Out of all the CC available in 32 to 38 I would say the best looking is the O'Day 37, it just seems better proportioned than the others, not so top heavy. Big negative, it has no access from inside.

Simon...I agree about the lines of the O'day37. The difference is that there is no walkthrough from front to rear cabin...you have to go up in the cockpit. A walkthrough on that size boat requires headroom that raises the profile of the boat. Not fun when it is raining...but a full cockpit enclosure can help.

Cam,
It is one of the boats I am considering for myself, but I also like the rear cockpit for easier single handling, O”Day 37 and Islander 36 ( at this stage, subject to change)

Simon, have you looked at the Morgan? Not sure if this link will work:

YachtWorld.com Boats and Yachts for Sale

but if you go to yachtworld.com and do a search for Morgans you'll find that many 36' and up have what you are looking for.

Simon...I once owned the O'day32CC which is basically the same boat in terms of layout but a smaller aft cabin. We had small kids at the time and did the cockpit enclosure for all weather access...but having an aft cabin was a blessing!! (G) It was a fine boat for the Chesapeake and we did 2 week long family vacations on her. All in all she was an excellent boat for those purposes. She was bough by a guy who used her for live-aboard at a dock and wanted the space. In the 37 foot range, I don't think anything other than an IrwinCC has comparable space down below.
For sailing and build qualities though...I'd have to give the nod to the Islander as they are excellent boats. All depends on what your priorities are at the moment.

Man, you guys are given me a ton of ideas...and I am spending more time on Yachtworld.com than with the Mrs. (she knows Im on a mission though )

I know we said that we were looking for a larger boat but so far I am very impressed with the S2 30ft 9.2c.

Simon, thanks for the info on the Oday...I agree with the Big negative, of having no access from inside...though it is a very nice boat...

Still looking --- keep the models coming!

No real priorities, I will be single again soon and when it’s all sorted I’m coming to the States having no ties. I can spend as much time as I need to find the right boat, in the @$45K range spend @$10K setting it up and head home by the milk run .

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.

Bill,

Unless you really need a CC don't tie yourself down each design has its pros and cons but at the end of the day you will know as soon as you stand on the boat meant for you. I always wanted a Catalina c38 until my eyes were opened by some very knowledgeable people here.

I know that question was rhetorical "HAND HELD TELESCOPIC PRESSURE SHOWER HEAD"
