I assume you are talking about 12 meters. I was on Courageous a long time ago when it was in Newp, racing
. Nothing down below. Low overhead and quite cramped. All aluminmum construction and actually, not very light, by modern standards.
Not sure of your price or size range, but if you had some crazy compulsion to do this, you might consider a Farr 40 or similar. Probably a fraction the price of even an ancient 12 meter.
If you have real money
, get David Pedrick to build you a copy of his new Navy
As for an Ocean 60 or 70....those are sleds, meant for breaking hull speed
and skimming the water
at the greatest possible speed. You would be hard pressed to have anything close to a comfortable, enjoyable ride.
The lightest, fastest real cruising boat is probably a J Boat...but that is just a guess.
If you are looking for more speed....and can handle it...you can overcanvas a boat. Change the rig to a solent and have a Code 0 and everything. Or, get a fairly light boat, and rip out the interior
But, I suspect your goal is to cruise
on a pretty cool, real racer
. In that case, One of the Farr's is probably your best bet. I have seen some very VERY high end ones that were obviously fit out for cruising, in absolute luxury....while still being a racing hull
. Key West
race week will have them.
Best of luck.
