So, imagine you've had enough of it all and want to bugger off, maybe single handed, and you have a sub 40 grand budget, with the idea of maybe a bit of stooging around the med, then perhaps the Arc and winter in the Caribbean, what would you go for...

On a serious note check out the Lavezzi 40 from FP. In this economy you could pick an old one up for a little over 80k (100k) which is 40k in prorata terms of 'wife budget' in dinghy land.   Just scale up... And hide the receipt.

There a thousands of answers to that question but here are a few:

Hanse 292, 300 or 301.

All based on the Aphrodite hull shape which goes very well. 34000 would pic up a nice example.

Small and simple enough to sail singlehanded but will sleep 6.

Could also look at Halmatic 30, Moody 31, Albin Ballad, GK29

So something around 30', is that long enough to comfortably deal with anything that gets chucked at it, Atlantic wise?

So try the question differently what would you buy and why?
