Hi Everyone. Iíve been lurking long enough in the shadows reading the miriad fascinating topics on this fabulous site. So now itís time to join up.
My name is Andy, Iím 54 and live on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland
. Iíve sailed since I was 10 in small and big boats-all monoís and have things like Sydney-Hobart, Fastnet and 50k nm under by belt predominantly in Northern European waters and a few ocean deliveries as skipper
My plan is to buy as a liveaboard
with my two teenage sons. To me, a cat makes sense in view of liveable space. A mono (unless a smaller centreboarder) canít get over the bar into the river where I will be moored. I hasten to add that the single
most important requisite is that the cat is liveable. Sailing performance and offshore
capability are well down the list.
Iíve inspected a few cats, one being a Voyager 36. It looks a bit like a shed on two hulls but provides good accommodation and has been in charter
meaning it should be tough. If anyoneís interested, hereís the link.
Apologies for rambling on but here are my 2 questions. Does anyone have any knowledge of these yachts and their pedigree and what are your thoughts on the asking price
Thanks in anticipation if any constructive feedback.
