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

Any recommendations for blue water designs that have 70+gallon fresh water tanks installed as an integral part of the regular specs for a 28-32 foot yacht design?

Does such a thing exist?

I read the average water capacity in permanently installed water tanks was 105 gallons (in Jimmy Cornell's' ARC 87 Equip Survey in his World Cr Survey book).

Were these permanent tanks in the Cornell survey most likely only installed later?

Here you have one:

Baba 30 Review : Bluewaterboats.org

Only very high displacement full keel slow sailboats will have that tankage.

Try to search here among the full keelers:

I don't think many of the ARC boats are in the smaller size range. All it takes is a few 50+ footers with large tankage to push the average up quite a bit as well.

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

28-32 feet would actually be prohibited from many open water races as "too small". Start thinking 36' and you'll find more tankage, more displacement, more provisioning for longer trips with bigger crews.

If you consider a typical 28-32' boat is meant for a crew of four and long weekends, more so than going offshore alone for a week...70 gallons of water is some five to six hundred pounds of water, which is already equal to the crew weight!!

Speak for yourself, scrawny! Only if I sailed with a crew of 10 year olds.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Slightly larger than your 32' max but our old girl , Van de Stadt 34, carried just a smidge under 70 gallons in permanent tanks.

Our Crealock 31 carries 65 gallons in two tanks plus 5 gallons in the hot water tank. There is gobs of space available to add more tankage if someone needed it.

My Cal 33-2 has 70 gallons total in two tanks. Most smaller boats will be more in the 20 to 50 gallon range.
