A Coastal Cruising Boat in my opinion is not catagorised by the Mark, Designer
or Build quality but by the person who owns it....
I've known some one with a Cabo Rico
who would not leave the ICW
I've also known someone who sailed a Westerly Nomad 22 in the Jester Challenge..
A Tiki 21.... marineply/epoxy/glass Cat tied together with bits of string has sailed UK to New Zealand
.... see Kali in my Photo's.
You have Blue Water
sailors and Coastal sailors... boats go anywhere...
