Most of you will be aware that I have written three posts proposing a low cost, strong, fast and comfortable offshore sailboat, that started its internet life as the Model T and has morphed to the Adventure 40.
In the last post I laid out a plan to bring the boat into being.
Stand Up and Be Counted
So, if you would be seriously interested in buying an Adventure 40, ready to sail away for about US$175,000, please fill in the form at the end of this post.
Not Ready to Sign Up?
If you want to learn more about the Adventure 40 concept before signing up, that’s fine too. I have at least four more posts perking on the boat itself and a whole new way in which it will be built and sold, and you will be able to sign up at any time you wish.
We will not use the list for any other purpose or hand it over to any business, other than one seriously committed to building the Adventure 40.
If you want to keep up with future posts on the site, including those on the Adventure 40, sign up for our regular email feed as well as the form below, or instead of it, if you are waiting for more posts before making up your mind.
The goal I’m setting for this project is a minimum of 100 names on the mailing list, and 200 would be a lot better. If we don’t achieve that minimum, well, the Adventure 40 was a fun and interesting process.
This is Not a Veiled Business Plan
Just to be clear, we at Attainable Adventure Cruising have no intention of building this boat ourselves, although we are committed to trying to find, advise and motivate the builder. I got into this because I’m concerned that offshore voyaging is dying because of the lack of a good, safe, fun, affordable boat at a reasonable price.
If you believe that this process is important, please spread the word about the boat and this sign up form. Use Facebook, Twitter, Google + (all available at the bottom of each post under “Share”), forums, email, club web sites, and anything else you can think of.
I’m new to this whole form thing, so if you have any problems entering your information, or have suggestions for improving the form, please leave a comment in the normal post comment area under the form (not in the form comment area, which is reserved for your thoughts about the boat and your interest in it.)
