Re: 45' + blue water cruiser
Note the vote for Valiant and PSC so gonna put in a strong vote for an Outbound 46 or if you are flush a 52. They made 53 of the 46 hulls so far and all are still floating(grin). All are being used or have been used as blue water passage makers. For present we are using ours as a part time live aboard but hopefully soon will spit up the anchor. Given the quality the price is quite moderate and the after delivery service excellent. Beyond the basics you can customized it any where you wish.
