Great googley-moogley ema - that's quite a list. I'm dropping this into the Salt's thread.

Westsail 32: Good reputation offshore, plentiful, good value, roomier than most 32's, perhaps a bit slow and "tankish"

Cabo Rico Tiburon 36: Salty, Gozzard-genes, poor selection

PSC Mariah 31: Similar to W32 with perhaps a bit less room but better sailing ability

PSC 34/37: Good sailing performance, good looks, a bit cramped

Baba/Ta Shing/Panda 35: Beautiful Perry design with decent sailing ability, proven offshore

Halberg-Rassy Rasmus: Funky looks, a bit dated, roomy double cabin CC

Cheoy Lee Luders 36: Salty but not a great quality rep

Allied Princess 36: good value, more plasticy than others

True North 34: rare, similar to Baba's

Fantasia 35: Perry knock-off similar to Baba's, questionable build quality

Union 35: See Fantasia 35

Cape Dory 36: Beautiful Alberg hull, a bit small inside, good sailing

Hans Christian 33t/34: Beautiful boats, great pullman interior layout (2 cabins) with the 33t

Fuji 32/35/40: Gozzard-ish looking, quality rep?

Shannon 38: pricey but well-made

Pan Oceanic 36: Yet another Perry double-ender

Tayana 37: Classic Perry double-ender

Hardin Sea Wolf 41/CT 41/Island Trader 41/Yankee Clipper 41/Sea Tiger 41/Transworld 41: Big, piratey looking tanks, questionable build quality?

Niagra 35: Hinterhoeller design, unique layout

Dreadnought 32: Proven but antiquated

Vineyard Vixen 34: Rare?

Alajela/Ingrid 38: Beautiful classic, many w/ custom interiors

Island Trader 37: Roomy, offshore capable?

Islander Freeport 41: Lots of room and value, Perry design CC/deck saloon-ish

Mariner 32/40: Good value, proven offshore


If I had to pick just one of the above, with price not being an object, I'd go with the HC 33t. I love the looks, private cabins, shower, Pullman berth, full keel and canoe stern.

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.

Good suggestions, SD. The Southern Cross 35/39 are an oversite on my part. They make my list. The Alberg 37 (and 35) should also probably be on my personal "favorites" list. However, I find their age (1960's) and cramped interior as detractors, though my first love as a sailboat was a Triton.

I wasn't aware that the CS36 was a bluewater boat. They're a bit plain and non-salty for my taste, but may be worth a look for the OP.

Hmm...maybe plain is the wrong wording. My taste in dream boats is mostly salty, teaky and double-ended.

kwaltersmi, you seem like a sincere person and a lot of the posts reference a lot of good boats but really, with an itinerary going around Cape Horn you can't be serious. If that is a criteria, none of these boats fit it. If your plans are to go island hopping to the Bahamas down to the Virgins most all of the boats are good choices.

Otherwise your offshore trips require a lot more boat. Small kids might have a hard time when you get caught out which undoubtedly you will. Best suggestion is to try to get a crew position in the Caribbean 1500 rally held every November.Make the trip and then decide what your needs are. My bet is that your boat choice will be a lot different. Offshore Passage Opportunities – Volunteer Crew

Try to find a 35-39 foot Amel. Built in France and renowned for being well thought out world class cruisers. Hard to find in the states and styling is unique but hardly salty. A month in the tropics and you won't want to maintain the teak of a salty looking boat.

Sanduckysailor - I am NOT the original poster/starter of this thread and have no intentions of sailing around Cape Horn. 3Reefs started the thread and he/she is the one with plans for Cape Horn. I can see how you might infere that I'm the one asking about boats for the Horn, but if you read from the beginning of the thread it should all make sense.
