You sure are correct on the Camper & Nicholson. We bought our 58 after my cousin sailed his 58 twice around and loved it as a blue-water cruiser. He ran into several others on his way and a fleet of three crossed the S Pacific together. They made 12 to 16 in the trades on the crossing.
We discovered the "blister problem" in the first restoration season and put a new bottom on in year two. I hand ground several hundred thousand small gel coat pops and dug out 8 big blisters of dinner plate size. I should have just peeled it or had the sand blaster wipe it clean. Its a really nice boat with fantastic interior details. You have to appreciate the classic lines. Ours rode out GRACE years ago at sea. I have a copy of the article written in a sailing publication. The boat was RASCAL at the time and we have 'before and after photos' from the time. Easy to see the improvements made following that ride.

Can't resist throwing my oar into this discussion - getting your view point to add my new boat to your list. Our first year with the boat, I'll represent other Celestial 48 owners with far more "Blue Water" experience with the boat than I do. After a long look around, viewing many other blue water boats, consulting the Neale's list and recommendations, I bought the boat based on owner experience and my requirements for long term living and traveling.

The Celestial 48 (1986) - A relatively unknown cruiser to many, billed as a blue water cruiser, built in China, operated and designed by Americans. Many of the and its owners still crusing today with 1,000's of passage making miles. Ours is the Cutter config.

Follow the links for more info if your interested.

Mahina have updated their list, it now shows Last Update Jan 2010.
Unfortunately they got wise and made it an IMAGE, so good luck keeping track of what was updated.

Would you consider a Formosa 41 as a bluewater cruiser?
