This looks to be quite a spacious galley for a 38' boat.

Can anybody advise/offer opinion on best value make/models at all?

I'm starting to trawl through various classified and a couple of manufacturers seem to be dominant: Jeanneau, Moody and Beneteau

Are the above particularly good boats or just larger manufactures?

eg. you see more Fords on the road than Aston Martins but I know which I'd rather have in my garage!

Yes. But which one won't break down as much and won't deplete the boating kitty to get fixed?

but that doesn't answer my question?

are the above manufacturers particularly good boats hence their popularity or just the biggest fish in the pond?

also...

Most all of the boats I've been reading about (window shopping) all seem to have very cramped cabins even the larger end of the scale that i'm looking at 42ft boats.

Is it too much to ask (considering that for me this will be a live-aboard) to find a which has at least one spacious cabin and one smaller one rather than 3 or four small ones?

mitiempo will become famous soon enough
The Beneteau 36CC has a similar layout to the Moody you linked to forward but it has the galley in the port passageway with counters on both sides and the head, a large one, is to starboard in the passageway. Both sides offer access to the aft cabin very similar to the Moody. Most have dodgers and not the solid windscreen as in this link. 1998 Beneteau 36 CC Clipper Sail Boat For Sale - www.yachtworld.com

I live aboard and have neighbours on a Beneteau 36CC - have been aboard a few times and the layout is very good I think.

Thank you mitiempo

Lovely looking boat, a little over my chosen budget but certainly closer to what i'm looking for
