Step one, ready to buy as soon as I find what I want:

What I want is an ocean going multihull in the 35 foot range. As an experienced skipper of a Corsair F28, I have an idea of what to expect. Weighing the pros and cons of a tri versus a cat are on my agenda as is comfort versus speed. Typically, I favor speed over comfort but because my next boat needs to take me around the world via the Panama Canal and more temperate climates, being seaworthy and user friendly for single handing are the priorities. Cost, well under !150,000 would fit my budget.

I am willing to sell the F28 or trade up (although it will be hard for me to part with it – I had two terrific voyages on ‘er). Steve Marsh at the Finish Line in Stuart, Florida was kind enough to take me for a ride on a Seawind 1000. The wind was virtually non-existent but it was nice to know how smooth she sailed, especially tacking and gybing in 5 knots or less. Of course, I will want a ride on any prospective purchase on a blustery day in the ocean before laying down my lifetime savings.

It is expected that I will make my purchase within one year from today which will give me one more year for some shake down cruises, upgrades, and refits before setting sail. Send me any leads and suggestions.

I know quite a few 1000 owners. They all love their boats but I hear a few would prefer the 1250 with inboards for extended sailing and bigger seas.
