So you want a Sailboat?

Buying a sailboat is not simply picking out a boat among sailboats for sale. You should think about not only the type of boat, but also the size of boat and what do you want to use it for. Sailing with the family or do you want so time away from the family?

- Learn a bit more about the different types of sail boats and what will suit your needs. 

Have a look at this website:

 - Where will you be sailing? Around the bay or around the world? Day sailing or cruising? Will this be over a weekend or do you plan longer trips?

- The cost of all this is also really important to consider. Where will you store your boat? Will it be looked after if you are not around? What is the monthly cost involved in the upkeep?

Smaller boats have a relative low maintenance than your bigger boats.

- Do you want a brand new boat or a used boat? The cost with this will also have a huge difference.

- If you are planning a long distance trip, do you have crew that will assist you? How will you pay them?
