Looking for a 40-47 ft 3-berth w/pullman, not v berth

Looking for a 40-47 ft 3-berth w/pullman, not v berth, under $200k

Other than the beneteau 411 and catalina mkii, are there any other boats I should consider with those specs? This will be for 4 people (1 couple, 2 singles) doing the world arc.

Thanks!

We sail the two cabin model of the Catalina 470.

They make a three cabin version as well.

It has a Pullman Berth forward as well as two heads & showers.

I bet if you go on yachtworld.com and search the Caribbean and put in 40-47' less than $200k in the advanced search you will see lots of excharter boats that meet your requirements

Re: Looking for a 40-47 ft 3-berth w/pullman, not v berth

I can highly recommend the Catalina 42 MkII. I know you said "beside that" but we've had our 42 for 10 years now and it's been fantastic. Family of 6 - started cruising it when kids were 4 months, 2, 10 and 13 years old. We were away for 3 weeks this summer and now they are 10, 12, 21 and 23! It's been great! Definitely easy for a 1 couple/2 singles situation.

I agree. It's been the boat I would feel the most "at home" in. It's fairly roomy and airy which I like more than other boat's. Do you have the wing keel or deep fin version? What are your thoughts on both options for a circumnavigation?

We have the fin and it's fantastic for sailing but not so good in shallow waters. We are definitely the full 6'8" and have run aground recently in locations that we've never had a problem before thanks to the storms we've had on the coast (mostly Superstorm Sandy). I've heard of numerous people using the C42 for circumnavigation although it's not a true blue water boat thanks to the open stern but it is definitely comfortable for longer term sailing, IMO.

Hubby and I have gone to numerous boat shows and we haven't found a boat that is better for our family in our price range. That makes us feel really good!! Although the Bavaria 50 with the walk-in closet definitely impressed this woman! LOL

Re: Looking for a 40-47 ft 3-berth w/pullman, not v berth

Here's a few to try:

Passport 40
Hans Christian 41T
Caliber 40/47LRC

All of the above are capable bluewater boats. Assuming we're talking pre-owned, the Passport is easily available in your price range. The Caliber 40 and the HC41T are at the upper end of your budget. The 47LRC is much more expensive.

Thank you. The Passport 40 might be a bit tight, but I liked it. The Hans Christian 41T is not my style, too slow.

Nordic 44

Or if you really want speed, a Saga 43.

A Catalina MKii 3 cabin Pullman that were 44/45ft would be exactly what I would be looking for!

I prefer the pullman style over v-berth. I'm shocked at how rare a 3 cabin with pullman style bed up front is in the 40-45 ft range!

Yeah a Hylas/Stevens 47 would be the ticket. Beautiful boat, seaworthy as hell, and probably in his price range, but might need a bit of work. There's been one on the yard here being refit that I've been drooling over. Here's one right at the top of his range that looks well kept with a sh!t ton of new gear, repowered too:

It's really hard to make fit. With a pullman, you have to put the head aft or in the bow, and everyone hates a head in the bow. Put it aft, and squeezing in that third cabin becomes very difficult.
