Full Keel Canoe Stern

I am looking for a bluewater cruiser that is heavy displacement, canoe stern and full keel (basic requirements). Can anyone give me any sailboat models that fit these basic requirements?

Robert Perry's designs for Hans Christian, LaFitte, etc out of Taiwan in the '70s and '80s. These were all nice sailing boats that took the full kee, heavy displacementl design to about it's maximum for sailing qualities. Not fast in light air but will embarass the newer go fast boats when the gets reasonable.

My CT48 (1978) is full keel and canoe stern.

while some of those canoe-stern Perry designs, such as the Hans Christians, Babas or the Tayana 37, have modified full keels, others such as the Lafitte 44 or the Valiant 40 feature fin keels with skeg rudders.

Ingrid, Westsail, and most Archers are not canoe stern, they are double enders. You want specifically canoe stern? Most of them are chinese.
The "Inbred and Wetsnail" are at least 'Murrican!

That being the case, the Baba 35 and the Tayana 37 would be good starting points. There are a zillion Tayana 37s out there, but I've always been partial to the Baba for aesthetic reasons. I personally think the Baja 35 pilot house is about the most beautiful PH ever built.

However, if price is no object, a boat to die for in that range would be the Hans Christian 38. While it is not technically a "full keel," its "long keel" provides all the advantages while at the same time giving a bit more maneuverability than most full-keel canoe-stern yachts.

Have a look at Lord Nelson 35 and 41.
We loved our 35.
Every tank had excellent access and could be removed if necessary without having to cut up any interior wood. You can't say that about a lot of boats.

They were very well thought out designs, roomy with lots of storage.

I was going to suggest a Tayana 37 as well.
