Hello! I have registered myself here because I need some feedback.
Currently looking for a 32-38 ft bluewater sailboat to make my home, I am doing some research
. I am not from the USA, and thus do not know the local shipyards. So far, my research
drove me to look at serious cruisers (Lord Nelson, Tayana, Island Trader
, Cheoy Lee
, Hans Christian and others) but I have been warned on more than one occasion about the deck
issues related to these cruisers. Having a lot of sea miles, but having only been given new boats, both sail and power, I do not feel fit, nor do I have the will and time, to undertake a refit project
I thus redirected my search towards local blue water
cruisers, such as Southern Cross, Westsail, Union Polaris, Alajuela, Valiant.
I need a fat and safe boat to live in comfort, I am a cruiser at heart who does not like to break boats, and if I need to go fast, I take an airplane.
I will be grateful to anyone who can help me through my search, as I tend to think that boat owners may be of better advice than yacht brokers.
