Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

150 as a daily MAX is no issue to many boats.

But 150 as a daily average is.

Unless the boat is big, racy or sails from Fortaleza to Trinidad.

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

I may be biased here, but it sounds like a Cabo Rico 38 fit's the bill nicely
Is the 90K number pre or post refit? A decent example can be had for that, but expect to spend at least half again to make her whole.

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

150 miles per day is only 6.25 knots. I assume the OP means a 24 hour day... about a 24 ft waterline.... if the wind lets you move at hull speed....

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

This one probably won't meet your # 12 criteria and as to sleeping 2-4, if you were looking for more than 2 you'd have to bunk on the settees. This boat is on my dock and I have long,long admired it. It is immaculate. The owner was a professional captain who sadly passed away far too young. His wife is moving near family and has just dropped the price by 50%. If I were looking with your criteria, I would snap this one up. When she finds her new home, I will miss seeing this beautiful little boat. Yes, I am in love with a boat and no- I have no interest in the sale of this boat. Just a boat I hate to see sitting tied to the dock when she was built to cross oceans...

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

Looks like in one thread of 20 posts we have gathered a whole bunch of pretty, well built, and highly desirable boats!

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

Unfortunately, I think this W32 is in the wrong part of the country...? 32' WESTSAIL seems to be a bargain with the gear.... hard to say I guess... newer engine, radar, windvane, canvas.... and only $1000 per foot!

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

If you liked the W32, you would love an HC33! They can be had for a good price if you look. We got ours as a repossession and with an electrical upgrade and new instruments, she was ready to go.

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

Cape George 31 is a pretty little boat that looks like a bigger BCC. There may be an Alajuela 38 needing reassembly for $50,000 in Port Townsend, WA still available. Do a google search, it's been on Ebay. Sounded like most of the work was done and just needed to be put back together. Any of the Bob Perry designs from Taiwan are good boats though they mostly have wheels.

A Westsail 32 will do roughly 175nm a day in ideal conditions. Did it a number of times. 150 is a more reasonable daily run but don't expect that as an average. We averaged 118nm a day for over 10,000 miles with almost no engine time on our W32. If you want a 150nm a day average, you need a boat with a looonnnggg waterline.

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

Well, after reviewing your insightful comments; I've decided to "readjust" my hopes of getting 150 miles/day while maintaining my other criteria. But I don't want to get a dog either; will a Bristol or Westsail get 110 miles a day? Is averaging 5knots to hopeful? I guess I value safe and pretty vs speed! Also, do you know if either boats are good to windward; say 40 degrees off the nose?

Thanks for you input.

IMHO

1) Go to Transpac results calculate Westsail's runs. There is no one answer to 'a day'. I bet a clean, light and well sailed West can easily run 110 a day and well beyond this number on a good day. On a less good day, under a less skilled driver, on a different course a daily run will be different.

2) Not many classic, cruising boats can sail 40 true. You may see 40 apparent though. Plenty depends on sails, seas, skills. Try to avoid dead upwind destinations.

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

I truly love the looks of those old design cutters. Garden designed some very interesting cutters and ketches. You might just take a look at one of his design books in the library.
If you click on my profile you'll see a photo of my last boat which was a Mariner 35 ketch designed by Garden. I averaged 5 knots for 23 days crossing the Pacific with her. Mine was wood but they make fiberglass versions which would be much more desireable. Do a search on this site for Mariner 36.
kind regards,

Re: Vintage Sailboat- Which to choose?

I think you could get a 150 mile day out of a westsail in a perfect reach.... but maybe the point is you cant count on that at all...
