Input on a vessel

So I have a few interested individuals willing to back my sailing PTSD program and possibly invest in a vessel. For distance passages in multi conditions, blue water and northern elements year round, what vessels do you have experience with that would suit a crew of 5-6 in the 40 foot range? I'm more interested in robustness and simplicity in lieu of luxury. Once I leave port I want to be as self sufficient as possible.

Re: Input on a vessel

That could (should) be a fairly substantial boat... what's the budget?

Well, right now I need to come up with some options. Either an older boat and retrofitted and modernized ant the shipyard in Bath, Maine where my connections are or something ready to go. My guess is it's going to be an older boat that needs elbow grease. I'm tasked with finding prices on both ends of the spectrum. The design won't be setting any records, rather something that can handle all weather with common sense at the helm. I'm basically scoping out all designs and prices at the moment and going back to the backer of my project with all the options on the table.

I did tell the investor that a cheaper boat, say 50-60k would require outfitting an updating where as a turnkey boat would run ballpark 75-100k.

Re: Input on a vessel

Pushing the boundaries a bit but I think my first target might be a Passport 40.

Re: Input on a vessel

If you have your organization registered as a charity, you could start looking for boat donations, specifying what kind of boat you want. I think there are people out there who would consider donating their boat to such a good cause.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

We are currently in the works of registering as a non profit. Eventually I would like to get to 501-c3 status, but you need to be established for sometime to be granted that. At this point in time it's all logistical work. Planning different routes and legs, needs of a vessel regardless of size and design as well as different plans for passages. After seeing how other veterans lives have changed through sailing I want to cater everything from short trips like from Atlantic city to the Statue of Liberty and back, to the Bahamas, the UK etc. I realize that a lot of veterans don't have the ability to up and leave for months at a time so I want to have plans laid out so that every vet can have the opportunity to crew on this boat whether it's for 4 days or 4 months.

Re: Input on a vessel

Otter,

You need to check with a CPA. I routinely work with a CPA here to create startup 501c3's. While it's true you have to be established first to create the c3, that litterly means you have to establish the corporation first then conver it to a c3, there is no operational timeframe needed.

Re: Input on a vessel

Since your connections are around Bath, how about a Hinckley Bermuda 40 "plastic classic"?. Prices vary a lot depending on equipment and condition, it seems, but good all-round boat:
