My boat is an Olympic Adventure 47, a Ted Brewer design. 3 cabin, 14.5 foot beam with some healthy tumblehome and V shape and does not slam at all.

But the OP was looking for newer boats!

I think what made that possible was the old school “V” shaped hull and full keel design of that 1970’s boat. Now that I’m looking for a boat for my family, we need at least three cabins, ideally 4, but the problem I’m running into is that a lot of these old school Water boats">blue water boats are two cabin designs. Do any of you know of a newer boat builder who still builds boats with sea kindly design (V shaped hull with a fullish keel) that also incorporates 3-4 cabins?

It's a semicustom, so you can customise the layout with 4 cabins.
Even if for 4 cabins the 50ft could be better

His boat is identified in his profile as an Alden 50.

Which you can look up on Sailboatdata.com

I also have a Brewer design.

One wonders why go to newer designs. Probably driven by the percieved need of 4 cabins or assuming boars age like cars.

We will gently inform him of is errors without telling him we are doing so.

Umm...

Alden 50: beam 13.5 ft
Alden 50 (Cheoy lee version): beam 13.16 ft
Beneteau 50: beam 14.76 ft
Bavaria 50: beam 14.73 ft
(Those two chosen at random, and they are quite typical of the era)

So, not only are the max beams greater in late design production boats, the beam is carried further aft, This results in FAR greater internal volume than in the early and more traditional designs of equal length.

The comments about underwater shape are relevant, but there are also benefits to the modern shapes in terms of off-wind performance and heel angles going to windward.

I'm not advising that the OP should get such a boat, but we should be factual in the discussion of the choices.

Re: Newer boats with “V” shaped hulls?

Perhaps differentiate between 3>4 "sleeping areas" and 3>4 "bedrooms".
If you want bedrooms there are lots of modern boats with hulls shaped, (in plan view,) like an arrowhead that will rattle your fillings out in a rough sea.
If you go older it's much easier to get a boat that will be easier on your nerves and fillings when things go south.
The older S&S Swans will take a family anywhere in comfort, make good speed on passages, and not knock/throw you around like a BB in a boxcar.

Re: Newer boats with “V” shaped hulls?

I’ve also looked at some boats since starting this thread like the Compass 47 and Kaufman 47 that seem to be quite sea kindly and relatively newer boats.
