Don''t overlook Bayfields. They''re rare, but they''re undervalued. As Gozzard designs, they''re intended for a cruising couple and therefore make pretty decent live-aboards. Classic looks, true blue-water construction. Sizes are 23/25 (same boat), 29, 32, 44, possibly others. Would recommend 32 up, but I know a 6-4 guy who lived aboard a 29 (6-2 or 6-3 headroom) for several years.

You are on the right track with Cal''s. Look at the Cal 2-30, great headroom, great sailboat. MF

Thank you for all who have responded.

I didn''t want to mention this until the deal closed. I wanted the C&C contract to fail and 2 minutes after being freed of a bad decision I was on the phone to a broker and bought the following:

I am the proud owner of the only Allied Seabreaze on the west coast.

What went wrong with the C&C 35 deal? What year and model was it?

Don''t even board a Buccanner. Some of them are dangerous.

I''m not sure if you wanted to go this low..but the bayliner Buccaneer center cockpits are really roomy and less than 10k. If your just looking for a place to live and a good baysailor, or light coastal work, give it some thought. There are plans and specs at

I have owned an Ericson 29 for the past 6 years and if my family of 4 can survive aboard for two weeks at a time a single should have no problem. The boat is quick, well built and resale stays high - we love her.
