Because an open 40 will set you back 300k at least.

If you know a FREE one please mail me, and I will pick it up.

It might be on the coast of Western Australia in a month or so and you'll probably hear about it on this forum when it "arrives".

- 30-42 feet in length
- double circumnavigation non stop southern route
- production design and readily available (USA / Canada)
- no "major" modifications to hull necessary
Not sure why boat needs to be readily available in Canada / USA - if going RTW, twice And why a boat located anywhere on a continent is "readily available".

But anyway, their are only 3 choices:-

1) Beneteau
2) Hunter
3) A Seadog

With the last choice will not be an easy find in the US (only a couple as far as I know) but for $100k you could have mine. Delivered Alternatively ship one over to the US. Plenty of change left from $100k to stockup on beer

Ok, which Bennie-boat - model and year? I can use the hunter as a pilot to check for waves up ahead of me.

Wild Eyes cost the Sunderlands less than $90k, if post #69 of this thread is to be believed:

There's a free one floating around the Indian Ocean without a mast. You may have heard about this.

Oh THAT one! No Mast?? Should've told me that! That's rather cheap deal since the mast is where all the $$ are.

Well, I'lll just hop in me ol' Pogo II 6.5 and skiddle down south and pick it up then, won't I?

S&S - you got that right! Alas, after looking over YachtWorld today, my mind drifts back to steel boats. I just love the look and the material.
