Blue water doublehander.

Happy New Year to all. I'm new to the site and looking at a Crealock 34 to do an Atlantic crossing, doublehanded. Any ideas or suggestions of other more suitable boats? (Have not yet purchased the boat.)

Suitable is too broad a term Jack without some more info . . where are you based? Which direction you heading? (some boats easier to source one side of the pond, some on the other) any extended liveaboard plans? experience? age? Anyway, welcome!! You're in the right place to make friends and get the knowledge, and HNY to you too!!

This book is one of the most informative works on seaworthiness in modern yachts. It tells you what works and why.

Aloha Jack,
Welcome aboard!! I like Crealock designs and know that the 37 is a very capable off shore vessel. I don't know the 34 so can't give advice on it.
Hope you find the answers to all your questions here.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

The Valiant 40 would be a good choice in a double ender.

Or a Hans Christian if you haven't won the lottery or robbed a bank recently .
