They say the happiest day of a boater's life is the day he buys his boat and they day he sells it.
If that is true we got two happy days within two weeks. We have purchased a new boat. It is a 37-foot, aft-cabin motor yacht (Silverton 372). With two huge gasoline engines, this boat can go 25 knots (about 27 miles per hour). It is pretty roomy inside and yet has a beam that is nearly half of our previous boat. So, we can go many places we couldn't before, and much faster.
And, within just one week, we also have a contract on the sale of our previous boat (the sailing catamaran). We are very lucky to have gotten nearly what we paid for the boat several years ago and in a very quick time on the market.
I am only posting one picture now but I'll add more pictures and a tour soon!
