Hi there fellow sailers,
Im new to this site and would really love your help. Im a huge fan of small boat
, and are now in a position to take the plunge and get a boat
so I can sail. I have narrowed my options down to the following and have based my choices on what is around New Zealand
at a price
i can afford.
Woolacot keeler, Whiting reactor 25, Nolex 22-30, raven 26,Tracker 7.7, vairant 22. Does anybody know anything about these boats, they are priced betwwen $7000 and $25000 and some even look set up for coastel cruising.
What advice would you give to me who has never lived aboard a boat
before. It it just me so I dont need alot of space, and I dont own much so It wont be clutterd. I cant really afford to go bigger than 30ft otherwise I will spend more time trying to pay for it and less time out there sailing it., rent at my local marina is $5 aday includeing all the shore power
etc I want.
I hope to do a sail of the Tasman in the next 12mths and then maybe meet up with other sailers along the way.
If anybody is from New Zealand
(ChristChurch) I would love to talk to you.
