more choices boat hunt

recently sold KP44 which was a great boat our next boat will not be purchased for some time. This is what we are looking at 40 -50ft liveaboard sloop or cutter rig preferably centre cockpit ocean crossing vessel. A Hylas was suggested as a very well designed and built boat but they are very pricey so thought there might be some other makes without the name $$$ premium that are also worth a look

If you are not into spending a lot of money take a look at a Waquiez Amphitrite 43. Those older WZ's were very nicely built. and decent sailors... I think about $135 asking..... Same price as 12 years ago!

Just looking for more variety and then the price as it seems unless they are thirty years old the availability of suitable cruising boats decreases dramaticly
