I can believe in the safety of the boats on this list, but comfort? The Contessa 26 is on the list. "Bika," a Contessa 26, is currently in our harbor on the Mississippi. (Google BIKA and read their web site.) The owners have flown back to Norway to earn some boat bucks so they can continue. They have lived on this boat since May 2005, and I don't understand how! Two people in a sailbaot that measures 25 feet six inches by 7 feet six inches is not my idea of comfort! I'd much rather live on an Island Packet 465CC. But maybe that's because it's the only sailboat I've ever been on with over 7 foot headroom! It's too new to have made that list.
