I'm on the search for my first vessel...
I don't know exactly what i'm after... but a sailing live-aboard cruiser for under 50k usd. which i will be sailing around Thailand
until I get my confidence/skills up is the rough goal..
I will be viewing a Bristol 35.5c tomorrow.. been reading some reviews
, sounds like a very nice boat..
curious if anyone could share things to look for, or their opinions of this vessel?
it has solar panels
, wind generator
, new dingy, told it is all ready to go..
30-50k sound about right? I know i'm lacking much key information..
I've read: be careful of the 78' model w/unmodified centerboard
and avoid the 20hp Yanmar
under powered engine
thank you for your time!
