Re: We have fallen for the Cheoy Lee 40 Offshore
Thanks for the Tartan! Just looked and it reminds me of a Swan that we kinda fell for with an aft setup that was similar. Very pretty boat for sure and it would work I think. Does that rear cabin close though? Looks like it is open like a J boat or the Swan vs being a separate cabin in the Cheoy Lee.
EDIT: To explain our thinking on this berth thing for the kiddos. They go to bed way before us, and even in our Mac they can go to sleep in the V berth and we hang out and stay up and sleep on the dinette. We want to make sure that no matter how much we love a boat while sailing or just looking at it, that we at least keep the same accommodations or improve them a bit. Now a big concern for my wife and I is being able to keep an eye on the companion way so to speak. This is where the Swan fell short for example. Rear births were nice, but open, while the fore cabin was small, high up, and far from the companionway. Once again the Offshore with it's odd offset companionway solves an issue for us.
