I am curious... nobody has mentioned the Albin Ballad ( ....um, well, Sweden, but close enough)... Seaworthy, pretty, fast, and well built...... If you can find one, that's the way to go.
(I am a little biased on this )

Why not an Allegro 33? Designed by a genious S-O Norlin. Full keel doubleender 7.5 knots boatspeed 11ft wide No 1 built 1970-71. Bigger sister to the Allegro 27.
About 150 Allegro 33 are built. Built to the Swedish Koster rule also called K45. 5ft draft. Great hull mines 30 years old theres one crack in gelcoatsize of half a tennisball. Weight 5.6 tonnes on paper, mine weighs 6.5. Interior all teak no plastic. Its a fullblown bluewaterboat. Balances nicely, last weekend I sailed 40 miles 7hrs I steered 1hr the rest of the time I tied the tiller and it worked itself.
very very solid.

Let the winds blow I see the French/German massproduced heel over, cant see whats so comfortable about that.

Everything is a compromise./Harry

Why not a Maxi

Spent 15 years in Gbg sailing those! Not as big but fun fun fun.

Now I'm partial to Cascades. Built tough, oldest prodution boats around!
