Re: Outrageously Good Deal of the Day, Week, Year....
I'm not looking for a Peterson 44 but assuming its in the shape they claim, that isn't a bad price either.
I think if I were seriously looking at boats of this general size to do some long distance cruising I would probably try to find a boat more like the Farr 46- Design # 92 Farr Yacht Design http://www.farrdesign.com/pdfs/092brochure.pdf
Or I would also strongly consider something like the Farr 44- Design number 89 Farr Yacht Design
These are about 2/3 the weight and fractionally rigged.
Otherwise, if I did not mind doing an adaptation, and serious structural upgrades, I might consider a J-130 or a perhaps a J-44.
But hey, that is just me.....
