I see you have one post so far. Welcome to the forum!
One post also means you wondered in half lost
as you search the Internet
looking for boats and wondered back out again. The odds of you coming back here again to read any of this would be like winning the lottery, twice with the same numbers. Lol
By chance you do come back,
What is your budget
How much time a year do you plan on using the boat?
Do you want to be able to trailer the boat yourself without permits and such?
, three weeks a year and trailer sailor would lean you towards a Clipper Marine
32 Aft Cabin Ketch
or a Halsted 31. These were made around 1976 and clean ones ready to sail are around ten grand , if you can find one.
I own two CM32's one being an Aft Cabin I am just now blowing the cob webs out of after being on the trailer three years.
They are great looking boats that have a 3.8' draft
, 8' beam, and 6' head
room in the main cabin. Aft cabin adults can sit up straight on the two births. Plenty of room in the aft cabin for a separate port a potty.
Main cabin has a v birth, dining area that sleeps two, large fold away kitchen table, head
(option on the shower) and full galley
and is easy to put all controlls to cockpit
They came usually with a yanmar diesel engine
but a sail drive gas engine
models were also available.
My wife will sell you mine after I am long dead, and not before. I paid four grand for mine with great condition three axle trailer you can pull with any truck.
My web site for the boat is www,clippermarine.org.
