Craig,

There's an absolutely beautiful older Pearson 36 on eBay. Currently at $18K, these go for around $40-45K I think, but this one appears to be in truly exceptional condition.

And, it certainly has sex appeal :-)

Oh.. and about the Allied Princess.

I'm not a Ketch kinda guy.... It certainly is a nice boat... (perhaps a tad too traditional for my taste...)

Here's an updated list. My next step will be to separate them into 2 groups. Those with Excellent build quality and those with Good build quality. (Relative to each other, I'm not making sweeping generalizations...ok maybe I am but work with me here...)

J Boats 34C
Sabre 34
W. Pretorien 35
W. Hood 38
C&C 36
CS 36T
Niagara 35
Morgan 38(2)
Tartan 37
Pearson 36
Express 35
Scock 35
Beneteau First 38

To categorize them on build quality (design and manufacturing), I think I'll need some help.

What's considered good hull design (with regard to construction materials)? What is considered a good core for a hull? What is considered a good core for a deck? (Keep in mind that I'm really only interested in Fiberglass boats).

What makes a quality interior? Materials? How they are attached to the hull?

I do understand that maintenance by the PO is critical, but let's leave that out of the equation and consider simply Design and Materials used when it was made.

My first very rough guess.... would put these boats from my list in the top half for Construction/design/manufacturing. I may be *WAY* off base here. If so, let me know! (in no particular order). The designs and construction from Late 70s to Mid 80s is what we're talking about. (Maybe late 80s)

W. Pretorien 35
W. Hood 38
Morgan
Niagara 35
CS 36T
Pearson 36
Tartan 37


Any thoughts would be appreciated.

THanks
Craig

I think the 20% reserve for upgrades, refitting, toys, is probably about right.

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.

I would say add the Sabre to your "better" build quality list, but I am partial, I own a Sabre 38 and she is great....

all the best

I would also consider an Ericson 35 MKIII. For the money I think they are good. Maybe not real blue water, but certainly a great coastal cruiser. Build quality probably middle of your pack.

I don't think you can pick one up for that price... but the Contest 35 or 36s might fit the bill.

Look what I found:

C36S Yachting Monthly June 2006 published its selection of the 100 best boats of the last 100 years. The Contest 36S was ranked 15 (well ahead of the highest placed Hallberg Rassy at 46). The copy Read,
“ A remarkably spacious and well-built
Pure cruiser from the mid 1980s, this flush
Decked, chunky design will battle through
Almost anything. She is many people’s ideal
Small liveaboard”.
