I'm Erik, 52 years old and looking to get my feet wet again. We owned a 50ft monohull but our planned circumnavigation was never completed. Now we plan to try again after the sale of our house. The boat this time will be a cat(ana) in the 47- 52 ft range. Plans are still very vague but the basic decision to go is made.
Welcome Erik! Lots of quality and value available in the Netherlands, but predominantly in the monohull variety. Where do you intend to purchase?
First we need to sell the house, then it's a matter of finding the right boat. If I cannot find a suitable 1 to 2 year old I will get a new one. So where I don't know right now, certainly not in Brazil.
