Full keel - offshore boats 32-38 ft.?

I´m looking for a boat go sailing around the world with. Shall not cost more than 70k (USD) (90k full refitted and equipped).

Can you list GOOD sailboats that are ment to be sailed around the world.

32-38 ft. is interesting. Full keel. Aft cabin would be nice (but not a must).

Regards
Andreas

Westsail, Cape Dory, Tayana, Nicholson are a few.
Why a full keel? There are many more choices in standard keel and no less seaworthy if the right boat is chosen? Example: Passport, Pearson.

Pacific seacraft 34

After four years of looking at boats, I've decided on a Pacific Seacraft 34. I plan on singlehanding mostly, so a cutter rig was a must. I want something that would comfortably take me anywhere. I'm definetly going to Bermuda, and as my job is extremely portable, maybe California or Australia. The only downside is that the boat isn't as fast as "modern" day cruiser / racer with a phrf of a little over 200, I like to race and would like to buy a boat that I could do that with, but I don't see a psc being that competitive, although it may sail a little better than its phrf in heavy air. It's not a full keel, but a long fin with a skeg hung rudder. The waterline is short for a 34 footer, about 26 feet, the displacement is calculated as half tanks,stores, and crew of four, but its still a moderatly heavy boat. They also hold their value well. Good luck. Brandon

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

A full keel is good but a modified full keel may be better as it will give you less wetted surface, be faster, and just as safe and stable. Keels 5-61/2 ft better for the ocean over shoal draft types. The longer the water line the better(faster boat). Cutter rig boats are good. Even though its a sail boat one of the most important systems aboard is the engine. Yanmar and Perkins two of the most reliable as parts available world wide...Also make sure the engine is in top condition. Good Luck.

Into several circumnavigating books, all stress searching among racing yachts for safe circumnavigating, first, because they are built to survive heavy blue water, and have the speed when necessary to get ahead of storm fronts, or to weather them if necessary. I would put a successful blue water boat ahead of keel shape, in fact have.

I would keep an open mind about the keel issue. You would get far better speed and performance (especially in light winds) from a fin keel and my understanding is that many are suitable for bluewater.

That is the boat I immediately thought of when I heard of his price range and goals.
