i am looking at purchasing a 1962 phillip rhodes designed swiftsure 33. my plan is to liveaboard...and having lived a total of 5 years in tents,this is going to be luxurious!!
my question is whether or not she is capable of ocean crossings.
(at present i reside in vancouver:future plans include japan and/or libyia)
i am not really planning on extensive cruising--more of an a-to-b affair that would allow me to liveaboard in a variety of locations globally.
she has an electrosan,so there's no holding tank. i am aware a larger yacht would perhaps be more comfortable-i really would like to know if other swiftsures have successfully completed ocean crossings, and if the general consensus here is that (given a competant skipper) a swiftsure 33 is potentially capable of trans-oceanic voyages,and what upgrades she might need in order to make this possible.
thanks ahead of time.
