36 Bavaria 2006 don't laugh

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 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 or solar 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.

If it was in the charter fleet, it likely has been rode hard and put away wet. Charters are often in horrible condition.
