We are on the hunt for a new boat!
Our current boat
is a supersonic 27 cruiser/racer. She has looked after us well, however with a new family
, and a desire to do a cruise
up the coast next year and beyond it is time fair dinkum cruiser.
We are after something that would accommodate my wife and I and a small child, something that will get us up to FNQ next year safely and comfortably, and that might have the capability of doing more than that in the years to come as our experience and cruising ambitions grow.
We both have come to cruising from racing
backgrounds and appreciate boats that have some performance and that can sail.......having said that safety
and sea-kindliness are our priorities, coupled with a storage/tankage to actually really cruise
We are in our early 30s and on a budget
. We want to keep the purchase
We have looked at the following designs Arends 33, Jarkan 10.5, Southcoast 36, Martzcraft 35.
Thoughts on these and any other suggestions very welcomed.
