I found this forum whilst looking for a cruising yacht to buy, and was glad to see so many kindred spirits.
Been ashore for the past nine years after 13yrs cruising, first in Sydney
and now Gold Coast Hinterland, but the time to go back to sea is close (thank god!). Things have certainly changed in the cruising world during the past decade, even more so than when I set off over twenty years ago with a plastic sextant
, a ten dollar digital watch and great expectations.
From what we have discovered so far, Aus is one of the more expensive places to buy at the moment. We would be really interested to hear others experiences/advice on buying
in places such as the Caribbean
& Central America
. I seem to remember that the Caribbean
was good value if you had the cash.
