No V-Berths

I am looking for a 37-45 foot sailboat that has either a center line or pullman master berth. That is a non negotiable for the admiral. The budget is 80k for a sail away boat. I would like to sail it trans pacific in a few years so a decent resale value in Australia would be a plus. I am 6'4" and being able to stand up close to straight would also be good. The current boat is a pearson 365 and we are happy with everything except the size.

On the new list are

Kelly Peterson 44
Whitby 42
Pearson 422 & 44
Tayana Vancouver 42
Island Packet 38

Anything else?

An early Hunter Passage 42. The SWMBO will love the aft cabin with ensuite.

But it is a Hunter so you would have to put up with some s*** and derision.

Unless the prices have changed ... a lot, you're not likely to get any of those for $80K in sail-away shape. Not to rain on your parade, that's just the reality. I say your best bet is one of the Pearsons.

Ontario 32 - Aria

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
