I'm looking for the most robust, heavy duty, reliable boat maker over there for full time liveaboard
, ocean crossing
(and would like also polar region...but let's limit it to high latitute cruising)
No problem if it's slow, or not a reaching performance sailboat...
No ex charter
, no mass production last generation disposable leasing chartering boat
Dimension about 50-55 ft, max 60ft.
have at least 4-5 berths (better if 5-6) above the owner cabin
(for occasional chartering, the only way to earn some money)
Material, not steel
for sure, maybe alluminium, and what you think about the 30 and more old sailboat with polyurethane
resins? The old one replaced by epoxy
resing, the one that get the hull
delaminated after 20 years...
max 80.000 including final refit
and customization, so max 60- max max 65.000.
I have to admit that i really like the pilothouse (like the SP cruiser), the trawler
style, with an enclosed space with a table at least for eating looking at the sea while ouside is cold would be great.
and easy rigging
are better, but also ketch
no problem, i like free standing mast
(freedom yacht ) but quite expensive and max is 44 ft..Some bruce roberts
What about as soon as i get to boat, get it on the hard
, make it get dry for 2 weeks or more, sand anti fouling
, and cover ALL the hull
with a good layer of epoxy
Then add coppercoat on it, just to be sure it's like a new watertight and stiffened hull (more or less), no osmosis
, no problem,ecc...
These 2 are the only affordable in alluminium
The fastest, but not many other info.

The best, the almost perfect but 2 x engine!
1982 Hydra 46 Vela Barca in vendita - www.yachtworld.it
One like this but with 2 x sail area (original only 57 square meter, while a same size sailboat about 100 square meters) and a keel
(found used but only 150k to 450k usd...and it's a motorsailer
, not a true sailboat)
SP Cruiser - Yacht Island Packet
I even found some old icebreaking steel
tug, very fascinating, quite good fitted for 50.000 euro...20.000 of sails
, and refit
and it's done
but too beamy to be decently fast (meaning 3-4 kts) only with wind
Thanks all for the help and the idea
