My wife and I are planning on taking our two kids
on a 5 to 10 year sailing adventure. We want to wait untill our youngest is old enough to safely navigate around a sailboat without us waking up in the middle of the night and running to their bunks to check on them.
We have never owned our own boat, so we are pretty ignorant to the construction of boats. We want a blue water
capable boat since we will be crossing both the Atlantic and Pacific. We also don't want to spend a fortune on some giant rig that takes up the biggest slips. But considering we have a boy and girl, we need a 3 cabin
layout so they can have a space to call their own. This epic vacation
will be for educational adventure as well, we'll be home schooling them and trying to locate educational things to do at different locations. Learning
from doing is better and more fun than looking at a text book.
My questions (finally);
1-Is there a specific hull
design needed to be blue water
2-If we found a good size 2 cabin
boat, or any boat for this question, can the interior
be changed? i.e. Move cabins around, add cabins, or just completely remove interior
and have a contractor rebuild
it to our specifications?
Thanks for enduring this lengthy post and any advice and or personal experiences shared.
