k1vsk will become famous soon enough
rather than the typical answer, I'll offer this one -
the best boat is almost invariably the one with the most experienced crew

Funny! I agree, nothing like an experienced crew!

I guess I should state it this way. In the Pacific, San Diego to be exact. What do people like, for the conditions out here? What are people experience with different boats. Do you prefer a Ketch, Sloop...maybe a rowboat (only kidding).

This just a generic response I'm looking for. Maybe people think a 34' is better. Maybe not?

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.

Big K forgive the others but they get these vague questions about what is the best blue water boat all the time. Most who ask are dreamers with no chance of ever reaching their dream or at least a little naive about what they actually want to do. There is nothing wrong with the dream but there needs to be a lot of work to make it a reality. This is a great place to begin that research but read some of the past posts and you will surely find that there is no correct answer besides a good crew. Don't let our initial sarcasm of your question scare you away. This is a great resource and most folks are very generous with their time, humor and knowledge. Check out the Mahina Expdition it will give you a way to understand what you asked and begin answering the questions that need answering to find what you really need. Cheers. Rat

Damn...so much beating around the bush. My opinion is for a cost no object new boat in the 42 foot range for fast and safe cruising and impeccable fit and finish...Halberg-Rassey 43.

It will set you back around $800k+ but what the hell...you only live once and they hold their value better than real estate!

Come on guys...pick ONE boat for sailing around the world in the 42 foot range that you would buy if $$ were no limitation.

I rarely even look in this price range because even if I had 800 K to spare I wouldn't spend it on my boat but since we are dreaming. Maybe the Cherubini 44 (LOD). she sure is pretty and would even help our sad U.S. economy. Cherubini 44 sail boat - Overview
