Re: Looks good, how well will she sail?
You are correct in that the OP has not said what his need and want of a boat is. If he has the 200K for this boat, another 400k or so in the bank, he would have a VERY NICE boat for 500-700K dollars, vs paying probably over a mil if not 2 mil for a new one like this.
For cruising the salish sea........this would not be the best if one wants to sail. Motor sail......nice boat. It does have a nice pilot house to get out of the drizzle/cold etc. Could make a nice setup from that angle.......I would prefer to sail a bit more than this boat would allow around here. On the ocean for a world cruise......still would prefer some more sail HP, vs motor......I could probably handle it from that perspective, but even so, a 40ish foot sloop rigged boat with and RF main and jib would be faster and probably cheaper to maintain etc.
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
