Re: Hello - AUS

G'Day Caroline and family,

Good to have you as new members of CF. I endorse your general plan, but add my vote to not being too adamant about a specific marque of vessel. There are lots of fairly similar boats out there in the marketplace, and for someone just starting out in the cruising/liveaboard world the differences are kinda academic. Once you have a few years experience a more exacting choice becomes supportable.

At any rate, Ann and I wish you the joy of a new boat and a new life.

I have fallen in love with the Bavaria 36, but think the budget will only stretch to a 32.

I am hoping to gather information on purchasing closer to place of manufacture (Germany) in the hope of saving on freight and delivery.
Can anyone advise on taxes etc ??

I am selling my home and intend to live permanently on future vessel, taking our time to return to Australia.

Would love to hear from other families etc doing same.

Hi check out TUI MARINE on the net theres tons of cruisers (ex charter) availible cheap needing some new love (like all of us bahaaa)
