camaraderie genesis...sorry but i only know about boats that one sees over here. You have a pretty good list of boats now above...the only thing I can suggest is keep logging on to with your specifications till something on the list above turns up in your area. Good luck!

Valiente Can't beat a solid old Cal 2-46 in my opinion, but too many people agree with me!

Corbin 39s are also very nice, but also expensive. Lots of info here however will help you decide layouts and attributes that are applicable to a wide range of CC cruisers.

genesis-uno Dear Camaraderie, thanks for your imput, Boats from the list that you send me can be found mostly in America, the idea that we have is to buy it in the Adriatic or near by. I being looking for 1996 Amel-Santorin not many in the market, HR are a bit over my budget, I'm looking iin the US$ 250.000 range and not older than 1995. Any suggestions in that area?

bestfriend Sailortjk1 you are spot on about the Bene 42CC. What a terrible design. Not just the lack of room, but the salon seating set up with the Nav station is not comfortable. But, move up to the 44CC and its better.

gc1111 My Allied Mistress 39 is a fine blue water, center cockpit, ketch. but they are all pretty old by now.
And I think Cam outlined the Pros and Cons pretty well.

Gulfcoastbreeze Island Packet 445 or SP Cruiser, for a pilothouse.

Cruisingdad Taswell 44 & 49, but go with the Mason, Bristol, or Hylas. Under 500, Mason.

camaraderie Yes...I once looked at that boat with consideration of buying. I REALLY did not like head-room, shallow bilge...short rudder that was deeper than the shoal keel on the boat. IMHO...suitable only for relativley short people for weekend cruising.

Bluewater Center Cockpit boats over 40 feet are:
Whitby42 (w/ bolted hull/deck), Brewer42, Kelly Peterson44, Pearson422, Hylas 44 & up, Tayana42 & up, Mason43 & up, Bristol44, any PassportCC, Caliber47, any HansChristianCC, any HalbergRasseyCC, any Amel CC, any MoodyCC

Probably missed some the rest of the gang can fill you in on but that will give you a start.

sailingdog I wouldn't recommend a Bendytoy 42 CC for bluewater cruising... Get a boat like Cam's if you're getting a center cockpit beastie.
