Floridian Yacht Sales (Coral Gables, FL)
The above link is to a boat I am quite curious about. I have read all threads about steel
so I understand the advantages and disadvantages of steel
construction. I have also read all threads about twin keels, although there is not too much out there. I just thought I would post this here to see if anyone had some input on this particular boat.
It would be used to move my family
aboard here on St. Croix and for the first few years local sailing in the VI and some down island hopping too. Eventually we would be doing more extended cruising
. I don't like the idea of having to pay for insurance
so a steel yacht would give me piece of mind during hurricane
Things I like about this boat:
Built by professional engineer
Steel with proper coating inside and out
Nice V-berth for my son and aft cabin
for me and the admiral
Things I am a little turned off by:
Twin keels (although they do seem to have some advantages)
(I like sloops or aft cockpits)
(I prefer tiller)
Any input is greatly appreciated. I understand by posting
this it increases interest in the boat and someone could buy it before I have a chance to see it. Oh well, I'll take the chances.
Aloha and Irie Vibes from St. Croix!
