So many variables go into choosing the right boat.
- The right time
- The right budget
- The right person
- The right season
- The right purpose
There are a few boats that I would consider The Perfect Boat (for me).
- 48 ft. Hans Christian (although a nice 3 cabin layout in a 43 ft. would do in a pinch)
- 55 ft. Tayana (one that I saw at the Strictly Sail in San Francisco years ago - with a custom work shop built into a starboard cabin...complete with a vise mounted into the worktable)
- That 53 ft. custom dutch steel double-ender that I still keep searching to find again...the vessel's name was "S/V Atlantis"...and I should have bought it when it was on the market)
