Ideally, I would like to get a 2006 or later Oceanis or a Sun Odyssey. I would prefer a boat that's had a single owner from new. I know there is a huge difference between these boats and a 1979 moody however, I intend to go on a few 2/3 week live-aboard courses on one or both of these models in the next 6 months.

Do a similar +/-spreadsheet for the 411's on Yachtworld and make a fair offer, which will be ridiculously low in the eye of the buyer, then let the negotiations begin

Yes, I actually made an offer which was refused. After which I took on a new project for work which will see me have no time off until Q2 next year so maybe its for the best. No point in having her in a marina and not being able to sail her for 9 months
will keep looking though,
cheers,

JJT
