QuickMick, I have to agree with you on the Cheoy's but I am having a hard time finding good info on them. the association page is not all that great IMO. Wondering what is in the same "boat" as them too.... A 38' - 41' or so would do very nicely....

Hans Christian, Pacific Seacraft, are all similar in terms of canoe sterns, heavy displacement, boats designed for offshore.

Great question! Most of the other dream boat threads stipulate that price is no object; I like this twist. Realistically, I will never take out a loan for a boat, and I'm really "frugal", or as my teenagers like to say, "cheap". So, I will be paying cash. Also, dream as I might, the Admiral and the family have no real interest in cruising, although I harbor dreams of maybe a few days aboard in local waters. And I love the classic, CCA look, but don't want a full keel boat. Add it all up, and my "realistic dream" boat is a restored Pearson Renegade, a 27 foot coastal cruiser that has a split underbody, looks a lot like a Pearson Triton above the waterline, and can comfortably (ahem) cruise two or three for a few days, while not breaking the bank to buy or keep at the dock.

What's my dream boat?

The Cheesy Answer: The one in my driveway. My O'Day Javelin is ready to take me out on the water whenever I want. Can't get much dreamier than that.

The Letter-of-the-question answer: I'd love to take my lady cruising on something like an Allied Princess. I love their looks, and they look supremely comfy. I also have an irrational sweet spot for mizzens. Don't ask me why, I don't know.

Since it doesn't involve winning the lotto, I already own her.

Or does she own me?

Well, I want several: One for racing, one for bluewater cruising and other for coastal cruising. Thinking better, for racing and coastal cruising I want two of each: A Trimaran and a Monohull...well, I want also a smaller cat for having fun...it is to ask too much?

Regards

Paulo

Hmm... this is a very difficult question. I think my moderate, short-term goal "dream boat" (say, 5-10 years) would be a Pedrick-designed Cheoy Lee, perhaps the 41, perhaps larger. Longer term, I expect to own one in the 70' to 100' range. They can be had used for only half a million or so, so I don't think this will be out of reach in 10-20 years for me. If I start a successful business, I could even get one of the really nice newer (though probably not new since that's a waste of money) for a couple million. And if my business ends up being the next Microsoft or Google or Facebook, I'd really love a Perini Navi. I think Mirabella IV was a Perini Navi built boat, and I believe I saw it listed for sale in the back of Yachting Magazine for about $13M.

I can't imagine someone owning a 48 foot boat wanting something else. If you won the lotto, would you look at bigger or would you want something made of fiberglass or steal?
