I am looking to make my first sailboat purchase
either next spring or in the fall at the end of the season.
I am looking for some advice on models here in Canada
. I am thinking that I would like to be in the 24-27 ft range in terms of size due to costs, but I would like something I can learn on with my wife, but be able to comfortably spend a weekend or week on the boat
. The plan is to use it to not only still, but be able to get away for the weekend and then do a few week long trips as well. My wife is short at 5' and I am about 5'10, so the headroom
I would like would be about my height. I am thinking that a sink, head
would be needed as well, and I prefer to have the head
not under the v berth. V-birth would be the preferred sleeping area as well.
Any suggestions as to models to look at? So far I am seeing the Grampion 26, the Tanzer 26 or Tanzer 7.5 as possible contenders. Any others you would suggest?
