sailingdog I don't know of any cost-effective alternatives to buying a boat. Most charter companies don't do long-term charters at a rate that is affordable, but you could talk to one of them and see if you could work something out. Your best bet is going through a private owner, though most private owners I know would not want to risk their sailboat in unknown hands for any amount of time, much less six-months.

Part of the problem is insurance and liability. Most private owners can't lease/charter their boats due to restrictions on their insurance, and most companies won't do it because it is more profitable for them to do weekly/weekend charters.
