Boat of choice and why?

Check out a Searunner 37 trimaran. It could be the boat for you.

Dreams of Sunsets, Rum & Island Life

Yeshua,

I think you will want to learn how to sail first on a small boat like 25 feet or so. Keep that boat for a couple of years and learn on that one. Then, you will better know what you want...

MacGregor 25 to Bahamas?

Cruising Catamarans Offshore

Dman:
Yes the greatest stability of a catamaran may be upside down but the greatest stability of a monohull is resting on the bottom of the ocean! I think that cruising catamarans capsise about the...

Cruising Catamarans Offshore

Check out the Catalac8m. I lived aboard for over a year and cruised to the Bahamas. Nice cruiser 27 ft by 13''10" beam with about 28" draft and 7,000 lbs displacement. It has one outboard that steers...

Monohull vs cat on extended passage?

Monohull vs cat on extended passage?
