to the Bahamas/Caribbean. I don't envision going any farther than that.
I really like the Ocean series, in fact I almost bought one. The only thing that I was sceptical about was the way center cocpits evacuate water
from the cockpit
, through pipes/hoses in the engine
room. Seems common knowledge that they are built well. The ones I looke at which had teak deck
were all of them in bad shape and would need attention/replacement. You can find them withough teak
decks though. There is a guy here in Norway
, who has sailed one from Norway
to the Carribean
and back 38 foot.
Hope this info is helpfull.
