Euro Sailors & boat preferences
I have been thinking of ways to cross the Atlantic & cruise the French Canals without selling my home and one crazy idea i had was to buy a boat complete my adventure and sell it in europe, hopefully for a profit. The big question is what kind of boat? Do euro's want euro boats,(swan, halbergs, waqueas, ect.) or cream of the crop US boats? (old hinckley, old mason, or classic nor'sea 27, bbc 28, flicka) Maybe a leaky teaky or an old classic racer? My theory is a weak dollar and large US inventory has to interest the Europeans. My budget would be less than $100K total. Size does not matter, smaller would be better. Thanks in advance for your helpful comments.
