They are both good boats for coastal cruising, but you would want one with a good motor
and a new rig to cross Bass Strait.
So you are probably looking at $10K minimum in work on a normal used boat
before it would do the crossing.
It would probably be better to wait for a good boat in Tassie for that size.
I just took our 30 footer from Sydney
to Hobart with the bride as crew, but it was an order of magnitude more seaworthy
than the boats you nominate, had a new motor
, rig, two autopilots (both were broken by the time we reached Hobart), new GPS
, wireless internet
and an SSB
We also had previous experience in a Bass Strait crossing and over forty years sailing experience.
If you want a boat ready to make the crossing it would cost a lot more than the amount you want to spend.
