I am heading as far at Coff's this January. Haven't got time to go further. Two and a half years and this thing called work will no longer be a sheet anchor.

Well, there are a lot of great boats and I am very well pleased with my Rhodes Meridian Seafarer. She is very roomy for a 25footer and handles heavy weather beautifully. Though an old boat and still needing some upgrading I would not hesitate to take this boat anywhere. Yes, a bigger boat would be nice but then the expense of owning and operating would be more and for single handed sailing I find a 25 footer nice. I know a lot of people confuse the Meridian with later seafarers built on Long Island, NY which weren't the greatest boats, but my is a 1962 build in Holland.

I agree that the Cambria 44/46 is one of the most beautifully designed yachts. I have had one for nine years and continued to be impressed with its quality and sailing characteristics. And this is after owning an Express 37, three C & C's and a Walstead.

I have a Island Packet 485 which has proven to be a fine larger size cruising boat and can be easily single handed. I will say the price is not as attractive as other boats and is not in most sailors budgets but the livability on her is great for my wife and I and she handles beautifully. I think the question should be rephrased as many sailors have many preferences. I would say mine is the best for "me" not all sailors. The type of sailing I do can land me in some fairly rough weather and for that she has proven seaworthy in 20+ seas as she has she is a pretty large boat she would not be ideal if all you do is plan to travel the Caribbean depending on were you want to go.

I've been aboard a HR 48 a couple of times. It was the version with the armchairs.The combination from outstanding finish, the maximum use of available space, the exemplary fittings, big tank capacity ( fuel 800 liters / water 910 liters ) and the fact that you can sail it as a couple makes it for me one of the best blue water cruisers.

Greetz,

Koen

I'm brand new to the forum and anxiously entered this discussion to find my next boat. At the risk of offending everyone on my first foray, I must say you are all "CHICKENS"! Come on, someone stick their neck out!!! LOL
