Sailboat 37'-45' Center Cockpit 1987 or Newer

I'm looking to buy a sailboat at least 37' but not more than 45'. It should be 1990 or newer, fiberglass hull, diesel inboard, center cockpit design. I don't want a project boat; It needs to be seaworthy but I can put some work (spelled m-o-n-e-y) into it. I'm located near the upper half of the Chesapeake Bay but am willing to consider boats from up and down the East coast - provided they are capable of being sailed and/or motored to Annapolis. My budget is less than $90k. Please PM me if you have, or know of someone who has, a boat fitting this description. Thanks.

p.s. I would consider boats slightly older (1980's) but they would have to be immaculate, refitted, clean and dry, and modernized.

Call your local banks. I am sure one fitting your needs and budget is in a foreclosure bin on some bank managers desk. With the economy down, people are walking away.

Re: sailboat 37'-45' center cockpit 1987 or newer

Pretty much exactly my search criteria when I started boat shopping with one addition, cutter rig.

Have you tried yachtworld.com? Gives you a lot of search options to filter the for sale list including age, price, length and center cockpit.

Never thought of that. Have you or anyone else tried this?
