I know the first thing you are thinking is that sailboats are not inexpensive. For what you get they are actually excellent values. In 2011 Sabre Yachts, an extremely well run, boat builder stopped making sailboats, why?? Not because no one wanted to buy them, but rather because they were making little or no money building them.

My first sales position in the yachting business was with Sailboats Northeast. I started in August 1980. I was a commissioned salesman for SBNE selling mostly new boats, some trade-ins, and some used boats. Most of the new boats I sold were in stock in our inventory in Marblehead. They were lined up in a storage area in a lumber yard.

February 2021 almost completes a full year of the Covid pandemic. How much longer this will go on no one knows, but there is light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine.

Single and double handed yacht racing has been around for a long time. The Vendee Globe race is going on right now. You should check out the videos on the web site, amazing. Most shorthand sailboat racing has been long distance but there is some local shorter racing available. The Beringer and Ted Hood Regattas this summer had shorthanded racing classes.

You pick out the boat of your dreams. The broker told you this yacht was meticulously maintained. Visions of sailing the high seas dance in your head. Hopefully someone told you to get this dream surveyed. Really, she is obviously well maintained and the survey will cost me a thousand bucks.
