Re: Updated Offshore Cruising Boat List - January 2008

If the Fuji 32 is included, the the Fuji 35 and Fuji 45 should also be on the list. Granted there are not many 45's available, but that didn't seem to be a criteria. We are cruising one, and know at least 3 other Fuji 45's bluewater cruising.

Re: Updated Offshore Cruising Boat List - January 2008

The following boats should be added which are all variations on the Whitby 42 designed by Ted Brewer:

Brewer 12.8 - Redesign of Whitby 42 by Ted Brewer and built by Fort Myers Yacht & Shipbuilding. Changes included Cutter rig instead of ketch rig, combination keel centerboard instead of full keel, slightly different dimensions. These boats were commissioned by a group from the Knickerbocker Yacht Club, LI for the express purpose of sailing in the Bahamas.

Whitby 55 - This was an extended version of the Whitby 42 built by Whitby Boatworks, ON, CAN. There were only a small number built.

Brewer 42 - This boat is listed as CAN in your list. This is incorrect, it was built in the US by Ft. Meyers but is the same design as the Whitby 42 built by Whitby Boatworks.

Brewer 44 - This is another redesign of the Whitby 42 by Ted Brewer and built by Ft. Meyers, not Whitby Boatworks. 2' were added to the LOA which incorporated a sugar scoop transom, a fin keel with skeg-hung rudder, and some boats were rigged as Cutters while others as ketches. The additional 2' allowed for a larger owner's aft stateroom.

What, no Kelly-Peterson 46? Does that mean I have to go out and sell mine now?

Re: Updated Offshore Cruising Boat List - January 2008

This list has again been updated on the Mahina Site.( Jan 2013).

Jimandtricia- Not sure what he has against your boat, the KP44 is also not on the list but has been acknowledged in this thread( and personally endorsed by our own Jeff H as being a good choice for cruising).

I know of of two KP-46's doing some pretty successful bluewater cruising.

An updated list, as of January 2013, of Mahina.com's "Boats to Consider for Offshore Cruising" can be found on the site about 2/3 the way down their page titled "Selecting a Boat for Offshore Cruising".
