I am looking to purchase
a boat in the 40 to 50k range. I was looking at a 38' Island Trader
for 40k, but after reading a lot of bad opinions about them I am looking elsewhere.
Do you have any suggestions on sailboat manufacturers/models I should look into in this price
range? Two of us would like to sail from Cali to Hawaii
and back and be able to live aboard while in a marina. What we are looking for in a boat is good seaworthiness, fair comfort, and affordable maintainability. A very fast boat is not necessary but one that can sail in light and heavy winds would be preferable.
Thanks for your help.
