Oh, and apparently it even serves as a two car garage when you're on the hard

Re: Is a FP 36ft cat a blue water or not

you don't say where in the world you are, but this is the only FP mahe for sail at the moment in Oz which is less than $300k

https://www.boatsonline.com.au/boats...mahe-36/236469

despite the price, i know it's a good boat

(and i'd have no hesitation blue water cruising on a mahe)

cheers,

The OP didn't say what 300K meant, but since it's generally US people who display that "ethnocentric" attitude on this international forum , I'm guessing he meant USD300,000.


That AUD300,000 is only USD210,000

Re: Is a FP 36ft cat a blue water or not

Just my opinion, but I'd get something a wee bit larger. We have a 2005 Leopard 40, and she is a great bluewater cruising boat.
