So, price no object, you'd still pick a design as old as a Piver and one as "simplistic" as a Wharram ?

Sure why not!!

I am not into the bells and whistles routine. I am a true Navy man.

And I am not into spending a whole city's budget for a boat either. So prices is some what of me being tight budgeted.
Arrghhhh!!! :cubalibre

Thumbs up The Admiral is the perfect cat for me!

I spent a year looking them all over and the Admiral won. Not many people even know about them since they only make about 12 a year but what a great boat she is. Anyone interested is welcome to check my website, web.mac.com/famouspotatoes2. There are pictures and on my blog I recently posted an article "Would I Buy Another Admiral 38?" You can guess my answer to that question. A resounding, "Yes", I love this boat. We are on a two year circumnavigation of the Caribbean, currently in Grenada.

honestly, were it me, I would choose, as many have written, a gunboat 62. The ability to sail it with all of the controls centrally located so a person could single hand it and have the fastest semi-production boat in the world. It's got the advantages of the Atlantic 42, but you still have a nice cockpit. And for protection it has kevlar bottoms and sides, so probably as much impact protection as anything afloat. That would be my 2 million dollar dream boat.

But money was no object !!!!!!!!!

For me, if money was no object, it would still be a custom build and design.

Yeah.

If I had a $200,000.00 dollar budget. I would be looking at new boats. But I am not. So a very, very used boat. Or project boats. Or building from scratch are my options.

Unless I win the lottery.

If I had a $400,000 budget, I would still be looking at used boats.
