Motor to sail...
 
Hi all, hoping for advice..
Been on the Thames with occasional jaunts across the Channel to France and Belgium on our Twin Engine Pedro 36 (Dutch Steel Cruiser) for the last 6 years.
Moving over to retire at our house in Crete, Greece in 12 to 18 months and we are looking to have a Sailboat for Island hopping in our retirement.
Who knows we may even do something more adventurous if we and the boat are up to it.
We are looking at older 40’ ish yachts and really like the layout of the Hunter Passage 42 and maybe we could afford a late 90’s model.
Seems to be some debate as to whether they’re Blue Water boats, from our research so far people either love them or hate them....
Anyone crossed the Atlantic or done some serious sailing in one?

Would appreciate any advice.

Tom

Welcome aboard Tom! I have no experience with the Hunter Passage, but if you start a new thread with Hunter Passage in the name you may find more responses. Good luck!
