$25000 does not go very far for world cruising.

This X1000. There is much wisdom in having at a minimum, half the purchase price set aside for repairs and refit. It will need it. Especially when dealing with old boats, which I happen to love as well. Go to your local marinas and talk to people working on their boats in the back lots of the yards. Especially those who are new owners. They’ll tell you the truth. Not to discourage you, but most people buy too much boat and don’t consider the refit costs. SFool is 100% accurate. Listen to him.
