How about a Pearson Triton - 28 ft. and at least one has been all over the globe: Atom Voyages | Voyaging Around the World on the Sailboat Atom with James and Mei

Or maybe a Flicka

Why do you ask?

Why not try the sticky bluewater boat thread at the top of the buying a boat forum for some ideas? Welcome aboard!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!

The other issue here is, he is in Slovenia, not sure there are too many Pearson Tritons or Flicka's over there! But i would assume the sticky bluewater in the Buying forum would have some examples available in Europe!

Welcome aboard!

A prime example of an old time sailing vessel is the "Kon Tiki."

Thumbs up

Pearson Triton looks beautiful, strong and cheap; the nearest Pearson Triton is in Florida and Maryland; the idea/ dream is to fly in USA, buy a Pearson Triton and make a transatlantic trip with it ; than sell it on east Atlantic (couse who will need such boat in Adriatic) or something
but let's wait for more posts from europe
