I thought you said your budget was GBP 100k? And the boat is USD 190k. Those are not too far off.

Am I missing something?

I guess £37k is not a lot to some and could be considered as 'not far off' - it's substantial to me. But that aside, there are one or two other factors:

1. She isn't in the EU, would potentially be liable to VAT on re-entry into UK/EU waters. That's a hefty sum to keep aside. I'll be sailing, I won't have anything set aside - it'll all be spent!

2. Distance from me makes it harder for admin - getting all my stuff to the boat and one or two other personal reasons (Mrs!) etc.

3. I have seen boats that are well below this price and that are still suitable. I know they are out there.

Just because my max budget is £100k, it doesn't mean to say I want to spend it all - I'd rather spend less, have a capable boat and just sail.

More recently I have been looking at boats that would have initially been discounted for one reason or another. My criteria aren't set in concrete, by any means, but I'd like to stick to my guns where possible so that at least I give myself a fighting chance at the right boat/set up.

Hope that helps

Re: Ocean pedigree 40'-47' sailboat.

Maybe I'm biased, but before I took the plunge on their newer Super Maramu, an older Maramu was at the top of my list for most if not all of your requirements. Idiosyncratic, but as far as I can determine, bulletproof for the money:

Hi Sojourner,

I have looked at the Amels. There is no one particular reason as to why I haven't gone for one, as yet. There is no doubting their ability at sea, they have earned a decent reputation. I will try to stick to a centre line bed and cutter rig where possible for now. Not essential, but preferable (if only for a quiet life!).

Having said all that, the one in London does appear to be a good package! Who knows? I still have a bit of time on my side.

Thanks for the nod in that direction...

Best,
SN.
