Buying a sailboat part 2

Has anyone heard about the Amel Sharki built in 1982, 41 feet long. I was told by a broker that this is an excellent boat for cruisnig the Med and crossing the Atlantic and that the craftsmanship on the boat is far superior to both Beneteau and Bavaria.
Right now I am leaning towards the Beneteau Oceanis Clipper 361 built in 2002. And, here is another problem. Buying a boat in Croatia we were told by a broker that the surveryors are useless. That they will say whatever you want them to say for whoever is signing the check. Nancy

thats why YOU hire a surveyor. Don't hire one "recommended" buy the owner, broker or marina.

Nancy,

I hope you are not seriously considering about buying a very used sailboat without an EXCELLENT survey. PS Not all surveyors are created equal. I guess you could try flying someone in? Otherwise, WOW!! I would buy my boat in the US and ship it.

Oh, and word to the wise, be cautious about brokers too. Many are good, honest, and reputable. I have met others that if their mouth is moving, they are lying.

Nancy,

Yes, heard about it. Been aboard a marumu (whatever it's spelling). Seems to be good froggy construction. Wasn't so hot for the layout, thats kinda subjective tho. The French seem to like a lot of bunks and stuff while I like large living areas (galley, saloon, dedicated shower and suchlike). The hard dodgers on the Amel's are not attractive to my eye.

Sharki's have a reputation as well built voyaging sailboats even though they are a bit "different" in style. If you like them, they are good ocean boats to consider. I will also say...SURVEY or you will regret it!
