Pretty, classic yachts for off shore

I am a very experienced sailor looking for a yacht design which is pleasing to the eye. I like the Columbia 50 and have recently looked at the old Bristol 40''s. I am willing to do restoration on these classics, I know this will be ongoing. Any suggestions on other classic plastic designs. I know the Bermuda 40 but I don''t want to pay the premium price for one.

See ad 13833 for my Cal 43. Not much work to do though. She has circumnavigated and has + or - 100000 miles under her keel! Plus aint she pretty!

That C50 is a big boat. One of the guys I grew up with has sailed one all over the world in the last 20 yrs. Columbia also has the C40 and C39 bubble deck models that look like the C50.

Classic glass production boats:
Columbia 38'' (VERY similar to the B40)
Cals 40'' & 48''
Alden Challenger 38''
Notheast 38''
Pearson 44'' Countess (flush deck with house)
Pearson 40'' Bounty II (glass version of wood Bounty)
Cascade 42''(some are finished from bare hull)
Morgan 40'' "Cruising Ketch" (B40ish hull)
Chris Craft 42'' Comanche

We went transatlantic on an Ohlson 38. Very pretty with the teak cabin sides, nice sheer, and MUCH better performance than some that have been mentioned. Not too big to handle with a small crew, and less expensive to maintain as well.

Douggie- If you are looking for an offshore yacht that is very capable in the fifty foot range, you may want to look at the Amel Super Maramu. It may not be the prettiest girl at the dance, but what a fantastic and reliable boat. There are a few Amels lying in Annapolis and a friend of mine is selling his.
