Oceanic 42

We are a couple looking for a well built, comfortable, centre-cockpit sloop or ketch to live aboard for coastal and offshore cruising. The vessel should also have at least reasonable sailing performance. The Jack Savage designed Oceanic 42 / 46's seem to tick a lot of boxes. Can anyone offer any constructive comments please? Thanks, RnC.

Re: Oceanic 42

Welcome RnC

I have sailed a few blue water miles in a friends oceanic 46. It was a great cruising boat.
Strongly built (although the boat in question did subsequently develop some osmosis.) and reasonably fast.
I have heard of couple of corrosion problems with the chainplates, but that's not expensive to fix.

Have you any specific questions?

Re: Oceanic 42

Folks, thanks for the replies and the welcome!
Specifically re the Oceanics, do they have good stowage space; good engine room access; user-friendly galley and a comfortable master cabin? We are also looking at such boats as Ted Brewer designs (e.g. Whitby); Robert Perry designs; C&Cs or a well built Roberts Offshore. Basically, we want something that's going to be safe, roomy, comfortable and not break in the first storm we sail through.

They are tough safe boats,
They are a bit smaller for their length than the very modern boats (that carry heir wide beam a long way aft). Particularly the 46 which was built on the 42 mould with an extra 4 feet added in the middle. However this translates to very good sea keeping abilities.
Smallish engine room
Very good storage (much better than a modern AWB)
Good tankage ( we had 1000l water on the 46)
Good galley, works well at sea
Reasonable master cabin, but not as large as most centre cockpit boats.
Some were built for the charter market at Hamilton island and these often have 2 smaller rear cabins, but I suspect it would be an easy conversion.

We own a Savage Oceanic 46 "sea trek iii" and concur with much of what Nolex has mentioned above. We have double cabins and two heads with showers, we love her! If you have any specific questions please ask away.

There is a good one for sale in Sydney if I can find the link I'll post it here.

Wink Re: Oceanic 42

Our Oceanic 42 "Gypsy Rose" has been listed for sale. have a look at australiawide.com for details.

There is more new gear on board than can be listed. This is a "turn key" and go cruising vessel.
