well, first... I must mind my manners and say, "Welcome to the board" and although I'm far from being an expert or a Tartan owner I have an opinion for what it's worth.
In response to your question... I'd say that any vessel out there with a price
tag that high will certainly have a lot of "buyer appeal", but if you can afford that much boat I hope you have enough set aside for the 'cruising kitty'.
I think I speak for many here who will post additional remarks...
We'd all love to see some pictures.
though, it's close to 300K$ but you still think you'll add another 35K$ to her?
Damn, I can't imagine a vessel like that needing much of anything except some groceries and dishes added. LoL
Anyway... I too am headed your direction, as soon as I get rid of all this crap I've accumulated over the past 50 years I don't need. My thoughts are, the deeper keel
... hmm you're right about the anchorages
thing for sure but in the pacific, with a boat that big, you probably won't be trying to take her up on the beach like a catamaran
in the caribbean
If you dive, the plateform is certainly a very welcome addition to any vessel you scope
out. I had to eliminate many potential vessels for that very reason.
How's your seamanship skills? Sounds like you're headed the way of many who want go there too.
