That would make you a pretty big A$$...

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.

The Luder's 16 has a cuddy cabin big enough to sleep a couple adults overnight:

Quote:
"The L16 is sloop-rigged sailboat. The "L" is for the designer, A. E. (Bill) Luders, and the sixteen represents the waterline length of the boat. L16s are twenty-six feet long overall and have a working sail area of 207 square feet. The boats have a small cuddy cabin with sitting headroom and, optionally, two berths for spartan overnight accommodations."

Re: What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?

I had my Guppy13 out last week, and had great wind all day. When I got the boat there were no sails. I was able to take an old set I had, and put some hanks on the main, to use as the head sail. Also sew some slugs on the jib, to use it for the main! Sounds silly, But they have a very small main, and larger jib? But they worked very well. I do have a very nice spinnaker off an old O`day 14, I want to use as a drifter(should work okay?) It is my smallest cruzing sailboat, I do like the bunks(I am a bit on the big side). But is nice for no more then 2 adults overnite. Could of been a better boat for me when, I took my 4 1/2 month trip around the Baja. I had a Montgomery 10(good little boat, but this one would of made my trip much better! I was only about 50 at the time. Happy Sailing.

Re: What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?

It's not really a dinghy, but when I was younger, I knew a couple with two kids, who used to take a Cape Dory Typhoon (22 feet I think) out for weekends and sleep on it. It was a good sailing boat, and the smallest I think I could have ever theoretically cruised on (when I was younger for sure).

Re: What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?

Another non dinghy 15 with a cabin would be the Montgomery 15. A high quality boat with a cult like following.

if the OP really wants a Dinghy with a cabin, a boom tarp can be rigged on almost anything. There is a book about a guy who sailed 1500 miles up the east coast in a 14 foot dinghy. he camped, used a boom tarp and had quite an adventure! So anything is doable.

Montgomery also builds a 17.

These boats have been around for a long time so reasonably priced used boats do exist.

Re: What is the smallest dinghy with a cabin?

The previous owner of my boat and his wife had a Wayfarer first. They regularly camped out on it with a tarp for a roof.

One morning she woke up to find a large snake on the other side of the tarp right in front of her face. She then refused to sleep on any sailboat that didn't have a cabin.

He took that as permission to buy a 30 footer (and move up to a 34 a few years later).

Be interesting to know if the OP found a boat. He or she posted this about 7 years ago.
