Re: Yamaha 33 as offshore cruiser?

Yeah, Thanks for leaving these older threads. The boat is still older than the thread and any knowledge, old or new is still pertinent. I'm not totally sure but I think the the Yamaha 33 has a cast iron keel like the Yammy 30 has. That info could be a factor in someones purchase choices. Knowing that you gotta inspect that keel annually and change the keel bolts regularly is a considerable amount of extra maintenance that people buying older Beneteaus may not get told by the seller either. Ask me how I know this!
Cheers, Pete

Had a friend that took his Yamaha 33 from Seattle down to the Chilian Channels to Ushuia and then sailed to Australia.

Old threads are a good source of info. I just purchased a Y33 today. I trolled through many old threads on varius forums to help make an informed decision on a boat purchase.

I stumbled across this thread as I was learning about the Yamaha 33. Although the thread is old, the info is still new to me.

Thanks for leaving it open and accessible.

Well, look up 'fellowshi'p [as previously mentioned about 5 years ago]. I knew the 'next' owners who kept her like new. Currently she is sitting opposite our boat in the marina.
A yamaha 33 is a fast, safe, tough boat. Go for it mate.

ciao 4 now

Okay Okay Okay. Just thought others might be interested. There are still quite a few Yamaha 33s that come up for sail and by googling Yamaha 33 one gets to your site, and this old posting. Just thought I'd add my 2 cents and get a dialogue going - which I did. So that's it. Ciao 4 now.
