Sailboats with 2 cabins...a question.

Hi all!

I was wondering if you all can help me.

I was wondering what types of sailboats (make/model) have both v-berths and aft cabins (sort of like this one YachtWorld.com Boats and Yachts for Sale)

Thanks in advance!
Bill

The boats that have two cabins are usually a bit larger than the ones with only one. It would help if you said what you are looking to do with the boat—sailing area, type of sailing, number of people, etc—as well as what your budget is... otherwise, some of the suggestions are going to be less than useful.

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.

Dude, that's a big question. You're really gonna have to narrow it down a tad. But you can assume that all center cockpit boats will have an aft cabin.

A lot of aft cockpit boats, bigger ones anyways, can have an aft cabin as well. Some larger boats even have two aft cabins.

Ian -- Re: the Hardin -- I know a fellow with one. Gorgeous boat above and below. Speedwise, I think driftwood is faster. But with accommodations like that, who cares?

Otherwise, I think a general size range would be helpful. Even my Pearson 33 has a v-berth and an aft "cabin" (and ditto for my P-27 before this one) if you aren't too picky about how large a cabin has to be.

Any center cockpit boat will give you two or more sleeping cabins. Only quite large aft cockpit boats will give you similar cabin arrangements. If you are interested in center cockpit boats...give us your cruising plans...price range and acceptable boat age/size range and perhaps we can make a few specific suggestions.

Hey, thanks to all you guys!

I'm really looking for something around 36 to 45 feet (no bigger or smaller), coastal cruising, possible live-aboard (someday) price range from 0 - $60,000

My wife and I were looking and liked the idea of a two cabin boat for friends and family to stay on with us for some trips... you know...

I really would appreciate the suggestions!

Bill-

One of the best statements I've ever heard about boats is that the primary use is primary. Unless you really need to have two cabins, it may make more sense to have one. The aft cabin on many boats isn't all that usable, and unless you intend on having family or friends on-board almost constantly, rather than just occassionally... it might not make sense to spend the extra money a good two cabin boat will cost. Just food for thought.

Look at Irwins, S2's, Pearson 422, Beneteau 40/42/44CC, Morgans, O'day37. There may be a few others...but that will give you a start. See some pix on Yachtworld.com
