Re: Purchased My Dream!!

Classy looking boat and the interior looks mint as well. Interesting dinette layout, looks like a very social boat.

The salon looks like a great place for a game of Mau (It's a card drinking game).

Re: Purchased My Dream!!

We have some good friends from Canada that sold their CL 41 last year for about twice what yours was listed at so I think you got a great deal.

They were liveaboards like us and as others have commented, the interior layout is awesome. If I remember correctly, I think they converted that little v-berth into a larger anchor locker and storage area since its not much of a berth except for maybe a child.

You will really enjoy it.

Re: Purchased My Dream!!

Thanks everyone! I was looking at center cockpits and happened upon her on Yachtworld. She was close to home so why not take a look.

I knew right away she has a pristine and uncluttered interior.
I am a lucky guy and will take great care of her.

Thanks again everyone is so kind in this forum.

Yes he did and I admire that, I hope to follow in his footsteps sooner rather than later, looks a lot of boat for the money, makes me wonder what on earth one or two members are thinking when Ive been told that for around $100,000 I cant get much boat?? It certainly seems to be a buyers market right now!
