Hi, I am Olli from Germany
and new to this site. I am in the market for a new boat
and narrowed my search down to three or 4 boats.
I would love to get some input from people who know them, own them or have sailed them.
To myself: I started sailing at a young age. Firstly on dinghies, then on 420 and 470. Later on on Hobies. My first experiences on bigger boats I had in the Mediterranean
when I was around 15/16 years old.
My cruising licenses I did on a Hunter
40 and a Bavaria
I am not a blue water
cruiser but it is my intention to outfit a boat
accordingly within the next 2 years and leave Germany
. I am searching for a good liveaboard
with blue water
potential. Preferably sloop
rigged. Suitable for a crew of maximum 4 with the possibility to accommodate guests sometimes. After month and month of shopping
around. I came to like following boats.
1. 1991 Jeanneau
2. 1971 Le Comte Fastnet 45 ( really drawn to this boat
3. 1980 Gulfstar
50' ( little worried about the ketch
rig, never sailed it)
4. 1976 Plaver Sciarelli 49'( ketch
rig as well )
As said, I would appreciate any input I can get regarding these boats.
Thank You so much in advance..
