Hello ~ I am looking for my first boat
and believe I would be best with a new (or almost new) boat
since I do not have experience with fixing existing issues or refitting an older boat and would anticipate a new boat
will allow me time learn these things over time.
My sailing experience is limited too, so looking to learn and grow into a new boat
. I plan to start in SF Bay
, but would like to have the capability to sail outside the bridge to destinations along the west coast
, maybe beyond in the future.
Currently looking at the Oceanis
35 and Pacific Seacraft
31. I do understand the price
difference, full keel
differences and handling responses (O35 quicker, more responsive) but perhaps not as seaworthy
I would welcome the feedback from the members on this forum, given the wealth of knowledge and experience you all have.
Thank - you!
