Are there boats/rigs like this

Are there any boats that would fit these specs?

Capable of passage making
Seaworthy(30'+waves force9+)
Suitable for a drying mooring/able to be careened (Bilge keels?)
Seakindly
Around 40' LOA
Accommodations for Two couples in private cabins
4+ additional berths (these could be folding)
separate shower
Large galley
Capable of being single handed
Rigged with blocks instead of winches
no need to go on the fore deck to reef sails
preferably with out roller-furling
A workshop (4'x6' approx)
able to withstand constant use.

Is there such a boat?
And of not is it possible to design/build one?

if you were/are a designer and someone came to you with these specs what would you tell them?

Westerly made a couple of 36 footers, Solway centre cockpit and Galway, aft cockpit I believe . Not bad looking boats 4 twin keelers. Laurent Giles the designer , there may be other big bilge keelers probably all made in the UK.

Re: Are there boats/rigs like this

Having sailed a bilge keeler across the English Channel in a F7, a 'near gale', the thought of one in a F9 would scare the hell out of me!

pirate Re: Are there boats/rigs like this

You could check out the new Haka 152.... only down side...its a 50ftr
Haka 152's hull is inspired by the Flash 50 to provide outstanding passage making speed.
Combining sail power with reasonable draft was done with our latest evolution of the Lerouge Twin Keel System.
A carbon mast is required to carry lots of sail without compromising stability.
Accommodation is simple and structural to get a high ballast ratio. Fresh water tanks are used as ballast.
All weights are amidships such as the engine under the table.
The cockpit is sheltered by the cabin extension.

The closest I can think of are the beowulf series from Steve Dashew but they are a good deal more than 40 ft. Spiffy boats though!

Take a look: DashewOffshore.com - the serious cruising sailor's website

Also, you don't mention anything about draft and that will be a biggy if it is restricted.

Re: Are there boats/rigs like this

how 'bout a 38 ft spray-- they are mostly steel, beamy as heck at 15 ft, bilge keeled...lol... beach em....and ROOMY inside. many are gaff rigged and they are every cool boats-- some neighbors cruised 9 yrs around the word in thurs, and now are back out for another go at it. theirs was 38X15x3...ONLY WHAT SOME FOLKS CONSIDER A DRAWBACK IS --MOST ARE STEEL.
if you are seeking a more overly pricey boat, these are found used in some places-- but ye have to look for em.
or westsail 42 or 43.. excellent cruisers. formosa 51 or force 50. deep keeled and stable. not overly pop0ular as most yotties like new plumbbow trendy boats..LOL... but these will do quite nicely if you want a 2 cabin offer. gozzard designs a good 2 cabin also-- bayfield...is nice boat and sails well. did well in caribean....might be not cheap, tho.....
but the only boat come into my head with your description , my friend, is a spray. they DO come in different keel styles, btw.......

Re: Are there boats/rigs like this

Sounds like you want a catamaran, and probably something simple like a Wharram. I have seen those exact specs. on quite a few Wharrams, and they are some of the only boats that often have dedicated workshops. A cat is the best type on drying moorings.
