Help for Virgin Sailboater

Hi there have spent most of my sailing on power 595trader"Helen of Glasgow"all around the west coast of Scotland,am thinking of dramatic
change to motorsailor in warmer climes.Am currently looking at 40 and 46
foot Island Trader,as live aboard etc.etc.These boats are unheard of over
here,so any information from any one with history of these boats would be
great.They look great and seem well fitted out.I may take an exploratory trip over in the next few weeks,I have never been so this will be an adventure.Kind regards to one and all,Gerry

Google them. You'll find lots of information. Personally I've heard mixed reviews, but I have no first hand knowledge.

I'd buy one for the Med... but for your 'Home Waters' I'd look at other boats...
not sure they'd be up to it..

Misread the title.
Here they had to cancel the "parade of virgins" as one got sick and the other wouldn't march alone.
