BluemanSailor I had a Bristol 32- built 1976, and did a nice 14 month Atlantic trip. Cape May- Bermuda, Azores, Portugal, Canary Islands, Tobago - up the Caribbean island chain back to Bermuda and then Norfolk.

Boat did great- added a Monitor and inner Forestay and refrigeration. She carried plenty of water but had to add 5 jerry cans diesel.

A little tender but a very strong boat!

baboon The tartan is a very solid boat, one issue for offshore work is its very large cockpit, lack of bridgedeck and small scuppers. I really like ours for inshore sailing, but if I took it offshore I would build a bridgedeck. If built thick it would also reduce cockpit volume.

Adding better scuppers should be not too hard as the aft end of the cockpit is very close to the stern.

Lots of choices out there, although most of us like best the boat we own (or build...).

Heck, I'd even suggest adding an Ericson-built Olson 911LE to his list of models to consider. Not that I have any bias of course!

I'd say they couldn't go wrong with an O-34 for that matter.

The list was not meant to be inclusive - the E28 looks like it should be there. Thanks for adding it.

ramminjammin What Jeff H said.....

I purchased a 1980 Tartan 30 tall rig a few years ago( competition model with 500 lbs more lead and taller mast.That a guy from E usa had class raced and he was really a big promoter of that class. And he has her well maintained and set up, although she sat on the hard for awhile. I recently had to rebuild the rudder, but now it is bullet proof, i just went over her today cleaning everything inside and was remarking how solid she is after all these years. Find one of these that was looked after and you will not regret it.

How about an Ericson? 27 or 29 70s Bruce King or the later fractional "+" series? I have a preference for fractional but do not ever seem to see offshore types in the 'cheap' range (under $15k). Jeff, I know your general preference for waterline - and I agree, just that the initial use is likely to be a lot of miscellaneous Bay sailing and the 5' footish draft range is close to the limit for our area.
Out of interest, why have you skipped the E-28?

MarkCK Always been a fan of the Tartan's. Although with older boats the one that was nicest new might be the biggest piece of crap due to lack of maintenance.

WDS123 Check out Santana 30/30 as well as Schock 35 both well priced on used market and quite a few hulls in FLA market.
