Best boats for Sea of Cortez sailing
Been a while since I've posted on SailNet, however, we are looking to spend this upcoming sailing season in the Sea of Cortez.
Financially we are planning on over-budgeting so we will have roughly 6 months of finances to last us for the season which leaves us with about $20,000 to spend on a sailboat.
We are looking for a boat in the 30-40ft range.
I was hoping someone can give some insights to the type of boats in this price range that we should look for.
There is a few that we have seen on the market that seem to be in our price, but I am unsure if they would be good for the SOC. To be honest, we are drawn to the looks of the Cheoy Lee, but the spaciousness of the Catalina 34. So any advice on what would be good for the area would help!
Here are some boats that we have "internet" looked at:
'70 Cheoy Lee 36 Clipper
'69 Mariner Ketch 31
'72 Westsail 32 cutter
'87 Oday 322
'89 Catalina 34
'75 Islander 36
