Two mono sailors looking for the right cat for liveaboard
. Would love to know your opinions. It is my first post. Let's see, initially we will spend most of the time at dock
with weekend sailing, then after a couple of years want to strike out to near offshore
type sailing, then who knows? Prefer new or nearly new. Stability more important that speed. Don't really want balsa core
. Want really good construction. Would like nice kitchen for avid cook, not much wave slapping and rocking, helm
with some overhead protection. Want the comforts of home, laundry
aboard, heat/air conditioning, you probably get the picture. Fairly wide range of price
ok, to about $750k max but would much rather spend less.
Looked at Fountaine Pajot
, PDQ Antares
, Lagoons, and have sailed (happily in the beautiful BVI) a Privilege
47 (older model, really liked it), Moorings 440 (liked) and 380 (didn't like). Sailed another 38 footer in the Outer Banks/NC but can't for the life of me remember the model. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!
