Those mentioned are mostly pocket cruisers, not micro cruisers.

Here's one I call the "ship in a bottle" because it's so tiny, a Victoria 18. My wife and I have actually been able to sleep on it for up to a week. We are both tough! Once you crawl in, you need to come back out just to change your mind.

While over 22 feet, my Stiletto did make the cut ...

... in the book "Cruising on a Micro Budget." At 1200 pounds, it is light as most entries, and the accommodations are more limited than most:
Sail Delmarva: The Stiletto 27 - You Can Actually Sleep in That?

And I did some multi-day cruising with my Prindle 16, but I was younger and that was camping!

(when asked how he reached the starting holds on a difficult rock climbing problem that clearly favored taller climbers - he was perhaps 5'5")

"Well, I just climb up to them."

by Joe Brown, English rock climber

have you folks ever looked at the stevenson's projects "the weekender", or "the vacationer" homebuilts? they remind me alot of what this thread is all about. i have a W.D. Schock Santana 525, which at 24.5 feet it feel it is a mini cruiser. i am considering getting her little brother the Santana 20. so now, with these neat little cruisers, where would you take one of these? the bahamas? the carribean? i have always said, water is water. any boat can go anywhere as long as you sail her within the environmental envelope of conditions she was built for.
who has taken their little boat where?

yes they do! It's the Rhode's design: beautiful sheer, low freeboard, just classic lines....I like what was done with the outboard....the gears in my head are spinning with a sudden new winter project........

Some of the others here are absolute beauts as well!!!! The Tanzer is a knockout and so is the "cranky" and the Edel>>>>

It is true. Look at Serge Testa's Acroch Australis, Sven Irvind's boats and his incredible trawels, Evgeny Gvozdew's circumnavigation. But i think they made these big trips with very small boats o for establish the record o because of lack of money and great desire of travel the sea. It is not for everybody.

Cape Dory 22

Not the smallest in the Cape Dory line, but in my mind is the prettiest.

IGORK thanks for posting that.

From the website linked above;

This guy made his boat by hanging it off the side of his apartmentís balcony.
Everything is possible.

I want to live in that town. I'd catch h@ll just for parking my boat in my driveway let alone build one while hanging it off my balcony.
