Why, the one I have for sale
of course! But seriously.... There are a lot of boats out there, and each one addresses certain things well, and other things not so well. Based on my own seemingly never ending quest for the perfect boat, sail as many different designs as you can, listen to all the advice you can find, then you decide what boat fits your needs,and forget what the brochure says you need..
Personally, I think cutters are the best rig for single
handing, and ketch
for double handing. double enders are the fastest cruising designs with a full keel
, and very seakindly. A boat with a forward berth is a waste of space. Lancer
puts the main salon
forward, and the galley
amidship, with the berthing aft. I am not fond of the boat, but the interior
layout is brilliant.
Keep in mind that these are my opinions based on the boats that I have owned. I would imagine that just about everyone who posts will have a different view on at least one of these points.
Boat bum for a while around the local marina, and sea what fits.
