I am seeking opinions about the best US current
designers (architects or otherwise) for cruising sail boats in the 27 to 34 foot on deck
range. I suspect I know the most common answer, but there are some significant differences between what he does and what I like. For various reasons my preferences run from the Nor'sea
27 (aft cabin
and rudder), to Bristol Channel Cutter
28 (fore cabin
and hull) and on to the Westsail 32 (solid) and even the oft maligned Dreadnought 32 (ketch, tiller, and motion comfort aside from the hobby horsing for most). All opinions appreciated, but please do not argue about why I do not want this or that. At my stage of life I need to move, not debate, and most of the fun is getting there.
