and in the “Still a boat I’d choose” department…

There was a time in my life when the idea of sailing across an ocean and living aboard full time had me looking at a used Philippe Harlé designed Jeanneau Fantasia and thinking it was just about the perfect boat to do it in.

It checked off all our needs as it sailed well, had a comfortable interior, a surprising amount of room for such a small envelope, and it was, more or less, affordable.

Now, forty years later, I still find the Fantasia a great boat and more than able for a couple to cruise and live on.

Better yet, a used one in good shape is even more affordable than it was back in 1982.
