Re: Smallest boat you can live with

My non negotiables:

Encapsulated keel
Skeg hung rudder
Centre cockpit
En-suite cabin with a double bunk for a 6'4" and a 5 ft f/all
En-suite double visitors accommodation.
Safe, strong, storm resistant
Fastish passage-maker.

This because my usage will soon be long term cruising in the South Pacific.

Fridges, watermaker, genset, etc. are all negotiable but as it happens, I will have them all by the time we leave.

So, short story, I already have the smallest boat I would be happy with - she's 44ft.
