We looked at three Sabre 38 Mark I's recently. One had a split main cabin, I think they made about 25 of these. Not for everyone. Of the other two, one was a wreck and the other was very well kept. If owning a 30 year old boat doesn't bother you, this last one would keep many a sailor happy.

To the OP - if you do a search on YW and type in your parameters you'll get a lot of boats to peruse. The east coast is like a boat mall, plenty to choose from. But keep in mind not all boats are accurately presented on the Internet. Looked for signs of aged photos and be prepared if you go to see one.

I'd also recommend you call a local broker and ask for soldboats info once you whittle down your list to a manageable size. This will help you in the offer stage of the process.

I listed the boats that we took pics of that are still for sale in the boat buying assistance thread - last page. If any of those boats look good to you, PM me for pics and comments.

FWIW, I'm in complete agreement with those who recommend a boat that sails well in lighter air. Nothing can spoil a nice day sailing worse than having to turn to the iron genny.

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

I'll keep my 93 Beneteau. I am amazed at how well built it is regardless what people say about Bene's. It always amazes me how well the factory systems have held up vs some of the older boats that i have been on/worked on(70's & 80's). I think it is a very well engineered boat.
It sails well, maneuvers fantastic and is family friendly.
I'd love a 2013 Jenneau 41DS though. ($303k)

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

I'm assuming the OP has already set aside a cruising budget and the 100000 represents a fraction of his budget allotted for the boat.

If I only had 100k I agree I would buy a 30k boat

Re: What would you buy for $100,000?

Some Beneteaus try and emulate the racing hulls and are subsequently squirrely, while some tweak those lines enough to be more comfortable for the cruiser and defeat the purpose of performance.

For $100,000 I'd spend $30,000 on a boat, $15,000 on upgrades and keep the rest for a cruising budget.

I'd get 25,000 cartons of Haagen Daz - not sure what flavour, though.

I would buy the Nautor Swan for 85,000 in Buford Georgia on yacht world.
