Yeah we looked at many boats with no real experience, other than the research
on different designs and principals.
I really wanted somthing of good blue water
status but after going through many vessels what we ended up going with was more of a cruiser type design.
Reason for this was i could afford something abit newer, ( being i currently dont have a huge amountof knowledge on fixing systems and something newer “feels” more manageable. See how that goes..) and the amount of time we would spend hopping around different locations as apposed to big crossings, a lighter more maneuverable boat out weighed offshore
proformance and those type of layouts.
was fairly simple step by step, watch the rates. If your spending a decent amount it dosnt take much to throw out your budget
if the rate slides..
We brought through williams and smithells, english mob
so it was straight down the line.
All that being said, im 26, and have zero sailing exp. the first sail boat i stepped on was the the one we ended up buying
. After looking at about 20 others..
So i 100% winged our boat buying
situation. Gota start somewere haha and everthing has been fine so far.
