My friend says something similar about his boat, except it goes like this:

Sails SIX
Feeds FOUR
Sleeps TWO...

Drinking aboard, at least while underway, is heavily frowned upon. Alcohol reduces your night vision, makes your judgement suspect, your reflexes slower and less coordinated, and increases your risk of dehydration and seasickness.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Well, with all this talk about metal boats, were I to build in metal (I probably wouldn't- I'd stick with wood). I'd go with a cupronickel hull- There's a couple out there that seem to have been problem free.

But if new: Angelique hull, balata frames and keel, wana deck, all monel fastened. Yawl rigged with aluminum sticks- probably go a little smaller too -high 30's LOA.

The one I have just now does very nicely thank you. A New Bombay Trading Company [ Yes that is the builders name ] Explorer.

44ft Don't think I can handle anything larger in comfort.
BIGGEST shower I have ever seen on ANY boat. Even Travis would be impressed!
Draws 5.6 with the board up.
Fairly fast for a cruiser.
Great cockpit for Caribbean living

If the numbers come up I am not sure that I would change her for something else, just pay some one to paint her exterior which needs doing sometime soon.

Thanks for the wallpaper

For me, my contessa 26 but 2-3 feet longer with a limited amount of standing headroom and a little heavier built. Strong and still easy to handle solo but with enough room that I don't feel like I am in a shoe box when below.

John

p.s I would pay good money to crew on the above boat, you can keep your ferrari, I'd settle for the keys to the above.
The keys to a gsxr1100 and a cop free open/twisty road or the above boat, that would be a tough call, but I digress....

This is all very specific and must be part of the boat's original design IMHO. You can't really retrofit much of this.

Most of this stuff can be retro-fitted onto a boat to some degree...

The draft, PHRF rating and Ocean-capable are going to be the issue, since most cruising boats in this size range aren't going to rate all that well.

For instance, the J/35 fails several of the requirements like draft, aft cabin, etc.

All boats are compromises, and you will probably have to give something up to get a boat that satisfies most of your requirements.

You'd also be far better off starting your own thread on this topic... If you haven't, I highly recommend you read the POST in my signature to help you get the most out of sailnet.

Like this one?

RM YACHTS | RM 1060

The previous model is a favorite among young French long distance cruisers. That's a bluewater boat with lot of transats and probably circumnavigations.
RM YACHTS | RM 1050

I now that this boat has 1.6 draft and that works with so little because it is a sharp twinkeel. For having the same performance with a normal keel it is nedeed 1.9 draft. If you have really a nead for less than 1.5, you will need a boat with a lifting keel, or you will not have a boat with a very good performance to windward.


Regards

Paulo
