camaraderie Try PM'ing CardiacPaul or JeffH as they may have more specific knowledge based on their backgrounds.

micksbuddy I would definitely get a survey by an independent surveyor if it gets to that point. I was intrigued because it does seem to have been pretty comprehensively refitted, so I was trying to get some more info on the basic boat, how well it's built, if it's up to offshore work or other similar information that several on this site seem to quite knowledgeable about. Thanks.


P.S. sorry I put this in the wrong forum, I meant to put it in 'buying a boat'. If it can be moved, that'd be fine with me.

sailingdog In any case- get a survey by a competent marine surveyor of your hiring and choice, not one recommended by the boat broker.

camaraderie Irwin32...he did! It is an "Offshore 40"...that is the brand & model!

Micksbuddy...I assume you are looking at the one on Yachtworld. I am NOT personally familiar with that boat but I can tell you that Lippencott designed good ones and Nautical Development built some very rugged boats. The present owner seems to have done a great job in prepping the boat for extended cruising. I'd say she is worth a serious look.

Irwin32 You need to tell us the actual boat you are considering. Many fine offshore boats were made in that era and many not so fine offshore boats were made then, as well.

Feedback on early 80's Offshore 40' CC

I'm looking for any feedback/experience on early 80's('84 in this instance) Offshore 40' center cockpit. Were they well built, how suitable would one actually be to being sailed off shore as opposed to coastal use? Do they sail well, etc? Thanks.
