I absolutely love birch. I'm slowly doing my interior over with birch plywood accented with jatoba (brazilian cherry) nosing. Bright and cheery by day, cozy and golden-red by night.

camaraderie IMHO...there are no more beautiful interiors than those on the Taiwanese/FarEast boats. Yeah...like my Tayana...but also like Passport and Mason and HansChristian and Hylas and Taswell to name just a few.
The nicer Euro boat interiors are also beautiful but in a different way. Most of the new production boats are more Vegas style!

soulesailor I would buy the boat you want based on its hull and rig and then go about modifying the interior to your liking...it's only wood. You can do a lot with wood and get everything custom to your likes and uses. You can't really change a hull or rig. Check out boulter plywood just to get some ideas on the variety of wood available. You'll wonder why every boat manufacturer chooses the same few woods every time.

CharlieCobra No problem. Wooden classics aren't for everyone and before this boat found ME, I didn't think they were for me either. The stars aligned with regards to me getting this boat and I don't regret any of it, except waiting some 25 yrs to take the leap.

Didn't mean to disparage all old boats. Yours sounds like a real head turner. I admire your tenacity in keeping up with it. I cringe at keeping up with just a teak railing!

CharlieCobra Older boats, hmm, I have one of them. Six inch wide teak planks for the sole and lot's of mahogany. I you want the mile deep finish for the wood you have, that takes proper finishing of the varnish. Wet sanding with 1500/2000 followed by slow machine buffing will bring out the grain in amazing detail. As far as older boats go, there are turds and there are TURDS. I happened to get a classic turd that's built like a tank, weighs 14K Lbs and sails really well. Is the maintenance headache worth it? Ask me when Oh Joy's turning everyone's head as I slide into an anchorage or marina. It's worth it to me.

xort A note of caution. You won't necessarily get your money back from a large investment in an old boat. There's a price range for any given boat & you'll be hard pressed to exceed that range.
A gold plated turd is till a turd!

ehmanta It all depends on money......and condition. Shannons, Gozzard,Morris, Hinckley and the like will have beautiful interiors at a premium price. Taiwanese boats will have beautiful interiors, but some may suffer from poor sailing performance and poor hull construction and water intrusion, but there are some good ones such as Panda, Passport, Baba and the like.
If you go with an American production of an older vintage in that size range, look at a Sabre 38, Tartan 37, Bristol 38/40, and others along those lines. My Tartan 37 has an all teak interior that I refinished and added new raised panel doors as well as tongue and groove paneling, stainless portlights and much more. The older the boat, the more likely you're going to need to refurbish it, but you'll spend much less for the purchase price....Just my two cents...
