Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

Hi guys. 2nd post on here. My original post was about a boat for around 40k i was originally looking for something like a alberg 37 footer..

I have viewed a few of these boats and some others. I recently found a CSY 44 and fell in love with it.

My question for this year is, Im now looking for a 40ish footer that is solid and can cross the atlantic on a bad day. A few people have told me the csy 44 is for the tropics and not great offshore and around europe ect.

Is there a big 44ft boat similar to the csy 44 but more suited for atlantic/storms??

price range for boat purchase is around 60k.

thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

was really looking for names of full keel boats around 40ft that were tanks and not designed for the Caribbean more for bearing sea stuff. But thanks for the advise i guess.

My Allied 39 Ketch is for sale in these classifieds. http://www.cruisersforum.com/forums/...pit-83227.html
Allieds are proven world cruisers and the Ketch rig is great for single handed sailing.

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

The CSY 44 is solid, all glass and built like a tank. What objections are your advisers offering about the CSY? They aren't the fastest boat on the planet but I wouldn't hesitate to take one across the Atlantic in most any weather you would want to be out in.

If you are really going to sail the Bering Sea you might want to go with a steel hull and forget fiberglass production boats.

Most production boats will take a bigger beating. than the crew can stomach I've taken beneteaus and jeaneaus through survivial storms. A boat built like a tank tends to float like one. ( and sail like one)

Where do you intend to sail. How much experience do you have. Most weather you get is light airs not survival storms. Design the boat for that.

Weight does not equate to strength nor survivability. I suggest more sailing experience

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

I dont know of a boat built as heavily as a CSY. Sounds like your boat to me.

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

Peterson 44 , but you would be hard pressed to find one in your price range. Dont get hung up on long keel versas fin keel. There are good and bad in both designs. Radical short fins are not a good idea, but a medium length keel with a skeg hung rudder makes for a nice boat. Strength and sailing ability are more important than what type of underbody the boat has. I tend to like long keels, and there are some that sail great, but there are too many imitation pirate ships that only go to weather with a big diesel. The boats of Carl Alberg, Phil Rhoads, S&S boats, etc all have good sailing ability and look good (imho). Best of luck to you_______Grant.

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

Well all I can say is CSY sailing boats are TOUGH !! Connie and I have looked at serveral. And we just could not find one equiped like we wanted!! although theres one in the Mobile area that I would buy in a quick flash!! bilt like a tank, proper sails and equipment!! BUT its set up as a long line boat with big freezer! ECT, and a tight but livable area for a young couple or single handed sailor! I would single hand this boat anywhere anytime !! But Connie wants a little more living room and not so much fish hold and freezer !!LOL If ya want a SEA Boat take a look at this one on Y world!! Just my 2 cents

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

In the recent thread "how thick is your hull" I think the CSY was the thickest by FAR. I wouldnt necessarily take that as a good thing, but some people would!

Re: Best blue water sailboat around 40ft ish

I am not clear why you associate Atlantic with storms?

Believe me, if there are storms there, you should be elsewhere.
