Hi everyone
I am a life long sailor who has decided a small boat is a small worry ,about to retire early,and hopefully will find a boat shortly.I live in France but still come to England to visit and enjoy sailing.I hope to meet like minded members when i have found my dream boat. :D

Welcome to the CVRDA. Any ideas what your dream boat is? There are probebly as many different dream boats on this site as there are people. The lucky ones own one!

I gather elderly merlins have been popular in France so there may be some available there.

When you come to the UK look up the Merlins site - plenty for sale on the Merlins for sale section. Ask here for advice on design. Look around, buy if you like the look of it and tow it home!!

Sadly the Merlin site is pretty useless as I've found out recently. All the older Merlin ads are several years old and email enquiries go unanswered.

Thanks for that Peter - I will contact Chris Martin and I am sure that he will attempt a tidy up if I point it out to him.
