The type of sailboat you buy should reflect the type of sailing that you plan to do, and where you will be spending the majority of your time on the water. Here are some questions you should consider before investing in that new or used sailboat:
How will you spend your time on the sailboat?
The type of boat you want is greatly dependent on how you will spend the majority of time on it. Are you looking to spend a few hours on the lake after work? Take a 3-day vacation to Blake Island on Puget Sound? Or do you want to go on a 3-week excursion up into the San Juan Islands or Gulf Islands?
