Blue water capabilities?
Current values and future re-sale?
Thanks in advance!
Many of the endeavours have fuel
&/or water tanks
in the keel
. Water gets down there and sits, corroding the tank. many have had replacements
already and usually some modifications to mitigate the design flaw. I run my boat bone dry so my brand new fuel tank
is sitting 'low and dry'.
performance of my 42cc is OK, especially once the breeze pipes up. Not a great light wind
boat and mediocre pointing ability.
they have cruised all over the Caribbean
but I don't know of trans oceanic passages.
Livaboard qualities? CC boats usually get high marks for that. The cockpit
of most CC boats is small but the aft cabin
is usually very nice.
There is a pretty good collection of data at endeavourowners.com
When I have friends with modern production boats aboard they are impressed with the old style, solid teak
cabinetry, the general feel of a more solid boat and the stiffer ride in choppy seas than they find with lightweight, cheap
new boats. These are their opinions, not mine.
