Hello Dear Friends,
before I start my own thread, I thought it would make more sense if I let you all know beforehand: I spent around 7 months reading on this forum and believe me: I read a lot, I absobed a lot of information, and I understood a lot.
Now, all I want to read is what your thoughts are on the mentioned boats in the title - where one has clear advantage over the other.
Boats are: Shannon 47/52 (maybe Shannon Raised Deck
Pilot - same 47/52) and Outremer
55 Light / Standard.
I want YOU to be open-minded and type AWAY your thoughts about those boats. You might ask me: "What I want to do with this boat
?". My answer is simple: sailing and living aboard
, crossing pacific, crossing atlantic, sailing in winter
in high latitudes, living aboard
, crusing the north coast of australia
, crusing the GBR, etc. Crew: 2 people - sometimes 6. Maybe 2 kids
after around 5 years. No plans to resell the boat
- at least not for the next 15 years. Please, I beg you, don't ask me for the reason why I asked the question, the logic behind it, my budget
and whether I prefer mono-/multi - I love both and besides: who cares?. All I want is that YOU type your thoughts on those 2 (3) boats and what YOU would choose - with an OPEN MIND. Thank you very much for your help.
