Hello All. I've been reading posts on this forum for several months learning
a great deal of the minutiae of cruising, which I thank you for. I am planning on quitting work in the near future and my next adventure in life will be to circumnavigate along the trade
routes, starting in the Caribbean
. I love many aspects of the catamarans and my mind is set on getting a used one, possibly out of charter
. I am trying to set reasonable expectations of what it will cost me to do this and am hoping I can buy a used 40 ft catamaran
and set it up for long passages for $250k....but I would like to sell it when I'm done a few years later without losing more that $50k.
I plan on keeping the boat up to a good standard...ready for more long passages.
Is this reasonable, or do I need a reality check?!
