Blue water cruising boats

Xnavyx2:

Might add to that list:

Saga 43
Hinckley 45
Nordic 44
Baba 35 and 40
Tatoosh 42

All of these are proven bluewater cruisers.

I was especially impressed by the Saga. That boat is solid, well outfitted for cruising, and _fast_. Did a test run here in Puget Sound, 12-15 kt. SW''erlies. Maxed out at 8.5kt upwind, 8kt broad-reach.

Very impressive. Expensive, yes - but impressive.
