Synopsis

Expert advice on how to find (and purchase and outfit) that safe, affordable, and responsive sailboat to take readers around the world, or around the bay

This one-of-a-kind list of boats is based on an exhaustive survey of industry professionals, and the boats are readily available for purchase in most regions.







Unique, well researched and well-founded list of capable boats

Includes first-person accounts from owners

Table of data for each boat, including important capsize number (an indicator of stability)
