Cruising. What Type of Cruising Boat Should I Buy?

From : March 2017


There’s a lovely quote by Sterling Hayden in his book ‘Wanderer’ that puts a great deal of perspective into this business that we call sailing!




“To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise, you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen who play with their boats at sea... “cruising” it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.”
