My wife and I are looking for a boat to sail away on. I'm trying not to be too picky with the layout, but I have a certain general layout in mind and it doesn't seem as difficult to find as it's turning out to be.
We want to have guests aboard as much as possible and look forward to sailing with a couple of kids
. We want to buy a boat that is going to last us for a long time.
The layout I have in mind would provide 3 separate cabins - one for my wife and I and two smaller (one or two berths) that kids
or guests can call their own. I love center-cockpit layouts that leave so much room in the aft. I wonder why I haven't found any layouts that divide the aft right down the middle creating two identical cabins. It seems like there's plenty of room. I also wouldn't mind if the master cabin
was in the aft and the forepeak was divided into two separate cabins.
We're talking about a diesel
rig (flexible), 44-50' boat under $150k. Any help would be appreciated.
