Re: Union 36 or Nor'Sea 27


You might want to look at our web site and/or our YouTube pages. We moved aboard our Nor'Sea in 1996, retired in 04 and sailed out under the Golden Gate Bride, turned left and .......

By the way, I now also have a Virtual Reality Youtube page that allows you to look in all directions when on our boat.

Our boat is our bedroom, the world has become our living room.

Yup, it's definitely an experience Laika! I loved the dismal swamp, but could only bear motoring for about four hours a day and then stopped and enjoyed it

Yessir, if it's only about making way it quickly turns into a wrist slashing situation.

But nevermind. Sorry OP

Re: Union 36 or Nor'Sea 27


IMHO, a 36+ boat will offer more room if you do decide to liveaboard for extended cruise.

Check out

Creala 36 for sale, 11.89m (39'0"), 1983 | Boatshed Phuket

When I was looking for boats in 2012, this boat was listed for more than USD 100k.

Good luck in your search.

Give the cost of maintenance a good hard think.
The 36 will be at least 3 or 4 times more.

Re: Union 36 or Nor'Sea 27

If your looking for 1. loads of room for storage and living aboard. 2. Bullet proof blue water cruiser w/ oversized rigging, and 3. Not looking for a lightweight racer. the Westsail 28 or 32 is a good choice. I researched for 10 years before buying my first " ballasted " sailboat. I have no regrets buying Eleuthera a Westsail 32. Check out the Westsail Owners Association website. Also interesting is the story of Satori, a Westsail 32 that survived " The Perfect Storm" and sails today. I have no interest in heading out in a gale, but it is comforting to know my craft is capable of surviving one if conditions turn bad. The rest is up to you, and your training . No it's not fast ! But if i wanted to go "fast" I'd buy a boat with two big screaming turbo diesels. And if your willing to invest some "sweat equity", like me, they are very reasonably priced !!!!!! John
