With one of these On board it won't matter if the boat is a floating gin palace or a bath tub.

I've sailed with a number of different guys and different women. While much of it is about individual tastes, there is no doubt that on average the women I've sailed with at least initially are much more attracted visually to a more modern, ergonomic look and features relating to comfortable living. Guys have been more appreciative of value and how the function relates to intended use.

With time on the boat, I think each gains a greater appreciation of the other, but even over time, the general differences remain.

I can tell you that once over 40, what a woman wants from a man is a guy that will do housework! As far as boats is concerned, a lot of women would do the "cruising thing" much longer, if they were on a well designed & sailed multihull. This is not bias talking, (although I am), it's my observation after 15 years of living aboard... all over.

it is nice to know we. as stereotyped creatures only like multihulls, bendytoys and bs--LOL-- too bad the guys saying this never met a female who SAILS. ROFL... i truly believe those guys are speaking reflectively in that they speak reflecting what THEY want, rather than what the female really wants. ye think????

No man knows what women want. Therefore most of the above posts are just idle speculation.

That was exactly my train of thought, but you don't know what you don't know until you do, and I have never sailed a cat. Lots of folks do. So I figure there might be something I don't know.

What women want...

Zehag... Certainly meant no offense. The title of the thread: "What women want" is in effect suggesting that all women want the same thing, which is a generalization, and like all of them... frequently true, but not always. I figured it was all in good fun, or the title wouldn't be worded that way.

My comment that most women over 40 want a man that does house work... This was the results of surveys of thousands of American women. (I forgot by which institution). They preferred that (housework), to a husband that was rich, great looking, or a great lover. I know I started upping my participation in the housework! It is easier to improve than the others...

The comment I made about Multihulls was my personal experience, of which I know more than anyone, as you do yours. We lived aboard for 15 years and thousands of nights on the hook. I noticed that after a while many of my monohull lifetime cruiser friend's wives were getting sick of it, long before their trusty captains, but after switching to a "well designed" multihull, they started enjoying it again. (Level / more spacious / can see outside / brighter down below, faster, etc.)

This is not to say that middle aged monohull women don't love their boats and the lifestyle just as much. Each type is better at different things. Our Searunner is great for tropical anchoring out, being totally solar self sufficient, and as a clear water dive platform. Many monohulls are better at fitting into marinas and boatyards, cheeper to own & maintain, and FAR easier to heat or cool. Then there is the higher payload... Since we moved to NC, with winters in the teens at times, we have moved off of the boat. We hope to get back out to where our boat shines again... some day!

Enjoy the boat that you've got, that's always the best... Mark

ROFL...... i just throw in my old age slant on things as i see they need-- mebbe a lil stimulus to let some who dont know there are folks not able to be stereotyped--LOl--many of us, actually-- but then, had you wished to find one who is like us, you had to forgo the lil bennies gained from one who listened when grandmother said" ladies DONT sail...." -i ran from that like i was on fire.
yes i can cook, clean, live a"normal" life--- but who WANTS that, really?? not those of us with independent thinking brains and lack of desire for abuse. i dont DO well at all when imprisoned in a "normal" environment.
but then , i m NOT (LOL) "normal"
i am over 40
i have sailed monohulls since i was 7 and first learned
i LOVE the looks of the old clipper ships--and mine is as close as i can get to that in modern day sailboat creation, not that mine is modern--lol--1976 aint today.
mebbe the difference is that i had great grandparents i actually met and visited with on fairly frequent basis.....ye learn the ways of the old ones-is better slant on reality than is out there now.
besides, i am over 40 now....LOL--have been for a bit of time, yet....

but i cook GOOOOOOOOD...LOL
