Re: Boat wanted for larger family

Have you checked Moorings brokerage? They list several Beneteau Cyclades 43's for under $100K US. I know ex-charters aren't for everyone, but they do seem to have the cabin layout and swim platform you are looking fro.

Take a look at the down eastern boats. Moved aboard with three kids on a 38 footer. Very roomy, but may not have the cabins you are looking for.

Re: Boat wanted for larger family

Hi! Not sure if you are interested in buying in the United States - but I am a member of a few FB groups and after reading your posts saw this and thought of you. I am in no way representing this seller or the Facebook group (I don't know anything about them at all other than what I read on the post). Anyway - just thought I would pass his along. 😃.

The Facebook group is called:

Sailboats For Sale

and is a public group. The last 2 posts seem to be what your searching for! Good luck!

Re: Boat wanted for larger family

Hi there!

We currently live aboard this vessel with two children (12 and 9) and a 35# pooch (Nugget). We are considering selling our boat due to slip rent costs and pending braces for kiddos...

Benford Design Group (bottom right)

She is a beauty, but needs a good paint job. My husband is a boatbuilder by trade, but has had some medical issues which has prohibited upkeep.

Good luck on your search!
