What is very valuable about the Mahina list is that Neal has looked at and/or heard about specific boat issues in order to decide what's on the list.

For example: At the recent boat show in Oakland, CA I got a chance to chat him up about why the Endeavour and S2 boats are specifically nixed in his list. He explained (I'm paraphrasing here) that due to poor workmanship...and... "they are lake boats" ... they were not really seaworthy enough to consider for bluewater passagemaking.

Mind you, this was a 1 minute exchange at a booth but it was interesting.

The other thing I learned based on his consulting people to find boats is that the North East USA and CA is a softer market (at the time) than the rest of US.

Alberg

Any size Whitby Alberg should be on the list.

Gentlemen,
I would like to recommend the Bowman 46 as an excellent blue water cruiser. I had the pleasure on an Atlantic crossing from the Canary Islands to Guadelope Fr. WI in this boat with a crossing time of 18.5 day trip. This Bowman was equipped as a yawl, not the best for a trade wind crossing, but with twin jibs and main, she maintained impressive boat speed.

All the Bowmans from 36-58 feet are included in the Mahina list. The dash is missing in the post here! Your 46 is definitely included Malonepa and welcome aboard.

Looking for affordable Bluewater Pocket Cruiser

Hey Y'all,
I am looking for an affordable bluewater pocket cruiser. My background is racing lasers in my youth, then sailing on pearson & catalina coastal cruisers.
Like the Flicka but I'd rather put the $ towards the cruising kitty. Going solo. Have done some shorter coastal trips to Tortugas & Bahamas.
Several folks have mentioned to me some of th English built boats, like the Corribee and others. Any input? Heard some Corribees have gone trans-atlantic. Anyone know about the seaworthiness of the Newbridge boats?
Any input welcome.
Thanks

Sorry if this question has been posed or is stupid but... In my search for a boat to make the trip from Chicago to San Diego I have become interested in the Cheoy Lee's... is there an overwhelming reason why they did not make the list? They seem to be reasonably priced and I like the look of them...

I was just checking out this old thread and I am kind of stunned that no Hans Christian models are listed. I always thought that crossing oceans was pretty much ALL they did. Am I missing something?

Mike,
I did not put the list together. I do agree w/ you about the Hans Christian models.
Additionally I would add the Discovery Yachts from Southhampton and my Passport 51.5 cc.

I've been looking over this list and what is available for sale on Yacht World for several weeks now as I lurk in the forum and learn...Very very few of the actual boat models listed are for sale it seems. I have seen several from the same ship yard but different designer...Especially being in Hawaii when it comes time for me to make my purchase my options may end up being quite limited. Taking this list into account as a starting point should I be looking at the ship yard listed first then designer or the other way around?
