Buy your own sailing boat

 

You are thinking about buying your own sailing boat?

We sailed on charter boats for a long time and we have tried a lot within the available types at the charter companies.

The hull

So first we had to decide between a fiberglass and aluminum hull. We experienced the Bavaria, Jeanneau Sun Odyssey an Beneteau oceanis with fiberglass hull on one side and the Alubat Ovni and Garcia Exploration with aluminum hull on the other side. All these boats are great to sail but regarding out project we decided to go for an aluminum boat for these reasons:

  • Aluminum hull is easier to repair or modify than the Fiberglass with cutting the unwanted parts and welding new parts on it
  • It sails much smoother in strong see, which makes it for me more comfortable

the lengths

Matthias is 1,86m high and needs to stand comfortably in the main areas in the boat. I want a nice front cabin and a lot of space for storage.  From our experience a sailing boat with 40-45 feet would be a good fit.

the price limit ist 200T Euro. The best would be to find a boat in a robust conditions but with few equipment and in need of renovations.

lets search for it!
