Try a sail in Schock built Harbor 25. It is a very sea worthy vessel. It fits your price point. It is a exquisitely crafted day sailor with a dry and comfy cockpit able to handle heavy air and moderate seas with ease.


You could also try the Harbor 30, but it is a bit above your price point.

What do you need in a daysailor ?

I only read the thread to see what someone was define as large. perfect or affordable as they relate to a boat.

The funny thing is I already have 1 so am confused.

I second the Harbor 25 - outstanding day sailer! Fast, and designed for single handing. Looks great too.

I know a lot of sailors (inlcuding myself) that sail or would sail with a boat designed for a use like the Sabre Spirit, unfortunatley the can't afford it and the new production boat manufacturer (i.e., Catalina, Jeaneau etc) have not produced this type of product.
Check out Lackeysailing.com. Tim Lackey built a big daysailor from an old Triton and ended up with a gorgeous boat for way less than anything remotely comparable you could buy new.

Someone like Lackey or Charliecobra could do the same thing to a neglected and dirt cheap 35'er for a pretty reasonable sum I think - certainly well within your $150K - depending on how fancy you wanted it of course.

First, you're right, it's next to impossible to find a new 36 foot daysailer for less than $150k, let alone any new production 36 footer (cruiser, racer, etc.).

However, you might find a slightly used Summit Yachts md35

If you're willing to consider a bit smaller boat, look at the beautiful ~$100k CW Hood 32

Or how about the Alerion 33?

Try this little screamer for $8k - yes, you heard me right. Add in shipping, full set of new laminates and everythign else you'd be after - I'd bet you'd still come in under budget, and whoop asses round the cans too.



Is this the right hull form?

The Harbor 25 is too small for what I am looking for. I need it for taking people out on 3-4 hour charter sails. So the boat has to be at least 35-36 feet with a small cabin to fit a head and small galley including an icebox or refrigerator.

Now this is a very interesting concept. I like this idea.
