Intermediate sailor seeks advice re: liveaboard pocket cruisers

Libby, look for one of the smaller Bayfield yachts as a possiblity for yourself. The Bayfield line was designed by Ted Gozzard whose speciality is/was short handed cruising boats. The yard built 26-28 footers up unil 1987 or so. There is a bayfield discussion group on the Sailnet lists that is very active.

Another strong small boat is the Northsea 26. These boats are trailerable but are very capable cruisers. I know of several that have been single handed across the Atlantic.

Good luck!
