Still here. :)
Well as some will remember in looking to liveaboard, and travel.
Before you have asked my Budget, well. its up to 30k but ideally 25k for Boat.
Since im solo. i was thinking 30foot.
The plan, is to buy, move abord, and try to keep working down south (london or midlands area) doing whatever, and continuing to build travel fund.
Hi there, a friend of mine has an excalibur 36 for sale (he has taken the advert off the web for some reason, still for sale though). Asking £24,000 has hydrovane and davey hardwood stove. He's been living on it for years and sailed it to med and back a couple of times single handed.
It is currently in south devon.
Here is pictures of another one in Scotland in similar condition.

There is a huge variety of boats available that meet that spec - at least in terms of size and price, but they will be old and of varying suitability for living on board. Most will be aft cockpit, but there are a number of centre cockpit models like the Countess that are arguably better for liveaboard because of the separate aft cabin.
However there is never the perfect boat and you will have to accept some compromises, so just look at as many boats as you can and make your own assessment of which you think will suit you. You may find buying a cheaper simpler boat first is a good idea to find out if you really like it. Few people get the right boat first time and there is nothing worse than sinking everything into a boat and discovering it is not right for you.
Superb go anywhere yachts,I raced one in the early 70's.Very seldom see them on the market.
Anyone know how many were built?
