Going Sailing . . . Again !

Hello everyone!
This is a great site and would like to thank whoever got it going!
My wife and I circumnavigated on the 46 foot Cross Trimaran "Bacchante", 20 some years ago and loved it! Had to go back to work and make a living....are now retired and are looking to buy a cat to hit some of the places we missed on our first trip around! If anyone has any information about a 45 - 50 foot used cat for sale, and any updated info on the Panama Canal costs, etc., we'd sure appreciate it! Looking forward to being part of the cruisers forum family!

Aloha and welcome aboard!
I had the pleasure of joining a friend on his Cross 38 from Hanalei to Oahu once. I enjoyed the sail.
kind regards,

Hi and welcome aboard! There are, of course, tons of used cats listed in that size range, but knowing your preferred location for purchase (as well as your estimated boat budget and performance versus accomodation preferences) would help others in identifying potential boats for you.

Cheers!

Brad

Thanks all
The info. on the Panama Canal was great.
We are looking at some cats in the Carib. next week, if we find something we'll head West when the season is right. Being retired, we are more concerned with a well founded, comfortable cat. We figured since we've cruised on a monohull, and a tri, we'd like to try the third option before we're done sailing!

Bob

Good luck on finding your catamaran. You are looking for a large cat. Unless you are independently wealthy and have a large crew, a smaller catamaran might do what you want just fine.

Enjoy your next circumnavigation.

Make no mistake, we're not independently wealthy.....however, we've been told that cats under 42 feet have a tendency of hobby horsing....We're certain that our expectations (and our wallet) will sooner or later come together!

Cheers!
