Be sure to check out John Neal''s list at http://www.mahina.com/cruise.html .

He''s a bit of a Hallberg-Rassy bigot, but has insights on many other boats

Bluewater Cruisers

I would add many of the Cheoy Lee models which are sailing all over the globe. Lots of bight work to maintain though. Easy boats to single hand or for a couple when rigged properly. I have weathered one hurricane and several gales in mine--none the worse for the experience. (the boat that is!)

How about the Columbias. My C36 was originally advertised as a ''blue water cruiser/racer."

Islander

What about the Islander Bahama 24? This boat has been sailed around some pretty tough seas in the pacific.

3400lb. Displacement 1700lb. Ballast. That's 2.47 to 1 ballast ratio.
24' loa, 20.00 LWL
Full Keel, skeg rudder.

Seems seaworthy to me! And it's proven. (Read Dove)

Sailormon6 will become famous soon enough
I think you can add the C&C Landfall series. Their keel is a little longer and heavier than the racing version, and they have a shorter rig.

KindOfBlue is on a distinguished road
There is a guy named John down in Texas who frequently sails his Bristol 29.9 in bluewater offshore conditions and loves how well his boat handles them. Others on this site have said that there are better bluewater cruisers in the 30 foot range. Either way, it's a boat to put on the list of 30' bluewater boats to consider.
