In that case sounds like a fantastic plan. I've "lost" many thousands on boat sales but it has always been worth it.

As you probably know already the cost of maintenance and getting the boat ready for cruising is going to be the real kicker anyway. The amount you lose on the sale probably less.

Your best bet to sell in the Southern Hemisphere is probably in Australia. You will be under less pressure to sell in Brisbane because berthing and maintenance costs are lower there. Very expensive to keep a cat in the Sydney area.
