I'm completely new to sailing, always wanted to just never have. I want to start sailing on lake Windermere but know nothing on buying
and owning a boat
. I want to start with say a 30 footer so I will have the space for family
that's important. I get a 30ftr maybe big to start with? I will be getting lessons and the correct training
before trying anything solo.
Ok so I have a budget
of £30,000 and have been thinking towards a Hanse 301, Beneteau
285 and Ronautica RO 265. I will be spending only a week or two at a time and mostly weekends on it. If anyone could please let me know what I need to do and how to go about buying
one and costs I will be looking at in the area like anti fouling
, winter storage
and so on. Also should I get in a marina or on a swinging mooring
? I don't plan on racing
much at all on it more of just relaxing while sailing along the lake.
So yeah everything I need to know about buying a boat
on the lake would be fantastic and thanks in advance.
