The Polish yacht industry is leading provider of trailerable cruiser in Europe. It can be worth considering I believe.

Thanks DoubleWhisky! Do you think any of these boats can be found in the U.S.? I'm worried about transporting it overseas if I find one in Europe.

I'll look into them.

Hi Capitana Chani!

I know that at least JANMOR is/was exporting a lot of motorboats to U.S. Hundreds a year some time ago. Delphia probably has its representative in U.S., but I'm not so sure about is. Anyway, why not give a try to contact them?
Trailer cruiser concept here is somewhat different than in U.S.
They are not simple weekenders, but real boats, wih small, but proper galleys, WC comparments, good sleeping, good locker space and so on. On such a boat You can live aboard much better than in camper car. And most are semi-custom, so You can get what You want.
Some pages are in Polish only, but You can always use contact page (normally "Kontakt" on the page) and send e-mail for details.

All links I posted regard well proven and solid boats. My own choices are Janmor. Delphia, Maxus, Phobos and Aquatic (Maxus probably as a first), but others are also nice boats.

Have a nice browsing

Thanks DoubleWhisky! I looked at the links, and you are right that the boats are amazing! The proper galley and head really amaze me compared to what I've seen here. Now I just need to luck into one in the states. Unfortunately, they are so nice that they are probably way out of my price range. We'll see though.

Thank you so much for your suggestion!

my opinions for what they're worth:

having sailed a cal20 for 5 years i cannot imagine any one person (let alone 2) actually living in it for longer than 24 hrs. no standing headroom. no room for a simple seastove . limited water storage , no built in h 2 0 tank. room for a portajon if you dont mind tripping over it everytime you get into the v berth. but staying in a seated position for 24 hrs, crawling around the v berth while it pours rain outside will disenchant you from the cal20. a sturdy well built daysailer it is , yes...

the danas and flickas: nice and very seaworthy, in fact blue water capable designs but very heavy to tow around if what you'll be doing is inland lakes.

i'd look for a compac if price is no object, or an older poptop catalina if it is.

Thanks for your views Mitch. I was leaning more recently towards at least a 24 and I'm hoping for a poptop to make it more like a camper. Head room is key when staying on them, you are so right.

Unfortunately, price is an issue. I'll still look into compac. Thanks!

Hi

Most of boats from the links have about 6 ft inside.

Why not to try to talk to yards about setting an agency in U.S. ?
It can help with the price...
I udnderstand that exchange ratio is now against You - much different than five - six years ago...

I have a 2002 West Wight Potter 19 that I'd let go well under your budget. I bought a 1978 oday 23 that I'm refitting and I don't need two boats.

Hi there, I saw this post and thought I would put a word in for the Chrysler line. The Chrysler 22 and the 26 are in my experience good boats. The have a swing keel, so you can get into nearly any spot you want. Some have galleys and the 26 has a private head. They are an older boat, but if you can find one in good shape, it may be worth looking into. Just to create more thought. Hope you find the boat that fits your needs. Take care.
