We might have found our boat -- "the one" for us -- a 1984 Brewer 42' cutter (photo above).
We will have it surveyed on Wednesday -- Halloween!
Click here to see all of the cool photos online! We like this one better than the last yacht we looked at: more equipment, more homey. The last was a tough, well-built boat, a CSY 44', but this one is better equipped, so it's a better value. Value is our yacht broker's favorite word: Dave McCall of Maritime Yacht Sales (no promotional consideration was accepted for this mention).
It has room for Mom and Dad in the aft cabin, and our son will have the V-berth in the bow (front). He'll have room for Legos, books, etc. -- and of course even room for a friend to visit. We hope to get together by sea(!) with friends from Cleveland in late November.
Let us know what you think of this post (article).
