If you truly believe that buying a cruising yacht is for you, and you want a "budget" one I'd be looking at the "36' Offshore
yacht" - Listing #: 314021643
and the "1979 Sayers 36" - Listing #: 313546559.
However the steelie would need a surveyor
experienced in steel
, and the ferro
one with ferro experience. Best to find them and have a chat before taking things too much further.
You'll also need to make a very realistic assessment of how much it would cost to make these seaworthy
enough to leave NZ before parting with any of your hard earned.
