To do a 5 year circumnavigation
think around 24k per year minimum for just cruising expenses. So that would mean you should subtract 100k from the cruising budget
from any choice.
OK, that settled,
- 200000€ only have 100k for a boat, maybe an old Prout snowgoose, or Whirram, catalac
, old lagoon
TPI. The problem here is you need tankage for a boat, and catamarans really need to be above 38 - 40 ft to have the tankage for longer trips across the atlantic. It may make more sense to get an older monohull
than a cat at this price
range. If you have time instead of money
, then The Arrow 1200
- 400000€ 300k for boat, look towards St Francis 44 (maybe best value for money), older Lagoon
410, older Privilege
42, Prout 45 would be a great choice. 30k per year budget
- 600000€ Ok, now we're really talking. New style Leapord 44 may have most comfort at anchor
for a relatively new boat. Also you could be looking at a PDQ
42, a nice lagoon 44, a nice later model FP, St Francis 50 for very nice comfort and speed with rougher finish. 45k per year budget.
- 800000€ Leapord 48 again great for comfort at anchor
, FP 48 would be wonderful and faster, Catana
would be another step up for speed but less space below. 60k per year budget.

I'm pretty sure that with 200000€ it would be pretty impossible to sail for 5 years but you are the experts, not me
