Just to contribute to the discussion,

Since your exploring this as a business did you consider that your would be passengers might be put off by "your" version of what a ideal boat should be compared to a nicely fitted coastal cruiser. Example; hour 2 of your out and back 4 hour cruise when the thunderstorm starts pelting your passengers and thier kid and there's no comfy spot to get out of the weather.

Yep, well, give or take a little - it was advertised for £5000 in SE England somewhere. It's a strip built thing, early 90's vintage possibly - google Corby 35 and you should find it. It was advertised on Ebay (uk) a few months ago. Even if it required a total refit, it would still appear to be a bargain.

Hey, BandAid...re: Searay

I was pointing out how paltry the sailboat market is as compared to the powerboat market. If you take an already paltry market, and further refine it, you eventually, reach a point where sales reach the zero mark.

There's simply not a large enough group of people interested in the concept of a 36' daysailor with a spartan interior.

Without a doubt. At the same time I don't need all the systems design as a coastal cruiser.

Ain't it though. Imagine something along those lines done to, say, an abandoned Pearson/Alberg 35. If you cut away the cabintop and rebuilt it along the philosophy of the Spirit of Tradition boats or the Alerions, you'd really have something special. If you found a derelict that had a useable rig you'd have a really cheap start and, even if having a pro do it, you could keep the costs pretty reasonable. Think how easy it would be for them to put a simple, new interior in it with that big hole in the deck.

ok--Now I am finding thiis concept really interesting. What do you think it would cost to do something like this?

Reminds me of a Charlie Cobra idea with SeaSmoke. That would be cool too!

Start with a 40' Beauty, heck you can pick it up for $3k!

Yeah I would go with a fiberglass hull. Wood is way too much work.
