I am interested in a list of blue water cruising boats in the 30 to 38 ft range.
As I understand it, people usually classify
cruiser as either coastal (Hunter, Catalina
or Beneteau) or as blue water (ie Caliber).
So, what are the blue water makes and models?

Don''t rule out Morgan 33'' Out Islanders.

But if you are really interested in a Catalina 30 at really good price with lots of equipment on it....email me..I''ll send you a phone number of the owner. The people who have the slip one boat away from me have one for sale. Its older but it surveyed out well and is loaded with electronics and the price is very enticing.

I think we can add Gozzard to the list.

Where to C&C and Tartan fall?

Add Cabo Rico to that list also - and Rob Homan - where is that Catalina 30 located, if it''s left coast, I may be interested.

Check out a Cascade 36 from Yacht constructors of Portland Oregon. They are comfortable, a joy to sail and built to last.
The have a fin [cast iron]keel and spade rudder. hand laid glass construction. Many new or used boats see 48 Degrees North they often have listing.

C&C and Tartan are not of the bombproof quality as some of the boats listed, such as Pacific Seacraft, Cabo Rico, Tayana, Passport, etc. but are more suited for long-distance cruising than Catalina, Hunter, Beneteau. Some friends are considering the Tartan 3700 as their first choice (they are looking at a number of boats) for cruising mainly in Mexico. They want a boat that is constructed better than a coastal cruiser but don''t want or need a true go-anywhere boat.

Thanks for the info, I''m still updating
my list. Took a look at a few Cascades
on the web. Nice 36ft, but the 37ft is
not very thrilling.
