Whats your budget
? A 20 or 30 year old 30 footer in need of a total rebuild
will probably set you back in the region of 45 - 50,000. Nice boats at least double. Did a fair bit of looking around a few years back and slowly moved up sizes and ended up building a cat. Not a lot of choices for a pen, long waiting lists for all and bloody expensive. If you want to stay in the Swan river on a mooring
you need a mast
that drops as we have the pleasure of a bridge at the entrance that is only 7.4 meters. Can moor or anchor
30 or 60 minutes, by car, south however for more realistic prices.
Im just inland from Fremantle which is Perths port.
Lots of luck in your endeavour
