My wife and I are in the market for a liveaboard
sailboat that will see mostly coastal cruising (east coast of USA) and island hopping the Bahamas
, maybe getting as far as some Caribbean
cruising and a jump over to Bermuda
. We've been sorting through brochures, websites, magazine reviews
, etc for years and have done some tire-kicking on a number of boats. I really like the Caliber 40 but presently we're looking at the Caliber 35 LRC as an alternative, mainly to reduce the long term cost of ownership
(from dock fees
to upkeep). I've scrounged Yachtworld but it seems there are none on the used market. A new one is not out of the question but I'd like a chance to talk with owners or others with first hand experience with these boats before taking that kind of plunge.
If you have, or have hands-on experience with, the Caliber 35 and are willing to suffer through a few newbie questions please drop me a PM.
