You don't need a blue water boat for that... a Catalina would do you nicely...

Re: blue water boats

Welcome Aboard Cruisers Forum

IMO if only doing the Caribbean any well built boat will do. The Caribbean for the most part could be considered open water coastal sailing as you are never out of sight for long.

It would be easier for you to find a boat, then ask about it...

Re: blue water boats

See this same question posted again and again - I think the question should be are you a blue water sailor ?. Most yachts are capable or can be suitably equipped, its the skipper that is the unknown quantity. If you have to ask this question in the first place then you probably know the answer.

Nice boatman, now we'll find out about all the Catalina circumnavigators.

a couple barrels tied to a picnic table could suffice
