Question CC boats I should be considering would be...

I want a CC boat bad. As I noted in my intro forum post, this will probably no thappen for a few years, but one can be patient and do plenty of research along the way. So... I could use a little help.

I like the design and general set-up of center console boats. SinceI expect any sailing would be two or three people, having two nice canins at opposite end appeals to me. I also like the idea of a double ender, though that is not a necessity, and I NEED a sailboat that will take my 6'3" height in stride.

New is out of the question, used is what I am looking at since it just makes more sense. Size of 38-44 feet sounds about right. So far my eyes have been drawn to:
Passport 40 (which I know is not a CC)


Miller 44 CC


Westsail 42
So what else should I be looking at? Especially a CC boat. Assume a budget of $125-150k for a really good boat requiring minimal work, or hald as much and I put in lots of new stuff where needed.

Many thanks for help in my early research efforts!

Hello,

I believe the original poster is referring to a Center Cockpit boat, not a C&C boat.

Have you checked out the Hunters, ex. the Passage 42? You'll think you died and went to heaven when you see that aft cabin.....and the CC50 is like a house inside. Just watch that first step down to the dock, it's a doozie.

Double-ended or canoe-sterned center-cockpit boats are not too common. Besides that Westsail 42 (or is it 43?), another is the Corbin 39. Most of the Corbins were aft cockpit with pilothouse (like this one), but there are a few center-c versions around.

Other center cockpit boats possibly in your price/size range are the Whitby 42, and the C&C Landfall 43.

A couple others possibly worth exploring are the Peterson 44 and Peterson 46. The 44s especially are getting on in years. Also, there are other Peterson designs of this length (44/46') so don't confuse them with these center-cockpit ketches from the mid-70's to late-80's.

If you want to look at some newer boats, Beneteau has a 36CC, the 42CC, and the 44 center cockpit. The 36 would be in your price range, but the larger boats -- maybe not.

Others will have more recommendations, I'm sure.

Oh yeah, thought of another. Amel has made many models over the years. They are pricey, but some of the older 46 Maramu and 48 Maramu ketches are now getting down closer to your price range. There was also an earlier model, called the 46 Santorini, I think. Maybe in a few years?
