Liveaboard Room

Wondering if anyone can comment on the liveability factor between a Sabre 423 and Tartan 4100..we have concluded that these 2 make the short list for our next boat but not being on either (yet) we have no idea of the liveaboard factor (storage and roominess etc) This will be a boat to live on for 2-5 years so that is an important factor..we have decided that we are looking for the middle ground between the production boat (you know them) and the Bluewater boats ..Passport, Tayana, IP etc. We are still looking for a third boat to help make our decision and to avoid a seperate post could anyone also comment of Freedom yachts (ie the 40/40 model) for the above as well as the other information about model.

Thanks again...

Living at a dock, or on the move? Even then, it is a subjective question. I live on a 32' boat and have as much room and storage as I need, but, it may not suffice for someone else.

Thanks John..specifically we are curious which of the 2 models (Sabre 423 and Tartan 4100)has more room (headroom, overall etc) and storage. We are aware of all the other conversations regarding the models These 2 are on our list plus we are looking to add a third (something a little older) therefore the question on the Freedom 40/40...

From what I could see on yachtporn, the Sabre 426 is closer in age, LWL & draft to the Tartan 4100. The older Sabre 423 is older, shorter & deeper than the 4100.

I considered a 40/40 and 4100

but not the Sabre. The Tartan was the more impressive boat - but a lot more money. Both my wife and I had the same reaction to the Tartan. We saw it twice about a month apart. The first time we were really impressed with the boat - well-thought out design - especially if you are looking for a sort of home office - the nav station was particuarly large and comfortable. Storage should be adequate. The second time we saw the Tartan - after seeing a lot more boats in between, it did not impress us to the same extent. The Freedom just did not do it for us. We had looked at an old Freedom 40 and quite liked it and would have considered a 44 because it had the largish double we were looking for. The 40/40 just did produce a reaction for us.
