Andyman I also like the Newports. Go here: Newport, Neptune, Gulf sailboats built by Capital Yachts tons of good info and some boats for sale. Also keep an eye on ebay. I've seen several there.

New Sailor Looking For Boat

Hi y'all. I live in SW Florida (Bradenton) and I am a converted and beginner sailor. I'm in the hunt for a family boat that is easy to sail, comfortable, and seaworthy. I've been out shopping and I really like the Capitol Yachts Newport line. I'd like a used 28'-30' boat. I don't mind traveling to get a boat. I've seen several in the Carolina's that were sold by the time I made contact. My budget only allows for a max of $10,000.

As I said, I like the Newport line because of the amenities, the great interior and sleek lines. However, being new to the sport, if anyone can suggest a similar boat I'd certainly like to take a look.

Thanks folks, I look forward to joining your nest.
