If you are ready to go cruising, check out this well founded Steel cruising sloop designed by Alan Payne.
"Sheherazade" had a complete refit in 2002 and she is still as good today. These designs are well proven bluewater cruising boats but are just as happy sailing the bays or Lakes. She has a Volvo 40 Hp with just 400 hours, good electronics and a fantastic functional fitout below.
Just slipped 10/2020, she is ready to go right now and look at the price.
