Thanks for the email. The Westsail 32 is certainly capable of fulfilling your plans. There are a number of them in Europe, but may not come up for sale very often, or difficult to find the "for sale" listings. It is possible to find a good one here in the US, and sail her across the pond.
There have been many that have had two adults and one or more children aboard, and they have lived aboard and sailed extensively in reasonably good comfort.
Check on some of the boats listed for sale by owners on my website, at www.westsail.com, and you will get a good idea of asking prices versus condition and equipment.
The normal purchase procedure here in the US is to negociate a price, subject to survey and sea trials, and put down a deposit, usually about 10 percent of the price. If either the survey or sea trials is not to your satisfaction, then your deposit is returned, less any direct expenses incurred (such as the haulout, surveyors charges, etc.).
I am available to do surveys on the Westsail boats, and do travel to other parts of the country to do them, based of course, on my schedule and other committments.
If you want to know more about the care and feeding of the Westsail boats, you might want to obtain a copy of my Westsail Service Manual. You can read about it on my website. It is available for $30.00 US, which includes overseas mailing.
