We learned a LOT about the boat buying process while looking for Atticus II, our 1997 Pacific Seacraft 40. We grappled with SO MANY questions while trying to narrow down our search...

  • How important is a Bluewater hull design?
  • What size range should we be considering for our needs?

Then, once we put an offer on a sailboat, we faced a whole new slew of questions...

  • What are the hidden costs of buying a sailboat?
  • What should we look for on our sea trial and survey?

And finally, after we closed on Atticus II, we faced the reality of our decision... Did we choose the right boat? 

In this seminar, we'll go over our journey of purchasing Atticus II, what we've learned SINCE buying Atticus II, and what we wish we knew before we started our boat search. If you enjoyed our Boat Buying Series on YouTube, this seminar is for you! If you haven't seen it yet, check it out here, or check out the video below.

This seminar will consist of a 1-hour presentation by Jordan and Desiree with guest speaker Bernie Jakits of David Walters Yachts followed by a 1 hour Q&A interactive discussion with our audience.

Arriving by Car: Port Annapolis Marina is an easy 10-minute drive from the United States Sailboat Show and downtown Annapolis. There are easy Uber dropoff points and more than ample parking at the David Walters Yachts office and throughout the marina.

Arriving by Water Taxi: Water taxis operated by Watermark Water Taxi will be departing every half hour from City Dock at the United States Sailboat Show. Just let the Captain know that you'll be heading to Port Annapolis Marina. The 1-Way far is $6.50. Drop off and pick up at Port Annapolis Marina will be on C-Dock.
