boat offer fell through

my offer on a sailboat fell through. I'm kinda bummed but I just need to save up some more money. The boat I want is the 'sell everything and liveaboard' level but owning a home and a mortgage and buying/keeping a sailboat is ot of my range for now. But the dream lives on and I'm gonna use this waiting time to stay fit and practice my knots at home this winter.

No worries mate, there's lots of boats in the sea, so to speak, and I don't believe we'll see a shortage of used boats in our lifetime. Keep your head up and keep the dream alive, it's worth it.

Re: boat offer fell through

Are you stuck on one model/brand of boat? There maybe many other similar boats to be had. If the condition is not up to par, lower your offer price to compensate for the additional work.

You can also consider another cruiser of similar design, i.e.. Jeanneau for Beneteau or Najad for Hallberg Rassy.
