The Nordic 44 looks pretty good on the inside, though the one in Maine looks to have been finished off in Herreshoff style with white bulkheads. This one has plenty of wood underneath. I wonder if the other one was owner finished?

This one is in Cali, but you could fit it out there, then head out to the Galapagos Islands, before coming back! So does the one who finds your new boat get your old one as a bonus? Seriously if you put yours up for sale, and I have not found a boat by then, give me a buzz.

I have always thought if I won the Lotto I would look at a new Passport LRC. They seem to be really nice boats and I have never heard of anyone who had one say they were slow.
I saw the one in Ca...and also saw the one in the Hershoff interior. The others eem to have the wood I am looking for. I also looked at a 40 Mmordic here in Maryland last year. They are nice boats.

I know when the time comes I will have a teary day parting with my C&C35MKIII. Shes been a good boat to us and we have sailed her a lot of miles, but not too hard. She has a great combo of speed and comfort for a couple for sure. I know we could take her south on this trip, but there isnt enough weight in her for where I want to go.

I need to find my next boat before I put her up for sale and have been seriously looking for about 1 year now.

I like the Hylas and the Valiant. The Calkiber is a good boat too, but it didnt seem as roomy as most 40s. It is super well made though.

Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

I sold some gear to a gentleman on his 2nd time around the world in a C&C 39. He had started in a full keel Alberg 35, but decided it was too slowwwwwww. He loved the 39

Back in the day, the boats we worked on that seemed meant to be out there were Valiant 40s, various Pacific Seacrafts, the Caliber 40, and Island Packets (as long as you weren't in a hurry to get anyplace).

Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

I'm thinking about the perfect answer.

However, why sweat the protected rudder for predominantly coastal cruising? Not sure if half skeg, full skeg, etc qualifies. You could add a monitor wind vane with emergency rudder to your re-fit and reopen the faster spade rudder market. Just a thought.

Yes Ive thought about that. Just the spade rudders are so exposed and all it would take is one coral head andit gets broken. I have one now and love the performace you get out of it, but it only sits about 8 inches shortertha the keel if that.

Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

Given your considerations I'd recommend either a Passport or a Gran Soleil. I've spent a fair amount of time on offshore trips on variations of both. The Passport will get you around the world with a bit less "performance" than your C&C and the Gran Soleil will give you a bit more performance than the Passport. Good boats both.

Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

They are a little hard to find this side of the pond ... but have you looked at all at the Moody line? They sail pretty well, are built stout, and have eye-popping interior room. Hands down the best heads in the game, & true galley kitchens you can cook in at sea. Here's the layout of the Moody 36:



And here is the 38CC. You can find them in good shape for $150k. Average to above average sailers.

ETA: Looks like they came standard with Volvos, tho. Have to look for one that has been repowered, or budget for a nice Yanmar.

Re: Last Boat- Time to look at the end game Cruising Boat

I looked to see what Cabo Ricos were on the market.. I've always admired them.

Came across this one...probably not what you're looking for...just wondered if you had considered Cabo Ricos
