I bet both a bit cramped, but that issue is a lower priority for me.

Re: Trailerable blue-ocean: exists?

Tinkerbelle 13 1/2 foot centerboarder crossed the Atlantic. Does that make it a "bluewater" boat?
Then the complete family of 4 circled the globe on a Tartan 27.
So did a 24 foot Wharram Catamaran.

See " The Robert Manry Project ".

I have owned and sailed 44 years on sailboats that varied from ultralite to " my Bluewater very heavy W 32". This last one mentioned would be the
next to last one I would choose to cross an ocean.

Sorry, I guess I am tired of hearing this one is OK because..."Bluewater" in the promo.

7.17 beam, a record for narrow I think.

sample bargain FREE, or close to free! - Page 18 - Cruisers & Sailing Forums
If you can live with the headroom.. I believe the plastic ones went to 5ft.. 6inches more than the original timber design.

Re: Trailerable blue-ocean: exists?

Good to know, thanks. It seems very few boats under 8'6" beam offer much headroom.

I wish they listed that stat in sailboatdata.

Sorry, but I'm having trouble extracting useful info from your post. The list of boats that **don't** fit my criteria is quite long I agree.

Yes Tartan 27 does seem to mostly fit the bill, if a perfect example appeared at the right price I may overlook the fact that it is 1/2" too wide

If the topic as a whole is not of interest to you, please feel free to just ignore the thread.
