Best Boat for Beginners


New Member
Hello my name is Jesse Ramthum. My wife and I are looking to get into sailing as a hobby and explore it to see if cruising is something that we want to do full time one day. So the question we have is, what is a good boat to start on. I have sailed very small boats in the past but my wife has never sailed. We appreciate any advice and information you can provide!

A Capri 14.2 would be nice for the two of you. Very stable, sails well and has modern rigging. Impossible to sink and can be righted easily by 2 average size people or one large person.

Take a course first.
Perhaps there's a community sailing center nearby.
Or a course offered by a vacation type center such as the Offshore Sailing School.
