Adding tankage is not that difficult. Buy the boat you want for reasons other than tank size and add capacity later.
Agree with all.

Note also that many boats have factory option tankage that will equal your desired gallonage, like many Ericson's in the 32 to 35 foot range -- many of those had three tanks.

My Olson came with two factory tanks holding 46 gallons total, and I replaced one with a larger tank to bring our total up to 61. With our ability to use either tank via a manifold, we add water for whatever duration we need before planning a future marina visit. With more than one tank you can add or subtract to better balance the boat for performance, too.

My Pearson 35 has 3 tanks with about 75 gallon capacity. I couldn't be happier with the way she sails with or without the tanks filled.

But I doubt the 3 tanks are all original.

I do believe they are original, they're the same construction, fill openings, vents, and appear to be glassed in at the same time.

Could have been an option. I checked Yachtworld and the majority of Pearson 35's have 40 gallons of water, one has 60, and one lists 78.

In some cases the tanks may need replacement if they are decades old. Adding a tank is not too difficult a job.

Yep, I 'm sure these are the original with the 78 gallon factorey package.

My Bristol 31.1 has the same. A 35.5 has 105 gallons.

Re: Yacht designs with 70+gal water tanks as part of regular specs?

My Columbia 40 (1965-69) has 60 gallon water listed originally....but I think it has been replaced with a bigger maybe 70+ gal new stainless steel one that is not so hidden yet under the starboard salon berth/sofa bench thingy or maybe I got alot of water capacity if there is another ...I just got the boat and don't know what I got yet really...it's on a mooring 80 miles south of me...so the few times I have visited her since I learn alot of new things about her...

In the picture you can see the tank below under the starboard sofa/bench thingy...not sure how it is anchored but it seem to be somewhat...will have to examine it sooner than later....
