I think an argument can be made for a Tartan 27 in light of the other small boats included - Triton, Dana, Albin Vega, etc. Several have crossed oceans, they are faster than many, solidly built, ...

The Mahina list has CS 36, but looking around on this forum there's a couple times people have only mentioned the Traditional. Are the differences between the Traditional and the Merlin that great that they would make the Merlin unsuitable for ocean crossing?

The list got updated, but looking at it quickly, very little changed. Southerly and Vancouver, both built by Northshore marine were finally included.
To my surprise, Sabre went from "great" to "modest" quality, I wonder what caused that shift in opinion!? The Tartan issues however, remain ignored, hmm...

Kudos for Passage 450 by Hunter

One of the best values for the money are the Hunter Passage 450 made from 1999-2002. These are 28000 lb displacement vessels strung with Kevlar and are very seaworthy for a 45 foot vessel. The ride is incredible and very reassuring in heavy seas.

It is interesting - where some boats on the list, I wouldn't have considered when looking for our current boat.

With 2 years experience with our 1986 Celestial 48', I think it's a worthy candidate for the blue water list based on comfort, strength, quality construction, sailing characteristic & performance, safety and security.

Dear Mr. Grumpy

Check out the New TARTAN 4700 or the 4400. There is a nice 4400 in Los Angeles area. Blue Pacific Boating is the new TARTAN/C&C Dealership there.
Cheers!
