what boat to buy help please

Looking to purchase new boat I have a couple requirements must have standing head room in the head ( I'm 5`9" ). Stove with oven
Diesel inboard engine. Full keel ( prefer encapsulated) and under 31 feet long. Fiberglass mono hull. Also it must be blue water capable with minor upgrades. ( I'm a shipwright ) . Currently I'm on an islander 24 bahama .

Why under 31 foot, is there a requirement where you keep your boat now? The real question is what is your budget? I would have to say off the top of my head, Cape Dory, Bristol Channel Cutter. But without a budget it is kind of impossible.

Re: what boat to buy help please

Actually you are right I noticed I left the budget out of the picture looking for under 15k and as far as the 31 actually should be under 30 ft. The marina I'm in I pay for a 30 ft slip if I go more than a foot over that I have to move to a 40 ft slip and I know a boat that size is out of price range for purchase as well as annual maintance costs. I don't want a boat I know I can't afford to keep in Bristol condition

Re: what boat to buy help please

Paul , You mention BCC , I assume you mean the 28 ' , There are some BCCs' in our marina and they must go in a 35' slip . The way my marina operates , is that in a 30' slip you are allowed 34'9" . The BCC is over 37' .
Sorry newhaul , given your conditions I got nuttin .

I was going to mention a Nor'sea until I saw your budget.
Still if you look around you may be able to find one that doesn't break the budget.

If you watch Craigslist frequently enough and for enough time, eventually ANYTHING you want will present itself at the price you want.

Re: what boat to buy help please

I seem to recall Bob Perry thinking highly of the Rawson 30...

Should be a few of those around in your area, no?

Another boat I've always liked the look of is the Golden Gate 30 (also known as a Bodega 30, and a Farallon 29, I believe) I met the sailing writer Ray Jason years ago down in FL, he sails a GG 30 named AVENTURA, looked like a sweet boat to me, and one that might be within your budget...

Also I assume you were joking with me on the Mac.
