No, I am still in Cambridge UK. looking to get over and start have a look at boats in the USA. In may this year, we brought a FARR 45 back and it was well equipped. So it might be a plan. I have to say, I like the Tradewind 35 nice and solid.

Good choices but difficult to find in the UK.
Contessa has already been mentioned - think also of 35' +/- from Westerly, Oyster, Moody, Sigma, Rival, Sadler, Sweden Yachts.

Again. Tartan 37. Bam! (mine is for sale since I bought the B 40) Windvane. Sextant and training. (both of which I need and will have before I go), solar (and wind?) (and maybe shaft) power generators. Sat phone or Short wave radio. Engine parts. EPIRP. Zodiac....

I prefer something in the ~35-40 range. If you're talking about bluewater voyaging, then these are my choices.

What piece of equipment would I take? Self-steering...preferably a windvane.

Looking to live aboard when returning to UK, great minds than mine

Thanks in advance.
Living the dream.
1. Depends on your needs and where you want to take the boat. What works for others may not work for you. Is this your leaving the rat race boat or your living aboard in the UK boat?
2. Kind of depends on you figuring out #1.
3. "Piece" as in one? Perhaps I don't understand your question.

In any event, enjoy the journey.
