2. Prout Snowgoose 37
Believe it or not, but a lot of sailors are foregoing traditional sailboats, and opting for catamarans. These boats are the best choice for world sailing, so for those interested…listen up!

It is very hard to find a quality one for less than $100,000. The Prout Snowgoose was launched in England in 1983, an updated version of the Snowgoose 35, one of the most successful cruising catamarans ever.

The great thing about the Corbin 39 is its price! A fully equipped model goes for between $60,000 and $80,000, so it’s much easier on the wallet.
