I'm on my second boat and am getting closer to the boat want. But then I bet no matter what one always wishes for something different at differnt times.
What boat do you want next

Re: Your Recommended Boat for my Plans

The 1976-1983 Pearson 365, either Ketch or Sloop rigged. There was a different 36 model earlier and another different 36 model later. There were also some Pearson 36
Cutters with the same interior but those have a deeper draft.

The P 365 carries 50 gallons of fuel and 150 gallons of water. It has an excellent livable interior that includes a head with a separate useable stall shower and a large galley.

These are pretty stout and have a 46 draft.

Note; the later 1980 models and up had more teak in the interior.

Oh my! Now I compelled to defend my boat. I first moved aboard a performance Sparkman & Stephens design back in 1971, but I've been sailing and living aboard Morgan Out Islands since 1973. My specs are fairly similar to the Island Packets and I have matched and sometimes overtaken them. All the "featherdusters" do sail circles around me until the wind is up to 15 or 20 and then I'm usually with them, but performance is not the purpose of my claim. We've raised two chidren from infancy to adults on board and cruised around 65,000 miles over more than forty years aboard with little strife and great comfort at marginal performance on our Morgan. We are admitted "cockpit potatoes" and we take our big trips by jet, this year the Galapagos and next spring New Zeeland cruising,- nothing goes to windward like a 747! I recommended a smaller boat to the OP, but that was only because I didn't think he was cruising with a family of four. If I was starting with one or two total aboard, then I would probably seek something around 30 to 35'.

Re: Your Recommended Boat for my Plans

You don't hav to completely give up your idea of a cat.
Snowbird 36, 1986, Pris DKK 220.000, Brugt Flerskrogsbd Slges, Varberg Sverige

The above is in Sweden, but similar boats should be even cheaper in the states.

this is around usd 40k

Re: Your Recommended Boat for my Plans

My choice would be an Islander 36, if I was to down size that would be on the top of my list.
