Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.

If only it didn't have nearly 7' of draft... Were these ever made in a shoal draft version?

Yamaha 36, nicely rebuilt new rigging in '06. I really like the layout, seems to be an interesting compromise between pilothouse and a normal deck.
Love the layout.

EDIT; I looked at both of those pilothouse yachts. The Northseas look to be a fair bit out of my budget, and both have saildrives, which I've got some pretty serious reservations about because of what I've read about them online. Coopers actually looked pretty interesting, is there a large issue with pilothouses and wind, how does one deal with a pilothouse offshore?
Were any versions made with shaft drives?
I suppose a saildrive could be fairly easily converted to electric via a Torqueedo, though they'd be a little short on power according to their specs on a boat that size.
