Here we go. It’s officially summertime. In the past May has always been one of our busiest months and this year was no different. I’m still seeing a buying trend with the 35-45′ sailboats. I think a lot of folks have had it with the absurdly overpriced real estate in the Charleston area. And it’s nice if you can sail your home to the Caribbean for a week or two whenever you want. I’m hoping to see this trend continue.
On a personal note, I had a chance to spend a few days on Daufuskie Island with the family this month. We took the boat down from Bohicket and through the ACE Basin on the ICW. I forgot how nice it was to actually sit back and enjoy a boat ride. No backdown maneuvers, no thermal imaging, just cruising. The ACE Basin is still one of my favorite places on earth.
