I have been searching for a while now for a suitable cruising boat for short/singe handed sailing in SE Asia
. I have not owned a Yacht before and have not sailed for a cpl of decades having sailed on lazers, wayfarers and a moody 33 in my teens and early 20's.
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.
I have found a nearby 2003 Oceanis
which sounds perfect but the price
seems very high at just shy of Euro 130K or $165K.
Its a single
owner boat and is fully loaded with top quality equipment
