I'd combine my love of sailing and flying.. something like this, but with a keel instead of a planing hull, and a bermuda rig.. Forward cockpit, with flybridge center cockpit for when I want to be in the elements..

Come to think of it, other than obvious windage issues, I wonder how something like that would sail

Same floor plan I have, but about 5' longer, and a shower in the head area. Boas that fit the bill include an X34/37, jeanneau sunfast 35/37, J109 potentially the new 97 or 111, C&C 110/115, King 35, Archambault 35, Aerodyne 35..................no full keel old shoes!

Have to be a Farr 40 for me. And a 49er on shore for racing. Perfect.

I don't blame you for saying that. Is there any more info on your boat posted anywhere like pics or specs or anything? From what I can see in the little picture when you post, it looks really nice.

My extended family has a 48' S&S that is essentially a stretched NY32 which I absolutely love.

Mine is one that
  • has a decent turn of speed
  • has accommodaton that is comfortable and spacious
  • is geared to take care of normal daily life (minimal sacrifice)
  • is easy enough to sail on my own and
  • is strong enough to protect people on board when the chips are really down.
I have that boat now (Morgan 44 CC Sloop) and the only reason I would change it is if I got financially lucky enough to buy one very similar but new.

Ours is somewhat similar: LOA 48, LWL 34 Beam 12 Draft 8. Weighs in in the mid 30's loaded.

Here's some pics: Feel free to PM me if you'd like more specifics.

FiveFootItis

my boats are actually perfect for us right now: a Cal 2-46 and a SJ30 ...

I am surprised that no one said : 'a similar boat to what I have but about 5 feet longer and few more options'...that is what I see most of my friend doing lately.

I went from a 14 foot dingy to a 24 foot c&c to the 30 foot SJ (two case of fiveitis)
