Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Yep it's the one for sale
. I have actually talked to the owner and although there is the added maintenance
of wood, it seems like a great boat.
It's got a ridiculously efficient layout and inside seems to have the same livable room as a comparable 100 footer.
I figure I could purchase
and completely reno her for right at 50, which even with the added maintenance
of wood, still puts me into a pretty sweet boat for a lot less money
over time than many.
I looked at some glass and steel
boats that were in much worse shape and would have taken more to repair and they were about 3 times the price
I'm looking to be able to live on the boat and run charters to the Bahamas
out of Florida
on her, and I think this one could be a good fit.
One of these years I'll try a sailboat again, but for the size and finish I know I really want, motor
seems the way to go for now.
Plus this size (according to the development team) is about right for mounting a sky sails
system when they become available for pleasurecraft in a couple of years.
