In-between Coastal &Blue Water cruiser
RMF, just how comfortable do you want those accommodations to be? In terms of a nice balance between that and performance, I agree with Jeff''s suggestions. Island Packets and the adjective "peformance" are seldom used in the same sentence but they do make blue passage in comfort, albeit slowly. If my memory serves me correctly Kimberlite, a great Tartan 37 with all the right stuff is for sale.
