But why do you want the experience?
There's a wide range of experience that owners of the larger boats have. Most of it comes from time and the School
of Hard Knocks.
As examples: if you just want to park your boat in a marina and drink cocktails as the sun goes down not a lot of experience is needed, if you're happy to stick to sheltered water and good weather, if you have a group of experienced friends who will crew for you, or plan to pay a professional then again, not a lot of experience is needed.
Or, if you've plenty of time, a sheltered environment
is not an overwhelming concern then you could buy a nice cream puff, putter round in good weather for a few years, and when the whim strikes, leave... Only problem could be the dockside doomsayers who are never going to go anywhere.
So, what are your plans, your dreams, your needs, your wants.
