Pretty open-ended question Mr. Tony: You may ask 3000 people the same question and get 3000 different answers.

Better narrow down your needs and desires to a few types or makes of boats, THEN ask for the pros and cons on those boats from experienced owners/sailors.

For what you want to do, if you want a monohull, I'd consider the Kelly Peterson 44. They are older boats, but the hulls are heavily built and fast (long waterline). Center cockpit, cutter rig. Active owner's group supported by a very informative website. The 46 is same boat, 2 feet longer, more bucks of course.

Link is to the "for sale" section. Lots of these boats doing serious voyaging today.

Aloha Tony,
Welcome aboard! I'll bet you can't guess how many other folks have asked the same question. Fiberglass, 32-36 LOD, Cutter Rig, Diesel Engine, Aft Cockpit is what I always recommend. Hope you can find what you are looking for.
Kind Regards,
JohnL

Hi there i am Juan and i think if you can afford to buy a valiant 42 then go for it.Comfort and safety has no price so a valiant is one good option if not the best.

HELLO - I agree, (I am satisfied with my bias - pm me for any aspects about the Peterson 46)
