Hello everyone, just to introduce ourselves. We are a family
of 3, a son 13 years of age. A wife who was very nervous of sailing ! I have sailed from a very early age mainly in the Irish Sea.
The lasy 3 years we have chartered a boat
and sailed the North and South Ionian
, this has re kindled my bug for sailing and helped my wifes confidence enough to look at taking the plunge and buy ouselves a yacht.
We are looking at purchasing
a yacht between 36 - 41 foot. We don't know the best type although have looked at some second hand Bavarias. What are your views ?
Where would be the best ( cost effective ) place to berth it ?
Does anyone have any experience on buying
a new boat
on a ''Partnership Scheme'' with a charter
company as this is an option that we have considered ?
All your views and advice would be gratefully received as we do not want to go into this totally blind and make unnecessary costly mistakes
