Actually, that's funny. I emailed my wife about that one only this afternoon and talked about stringing hammocks between those shiny poles

Have you found any boats that met your basic accommodation criteria but failed on price or gear?
If so what are they?
It would help us know what you like.

Hmmmm

Tartan 37 and Morgan 382 are close but seem a berth short.
Tartan 41 is bit too big
C&C/Cals seem to often have lots of single berth layouts, but seem are to find equipped.
A double aft cabin would work, but can't seem to find any of those that are passable offshore

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

Some Beneteau 35's & 36's (probably 38's & 40's) have a vee birth and twin aft cabins. But you'll have to almost double your budget for one in excellent shape.

Anyone know this boat? Palmer Johnson New York 40. Meets alot of my needs. The converted P&S lockers are pilot berths and could be converted back I think.

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

Interesting.. I'm sure you could reinstate those pilot berths.. That's a VERY tall companionway ladder and the access to it on deck is rather exposed- I'd be a bit concerned about that for the young 'uns. It will interesting in and out in a seaway.

Plenty of gear.. This is a big, brawny boat and I'm not certain that it will fall into the "family cruiser" category. It's very similar to our previous boat (Choate 40).. We sailed it mostly with a pretty big crew. Lots of muscle required but this one is better equipped...

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

I think this would be a grounder, if not for the sleeps 5, no settee, requirement. Although, it makes me recall sleeping on the Bavaria 37 last month. Very tight, although, I'm a big guy.

I would ask who the 5 will be. Kids? Small adults? Could the 5 requirement be a fallacy? Just because you have the berths, does not mean that anyone will be willing to sleep in them. We have one pilot berth like that and most larger adults will not share our v-berth comfortably.
