Sitting here in nanny cay studying for the 101 test tomorrow and thinking about a boat I looked at the other day. Bvi yatchs has a Bavaria
36 listing that does not seem too bad for a first boat. Has good sails
and a new yanmar
with 400 hours on it.
Now before the bashing starts....how does it sound for a first boat already down in the bvi's ? I am only looking at having it for a year or two. After I go back to work I will purchase
a boat for a keeper.
The boat looks slightly used in most respects. It was taken in on trade
from a horizon yatchs sale
, they are the owners. Brian said what price
I could pick it up for, which is significantly less than asking. So this has really turned into getting a good deal on a boat that I am not in love with, but good enough to sail a season or two on. As you can guess, no wind
and no autopilot
So pass on the cookie cutter
boat or take a chance. I will more than likely sail it to Grenada
and back to Bvi.
