I think the Azuree is more strong and safe than the Oceanis 37.
Hum! I don't know why you say that. The Azuree has a more hi-tech building but that is needed for a lighter boat (cored boat). The Beneteaus have a solid monolithic construction and I never heard nothing about the 37 not being solid. About safety why do you say that? Normally bigger boats are more seaworthy than smaller boats and I don't see anything that makes the Azuree different from the Oceanis 37 in that regard.
About the poor water storage capacity I think it should not be a big problem because I intend to use a water mater.
My biggest problem concerns the living space in the galley and cabins, but your reply satisfies me.
Could you make a comparison between RM 1050 and the Azuree 33?
Mainly based on safety and internal space.
About the use of the watermaker as main supply of water as a permanent set up for living aboard see what I said on the last post.
Regarding the RM 1050 and the Azuree 33 the RM is a boat much more addapted for extensive long range cruising (it was designed for that) and therefore much more adapted for living aboard. The only set back is that the front cabin does not have a door and can only be closed with a curtain. All the rest is better, including storage space, galley and tankage.
Just look at the difference in what regards water tankage: 720L to 160
RM 1050 - Yes chantier naval, sp√©cialiste du bateau de voyage
Regarding safety this boat has a much bigger ballast/disp. ratio compared with both the Oceanis and the Azuree. It is a stiff boat with many transatlantic crossings and a safe bluewater boat. The possibility of a cutter rig (that some have) increases also that bluewater character and makes it an easier boat to sail with bad weather.
