I’m considering buying a boat within the next year or so. To be honest I’m still somewhat torn between a motor yacht (Westbay, Offshore) and a trawler (Selene, Nordhavn), but that’s an entirely different thread. For the motor yachts, I have narrowed it down to Westbay and Offshore. I live in Vancouver, BC, and in the past have spent most of my time in the waters between the mainland and Vancouver Island (Gulf islands, Desolation Sound, etc). Most of my trips would be in the 3-7 day range with the occasional 7-14 day trip 2-3 times per year. I prefer to be on the hook (rather than at a dock) during my trips, finding quiet coves and islands to explore. My choices are: - a new (or perhaps 1 or 2 year old) Westbay 63 or Offshore 64 Voyager - an older (2000-2005) Westbay 72 or Offshore 72 pilothouse I’m mainly looking for experience/advice with regards to quality of the build, customer service, ease of use, pros and cons to each of this yachts. I’m also open to suggestions of other manufacturers that you might feel builds an even better boat than these two. Any advice/experience/suggestions from those who know these manufacturers quite well would be very much appreciated. Thanks in advance! Note to admin: Is it okay to post this same thread in the Westbay forums?
