requirements:
1. At least 41' length, 13' minimum beam.
2. Solid core hull.
3. Full Keel.
4. Simplicity and easy access to all systems and fittings.
5. An easy to manage rig.
6. Center Cockpit, not a complete deal breaker but very important to me.
7. $150,000 maximum, I can refit her myself.
I don't mind an old, slow vessel but I do want one with ample living space and a Master's cabin. My sweetheart says no Westsails so I also say no Westsails....I know where my bread gets buttered!
