Unless you have a particular reason for buying in USA, try the Far East. I am currently in Yacht Haven Marina, Phuket and there are several yachts up for sail at much lower prices than Europe. I bought my steel Bruce Roberts 53 in Sebana Cove, Malaysia at a fair price, but could have done better in Langkawi or Phuket

I too bought a Steel Yacht in Malaysia.... However, in Jimmy Cornhill's World Cruising Routes, I'm sure I've read that many a US West Coast sailor ends up in Oz after doing the South Pacific run, and can not stomach the beat back home, and sells up there.

If that is true - you will get a US built Yacht, the owner is desperate to sell very close to where you live....

Good luck
