Is there a boat that....

Hey,

Is there a boat that:
Is under 40'
Sails great
Is reasonably fast (PHRF under 120)
Is easily single handed
Can take 4 adults on a week long cruise (needs to have hot+cold water, galley, decent size head, AC / DC electrical system, etc.)
Can motor all day at 7 kts minimum
Has a swim platform or open transom or is easy to board from a dinghy
Is newer than 1993

and costs under $100K (really need to be under $90K but since I'm dreaming I can set the max price at 100).

What is out there that meets those requirements?

Thanks,
Barry

J37, j109, j40

are some J-boats that fit your needs. Should be able to find a decent one for < $100K easily. The J37C are a little rare.

There should be plenty. Start looking up PHRF numbers here:
http://offshore.ussailing.org/Assets...er+19+2011.pdf

Most 40' cruiser/racers are going to have a PHRF around 120.

1993 seems like an arbitrary cutoff.

Doing a worldwide search on yachtworld for 1993 and newer boats under $100k brings up 991 hits (228 in North America). I'd guess that a third of those meet your PHRF/performance requirements. Find the ones close to you, look them up on the PHRF database, then do some research into them to see how they meet your other requirements.

I love the J boat marketing and I would probably love the boat too. I haven't seen any with swim platforms that are doe. The J35C type boats are rare and don't have swim platforms. The J105 could t handle 4 adults for a week. The newer J109 is WAY out of my price range.

Or am I missing something?

Hey,

Any ideals to narrow it down a little? The 361, 350, 373, are all too slow. The 36.7 doesn't have an easy way to board from a dinghy.

What about the 38s5?

Barry

J105 isn't what you want. It's a one design sport boat. They're basically daysailers, not cruisers. The J109 is a cruising version of the J105. Just as quick, but more comfort below. Yes, they don't have swim platforms, but you could probably install a temp one.
