I think you have to add Outbound and Passport to that list.

There is no such thing.

Best is what will do the job best, and there are many jobs, and many ways to do them jobs.

There are also many ways to build a boat. Is solid GRP better than sandwich? Is carbon better than alloy? Is long keel better than fin&bulb? None is better. None is best then.

I think there are very many very well designed and built boats that could be seen as very reasonable options to take one blue water cruising. Especially that you proposed a very generous budget.

I think the following could be included in a very broad 'good designers/designs/boatyards' list:

Alubat, Akilaria, Amel, Arcona, Bowman/Rival, Baltic, Cherubini, Contest, Contessa, HR, J, Kanter, Koopmans, K&M, Malo, Morris, Najad, Oyster, Pogo, PS, Swan, Regina, Valiant, Vancouver, X-Yachts, Zaal ...

Oho. Here you have a minor portion of what could be a very long list. Much as I am not clear why one would want such a list.

Cheers,
b.

Re: Best built world cruiser between 250K - 500K

I see where you are coming from barnakiel, but the whole point of the thread is what do each sailor cruiser think what their idea of the best type boat is in that price range. Purely speculative and their personal opinions. There is no right or wrong answer. And I am very sure that most of the users on here are fully aware of the variables that you mentioned. But again, this is meant to be a fun, personal opinion thread.. I like your list as I love oysters and K&M but I think those would fall outside the price range given unless it is really old and needing some work...

Thanks for partaking..

Man, you have no heart!

OK, then ...

My vote is:

34% Dykstra/K&M/Bestevaer
33% Alubat/Cigale
33% Amel

Yes, I am a boatizer.

It shouldn't get any crazier than the boats mentioned in this thread! There can only be one and that's the Sundeer of-course the 56 and 60 can both be had for the budget mentioned.

You are right.

The Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 is the correct answer.
