You can pick up a Catalina 380 for that price. I think it meets all your requirements. It would seem to be a med disp boat. It is based and built on the Morgan hull, not Catalina. Only the top is Catalina.

THey have discontinued the 380 in lieu of the 387. I personally prefer the 380 better. I can attest taht it will do well in storms (not gales, storms) and we even rode out a hurricane on ours (though we were at a marina... but we took a beating and 3 boats sank/tried to sink in the same conditions). You can single the boat very easy. Negatives are access into the lazarette and tankage.

Hope that helps. I know the boat well, so feel free to ask about it.

Same Problem with Height

Dear Gents,

Which of the above-mentioned yachts would be considered to be 'Offshore' capable, when it comes to strength, tankage/storage and behaviour in medium to heavy seas? It seems that my plans are very similar to Giannboy, and where I intend to sail is known for big blows etc.

I have looked at (on Yachtworld only) at yachts such as the Whitby 42, Little Harbour 38, Cape Dory 40, Pearson 424 etc. They all seem to more or less fit the bill, however headroom is rarely mentioned. That's why I glad I stumbled on this thread!

Thanks for any help or comments.

Tassie-

The Westsnails are certainly off-shore capable... The Cal 40 is, but is rather uncomfortable from what I have read in a big blow. The Whitby 42 and Tartan 37 are both pretty good solid boats, but very different in nature.

You'd be better off starting your own thread, and very clearly defining what you want the boat to do, as well as what limitations and requirements you have for the boat.

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.
