Re: D/L Ratio Questions for Cruising Boat

If you're willing to spend $350-400K you'll have a wide open list of candidates in the 45-50 foot range, especially if you are looking at used as well.

Even something like this:

2000 J/Boats J/46 Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

Probably best of both worlds.

Or Tayanas, larger Passports (47) Hylas, etc etc.

Those are my dream parameters!! .. tho like Marty I'd probably drop into the high 100s/low 200s as an ideal D/L... but please don't get hung up on those numbers.
