The Mahina list is below in post #6. I will attempt to add other widely agreed on bluewater boats to my post #8 below using experienced cruisers opinions who have owned the boats, and fellow mods to cull out boats with serious bluewater FULL TIME cruising deficiencies. If you disagree with a boat listed...make your case on the thread! If you believe a specific boat should be included AND you have personally cruised it extensively in blue water make your case as well. I am not attempting to dictate which boats are blue water...only to list MY opinions about some boats that are not listed. You are free to list your own opinions on this thread as well.
Please DO NOT use this thread to ask questions about WHETHER a boat you are considering buying is a blue water boat. Start a new thread.
