List of Seaworthy Performance Cruisers IOR

I'm looking to buy a performance cruiser and I really like the Cal 39, problem is there are not so many available especially on the southern west coast of north america where I want to sail. Does anyone know of another design that comes close to the Cal 39 (aside form the Cal 40)? Something like the IOR one ton boats that have a robust construction and not too beamy. Thanks.

Most IOR boats had plenty of beam. The earlier ones had the particularly pinched sterns, but that was a feature of most IOR boats. The pinched sterns make them somewhat "lively" when running in a decent sea, particularly if over-canvassed.

Persoanally, I think any of the Frers / Dubois / Peterson / Farr 1-tonners from around 1980-85 are pretty good seaboats, provided they are still structurally sound...

Thanks Weyalan- I will research those designers further eith an eye on quality of construction, length/beam ratio and draft as these seem to be critical for cruising. Finding a design with a capsize ration under 2.0 and six feet of draft or less is important to me.

Using "seaworthy" and "IOR" in the same sentence is pretty amusing.
