I would keep the 1972 run about! I would sell the Eagle before the run about! We are thinking about buying a land yatch and pull the run about.

It has been awhile since I have been on this forum and finding this question was perfect timing for us. We are between boats as we make progress with medical issues which forced us to sell our last boat - Nordhavn 40. Now that we are back in the game finding the right boat is the big question. We went back to PAE and signed an LOI for a custom N40 (yes we are addicted to these boats) then had to cancel for a number of reason's including the missing excitement we experienced with the previous two builds. Fast forward a couple of months and an offer on used N47 was not accepted (probably a good thing since we were not ready for all the work that we assumed would come with a 10 year boat). So we are back looking for that perfect boat which we can live aboard part time. My real desire is to find something in the 40' range, large beam and simpler systems (no wing engine, no generator but go for heat & A/C). It is hard to find a high quality, simple boat, in this size at a fair price. I have researched just about every builder out there and struggling. If it was not for living aboard the decision would be much simpler - a 26' Wasque for day trips! Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Buy the Wasque and rent a condo? When you tire of that cruising ground move the boat and rent another condo.

The boat you seem to desire will need to be built to order anyway, so if that's the route hire an independent NA and tell him to make it happen.

I guess this is how "life" tends to change our direction as we live it....
We sold our 40' sailboat several years ago and bought a 40' motorcoach when a family crisis made us want to travel by land for a while. Enjoyed that, now we are looking for a trawler to get back on the water...The circle continues!
