I am new to this community. I am in the process of looking for and purchasing my first sailboat. I grew up on the IL river boating on a powerboat and now am at a point in my life that I can afford to get back into boating and am excited about sailing. I own a coffee shop in the western suburbs of Chicago. Our philosophy of slowing down and enjoying life is definitely something sailing is about.
My partner and I buy, refurbish and resell older model sailboats. Most come from those that had a sailing dream and abandoned it due to age or financial reasons. They range in price from around $5000 to $25000 and age from 1970 to 1985. My partner is based out of Marblehead (just above Sandusky), Ohio. If this interests you, feel free to contact me about them. If not, I will not bother you. Bruce
