When I recently purchased a cruising sailboat in Florida, I started my search with yachtworld.com Doing so treated me well.

Once you identify a few models you are really interested in, doing a google search may bring up a few additional models not listed on yachtworld. iboats and boattrader are a couple other sites worth checking out.

The West Coast of Europe is a mighty big place? I'm a British Yachtsman living in landlocked Orlando, Florida, and I agree with Nautical62, you should scour Yachtworld.com by putting your boat parameters in, including Florida. Then e-mail the brokers and get more details of any boats of interest. Florida is also a very long coastline to drive, so you should have an itinerary.

Any time time you say the only things is ... means that is all you get.

Broadening horizons may yield more fruit. This all may come down to how you want to live. Tell us more!

I can't believe the only thing that matters is two heads. So after all that just what do you want to do? Where do you want to go?

These guys have a lot of listings in S Florida. Also try Craigslist. It is a buyer's market for sure, right now, so don't be bashful about about lowballing the offer.

Welcome aboard and good luck in your search. Lots of boats have two heads but I've never seen the 2nd one used except for stowing weather gear">foul weather gear or as a stowage locker.
Kind regards,
JohnL

Looking for a Boat

Okay so we do need more than 2 heads but SWMBO wants 2 heads so thats it. We are going to do the Great Loop then the Caribbean, so mast hieght and draft 60' and 5'6". Length 40ft max. Dont want to have to buy much so solar, wind and possible geni would be good. Tender with motor and autohelm, davits. Basicly I'm looking for someone who's put 1000's into his boat and now cant set sail. Tall order but these boats are out there.
