Wow. that's cool. Lucky, I plan on flying down there with my wife and spending enough time to get a real feel for the place..... Staying on task, the op might seriously consider that as an option, I'm no expert on Argentinian boat sales or the route to brazil. but from what i understand it's pretty straight forward.

Do you know of any websites that sells sailboats in Argentina or brazil?

Corinthians just won the Libertadores! Corinthians 2, Boca Junior 0. Time to celebrate and drink a few more beers. Tomorrow I'll post a few boat sites for you, but don't expect too much. The US has the best boat selection and prices at the moment.

Re: Best way to go?

My head is starting to recover from last night's victory celebration. It's always a big party when Brazil and Argentina play the final game of the Libertadores, especially when Brazil wins! As promised, below are some of the best sites to look for boats in Brazil. Don't expect too much. Prices are in Reais (1USD = 2R$). You'll find that used boats are very expensive here. Argentina has better prices. You might find a foreign-flagged cruising boat for sale in Salvador, Bahia (usually someone who arrives, falls in love with a Brazilian, goes native and decides to stay). Just be aware that foreign-flagged boats can only stay 6 months in Brazil. The only advantage to buying a Brazilian-flagged boat is that you have unlimited time to explore the very long and beautiful coast of Brazil. The current restriction on time is absurd as it is impossible to do much in 6 months on this coast.

Boat brokers and sites in Brazil:

BL3 Escola de Iatismo - Classificados de veleiros
...::: LAY LINE Yacht Broker s:::...
Veleiros usados a venda barcos a vela catamar novos vender veleiro
Veleiro Monocasco e Multicasco em Náutica - MercadoLivre Brasil

In Argentina you could start with the "Mercadolibre" site (like e-bay):

Embarcaciones a Vela en Náutica - MercadoLibre Argentina

If you're serious about buying in Argentina, let me know and I'll track down some better sites for you. Prices in ads are either in USD or Argentine pesos (1USD = 4.2 pesos).

Good luck!

Yachtworld doesn't turn up much. I did a filtered search for used sailboats from 25 to 45 feet in Brazil and only one boat turns up- a Swan.

I noticed that after I posted. Most ads are for new boats.

A swan is a nice boat.

Re: Best way to go?

Nac-pro, here's one within your budget:

Veleiro FAST YACHTS FAST 395 40 pés 1989 - Usado

These boats have a good reputation in Brazil as a fast cruiser. It's a Frers design.

If you can go over your USD100K budget you might want to look at a Bramador 34 built in Argentina. You can get an almost new one already equipped for a bit more. The Bramador is a nice boat.

Boat Show ::. Mercado nutico: barcos, lanchas, jets, veleiros, escunas, inflveis, jetboats

The video link above is a delivery from Buenos Aires to Rio, bringing a Bramador 34 to the Rio Boat Show. It also serves as a reminder that the stretch of coast from the River Plate to Florianopolis, Brazil can be a pretty tough patch of water! Even Slocum managed to lose a boat here once.
