Hey all, hows it going?
I'm looking for my next boat. My wife and 1/yr old kid live in a tiny cruddy 380 sqr ft house, and are ready to move onto a boat, as I'm a marine diesel mechanic
for a living, it would be a pretty low risk investment and we can say we own where live.
What we are looking for is a sailboat, with two staterooms. We need our own room, and the kid needs hers. No quarter berths or anything like that, we need to be able to close her door at night so the wife.and .I can do whatever.
I don't get see many sailboats, I'm more of a powerboat guy, but love to sail, but that's just the nature.of my job, so while I grew up sailing, 90% of my boat model knowledge is powerboats, so I'm hoping you guys can help.
We are looking for something 30-40 foot with diesel
power, and two staterooms. One head
is fine- less to work on.
We live in Washington
and want to load up and move to Alaska
, so a boat really fits the bill.
We only can spend about 15,000$ but I've seen plenty of decent boats for that price
What models come to mind? We are also considering a center cockpit
, but having to go outside to get to our stateroom seems wet and cold. Ketch
, yawl, rig isn't important, as long as it's junk rigged. I hate junks.....
