I think your comment needs to be considered in terms of context. I would not say they are slow in light winds when compared to other serious, heavy-duty cruising boats. Our PHRF is 111 (New England) which is not bad for a 37,000 pound boat designed in the late 1970s. They are slow compared to J-boats of similar LOA. It is important to remember that these Bristols were built as cruiser-racers when that term meant something. Our 45.5 did at least one Newport-Bermuda race back in the day.

An asymmetric should be seen as a standard part of the cruising sails wardrobe. We have done a lot of sailing in slow wind areas - from Panama to Ecuador, Ecuador to Galapagos, and diagonally across the ITCZ (far) off the Brazilian coast. Did very little motoring in these many hundreds of miles of light air. BTW, interesting question is how diagonal to make such a passage.

You could take a look at Wind Wanderer, but might be bigger than you want to go.

Re: Looking for 40-50' Bluewater Monohull Sailboat <$200k

Would you be interested in a Hinckley 50 yawl in perfect condition with all conceivable electronics; two autopilots, in-mast furling (all sails can be set and furled from the cockpit); easily single-handed, sails excellent, the prettiest boat in any harbor, and a solid sea boat that will take you anywhere.

Re: Looking for 40-50' Bluewater Monohull Sailboat <$200k

Shawn,

If you are still in the market for a blue water cruiser, may I suggest you take a look at our sailboat, Magnolia? She is a Morgan 44 1990 sloop and is posted on this site and on Yacht World at $109,000. She is in great condition and well equipped for liveaboard cruising. In fact she has a brand new mainsail. We would still be out on her, but a trawler found us! We are glad to supply all records and logs, more pictures and answer any questions. We even have a customized manual specific for this boat with all instructions, part numbers, etc. Take a look! If you are interested, please send me a private message. Thanks!

Re: Looking for 40-50' Bluewater Monohull Sailboat <$200k

Hi Shawn. If you're still looking, take a look at our 1974 Olympic Adventure 47' Ketch. She doesn't tick all the boxes (1974), but fits a lot of what you're looking for. Tri-cabin, huge engine room and workbench, gobs of storage space. She's made at least one circumnavigation in her past already. Rigging 2008, sails are all 2008 or newer.
