Question Sailing to Australia and Looking to Sell ?

Hi fellow cruisers
We have outgrown our Catalina 320 and are looking to purchase a good fibreglass sea boat in the 37 to 42 foot range. If anyone is heading toward the Eastern seaboard of Australia and may be interesting in selling your sailing vessel on arrival, we may be interested. For Australian import regulations it is essential that the full ownership history of the boat is documented. Ideally less than 20 years old - 1 or 2 cabins preferable.
Thankyou.

Wow, hope you find your boat. There are some great deals here in the US, maybe come over and sail one back :-).

Re: Sailing to Australia and Looking to Sell ?

Hi Paul,

we are in no hurry. I guess its prudent to sell the existing vessel, rather than spread the love over multiple boats!
If it takes 12 + months for the 'right boat', then so be it!

Hope your trip is going well.

Enjoy
