A double aft cabin would work, but can't seem to find any of those that are passable offshore
OK I see the problem now. I have exactly the same problem.
My perfect boat would be 27' with two cabins. Electric drive with 1,000 mile range. Capable of 10+ knots. For pirate evasion I would like to dive to 30 meters for at least and hour.

Your requirements are a little less difficult than mine. We will both probably have to compromise a little.

Seriously though if you come up with any models that would make you happy configuration wise and listed those there is a good chance a sailnetter may know of someone with your boat.

Good luck.
At least YOU have chance.

If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

The PJ40 is a semi flush deck, like the Albin Nimbus. I'd be concerned about letting the kids up and down the hatch in bad weather, more so than using a conventional companionway directly into a cockpit.

And no matter how you slice it the kids will be stowed in those tiny berths.

Then there's the gally picture, the sinks appear to be about 6" from front to back, maybe that's the photo angle, maybe they really are just big enough for a single stack of dinner plates.

Three kids, maybe two heads should be on the list?

This is something I have experience with. You need to size your boat for a 16, 14 and 12 year old, which will be upon you in the blink of an eye. After 16, you'll start having a tough time getting them all to come at once anyway.

The point is, you are undoubtedly stuck with someone on a settee, even if you have quarter berths that claim to sleep two. Is a 14 and 12 year old going to share a cramped berth? Not in my experience.

You would really expand your horizon to accept the settee situation.

Pearson 36 and 37 seem to have three single berths - not seen many of them though....

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

This is an O'Day 39' tri-cabin. It has port and starboard aft cabins big enough for 2 people in each cabin. I sailed on one of these back in the 1980's from Lauderdale to Massachusetts (offshore).

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

An "extension berth" like the P36 means you pull out the settee base to make up a wider berth. If you don't want to use settee berths, the thought of using one and having to pull it out and extend it might not be much more attractive. And of course, an upper pilot that can only be accessed over the settee (extension berth) has some drawbacks too.

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

I thought the P36 had two pilot berths?

Re: Boat Finders Fee!

The P36 diagram from your URL shows one pilot berth, starboard side above the extension berth. Portside it shows shelves.

I haven't been on a P36 in a very long time but I don't remember it as being a very wide boat, it impressed me more as a good sea boat, i.e. where you can't be thrown across any wide open spaces. Which is not to say there may not be different interiors. With three kids going into their teens and five souls onboard, what I remember would be a "snug" boat.
