Far be it from me to appear biased, but I really do think everyone should be looking at a canoe stern, double ender cutter for their next vessel purchase.

I'm thinking probably something around the 33' length with a bit of character but the longevity and low maintenance of fibre glass.

Having a bucket load of ultra modern, new gear and a new set of sails is probably also going to be an important requirement. A professional 2 pack respray for the hull and deck might also be something to look for.

Gee - well if that's really how everyone is thinking - have I the yacht for you!!!

Written all very much with tongue firmly planted in cheek and no ulterior motives whatsoever!

Seriously though - good look in your search. Look at lots, ask lots and when you have finished - ask and look lots further - before you know it - a yacht will catch your eye and you'll know.

Fair winds,

I know a man in Australia who has a 40ft-ish timber sailboat named "Peace Train". He named it from the song, and in particular the line...Peace Train gets me home again. That's a good thing to be thinking about when you're buying an offshore sailboat.

Further to that, my son was nine or ten when we first encountered Peace Train. He later confided he thought that was a weird name for a boat - Pea Strain. He had never heard the song of course.
