I have been researching and looking at yachts for about 10 years now. I kept coming back to the South Coast 36 as a good rugged go anywhere cruising yacht. Lately there hadn’t been any for sale for quite a few months. I had stopped looking at the ads but still had a email alert active. I had read on a blog that the last South Coast 36 sold was only on the market 2 days.

I decided to open the email alert just after Christmas, wow it had just about everything I wanted on the boat and was not a bad price, just one catch – it was 4300km away. Oh well make some phone calls and finally organise to have a look. Fly to Brisbane and have a out of water survey done. Deposit paid. That was the ‘easy’ part. Now the adventure begins….. well let’s wait for the cyclones to stop coming.
