Dear owners of KP 44/46 or Formosa
My name is Tom. I am a Swiss sailor, 57 years old and a big fan of KP 44/46 or Formosa
46 sail yachts.
Since the age of 17 sailing is my big passion.
I did a few ocean crossings in my life, always with small boats. 2007 I had the chance to sail a Formosa 46 from Fiji
to New Zealand
It was a great trip! In springtime 2017, together with my wife Anisia, I left Southern France
on a beautiful classic
32 foot steel
sailboat. Since 2019 we are in French Polynesia
After almost 5 years of traveling with this small boat
we dream of a bigger one because we would love to share our life stile and our passion with family
and friends. In the same time it would be nice to have a bit more comfort. We are sailing without roller furling
, without fridge and the headroom
is to small for me.
After studiing the market my wife and me are sure that there is only one boat
out there that is corresponding to our criterias: it's the KP 44/46 or a Formosa 46. This kind of boat
is what we are dreaming of. We will sell our little sloop
beginning of next year here in French Polynesia
. Until autumn 22 we will go back to Switzerland a work
hard to get the money
for our future dream yacht.
We hope to find a KP 44/46 or a Formosa 46 between 60 and 70 thousand USD. We can imagine that with a similar selling price
there is some work
We heard about a few typical KP/Formosa problems like: chainplates, rigging parts
We would like to know more about the possible cost for these kind of refits and for the annual maintenance
And if ever you think of selling your boat end of 2022 please let us know, you could help us to make our dream come true.
By the way our plan is to go on sailing around the globe with this future boat and it will be the floating home for my retirement
We are looking forward to get your feedback!
Kind regards from Tahaa in French Polynesia,
Tom and Anisia
