Me too, but w/ 2 private berths?

chsjohn describes almost exactly what I'm looking for as well, but I have the additional requirement to have 2 private (e.g. closing door) berths, ideally with a large quarter/stern berth.

A lot of the older boats mentioned here have open quarter berths, which leaves zero privacy for guests out for the weekend or an extended sail with 2 couples to the Bahamas, etc.

I like the S2 11 CC, from what I've seen. Are there other boats that fit the bill? Any comments on the S2 11 CC.

Thanks!
BAtkins

Hunter 34 has twin cabins - for the others you can always install (build your own) enclosure. I think you will find that the restriction in airflow will have you tearing down walls in search of a breeze.

True privacy on a boat doesn't come cheap.

Batkins61-

You're generally not going to find two "cabins" on most boats in that size and price range. You shouldn't hijack CHSjohn's thread either.

CHSJohn-

There are quite a few boats in that budget range that would do what you require. I'd highly recommend that you reserve 15-20% of your budget for the necessary refitting, upgrading and repairing that you'll need to do when you buy the boat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I'd second the Catalina 34, even the Catalina 30 would likely fit the bill pretty well.

lsail123, The J-30 is a nice boat, sails well, decent layout. But gosh that's a heavy, tiresome helm for a novice, or have you modified your rudder?

Since the question has been answered, I'm going with the hi-jack and saying that if you want TWO real cabins in a cheap, family coastal/bay cruiser, look at the Oday 32. A CC boat with a walkover design that separates the parents in an aft cabin and put kids or guests up front in the V berth or settees.
Sailing performance and build quality are modest...but a lot of family fun can be had for not much money. There is a similar Oday 37CC with a slightly larger aft cabin for a bit more money.

I'll add the Beneteau 36CC to Cam's list...

John, the op said he has 40k to spend. that would rule out the 36 Beneteau cc . But it would be a good for for the purpose. I second the Catalina 34.
