Re: What would you get?? newer boat

The last few years of Moody's are all deck saloons and aft cockpits. The center cockpits are so nicely laid out that I'd definitely agree with the earlier poster and go for the 42CC. There's a 2001 in Seattle for 200k. I tried to coax an older 419 in my realistic price range away from the owner but it's perpetually for sale next year. The owner changed the decent-sized aft berth and settee into one monstrous bed.

Here's the link to the boat Beneteau 45 F5 Pinnifrania in the first post. Nice but I'd like the option to sleep on the settees in rough weather and they look just too curvy. Wish that listing had a picture of the forward pullman berth, that looks like a really comfy cabin.

Re: What would you get?? newer boat

Not sure this would be my final choice, but one of the first boats I'd look at would be this Sweden 390...

I wish it were in East Coast. There is one in here, but it is a red color hull.

I love the crew berth in this boat.

Just a tad much teak for a lazy person who does not like to wear shoe. I like my woman with low maintenance. Give me plastic (fiberglass/gel coat), stainless steel, and synthetic wood are perfectly fine. I have been worked with wood/carpentry, engine, engine rebuilt, drive-train, electrical work for all my spare time. Damn, the "Honey Do List" was never ended. I don't like to be slaved by anyone or any toys unless my safety is in questions. I want to sail and go places, not sitting at deck working on varnishing the wood.

What does this mean??? I am getting old and grumpy or I am getting wiser.

I like the crumple zone in the bow, but hate the Navi table location. You need to go thru the gallery in order to get the Nav table which is next to the stove.

The Nav table is very important to me, it is more of my sailing work flow and routine. When I jump down from the cockpit, the nav table must be there.

But this is just me and an old school habits. Of course YMMV.

The nav station does seem like a bit of an after thought but one of the things I love about it is the portlight in the cockpit so it is very easy to communicate with the helmsman.

I also find it is really not much farther from the cockpit than a traditional design. And you can get around a person in the galley to get there.

All boats are a compromise and I do most of my planning/chart work at the salon table so this was an easy area for us to compromise considering all the other great features of this boat. We have been living aboard and sailing her for 2 1/2 years now and we still feel she is the perfect boat for us.

And we love out-pointing and sailing past IPs. Many times we have been called on the radio by an IP we pass to find out what model IP we have only to tell them it is a Caliber. The colors are very similar even though the IP is darker.

I couldn't agree more.

I would not mind to bite the bullet to buy one if the price is right. It is all business decision, no emotional buy when it comes to the big ticket items.
