jflowers Look at the Hunter 37-cutter. It only has 100 gallons of water and 50 gallons of diesel but it does have a separate shower. Google 'hunter cutter' or 'Windflower'.

Canibul well, I am hoping to be able to use solar. We have direct sun here almost every day, for 12-14 hours. I am at about 21 deg. North.

sailingdog Canibul-

You might be better off with a slightly larger watermaker than a smaller one, as it allows you to make more water in the same amount of time. This is particularly true if you're going to be using the engine to provide the electricity to make the water.

Canibul by "solar powered" I mean real small and 12 vdc, of course. Have been looking at SeaQuencher SQ200,and lately the PUR Powersurvivor 40E, although its a little lite on the production side, I can survive on 1.5 gph. for a $ 3000. lightweight RO system.

There are a few others out there as well. Spectra Ventura 150 looks good. Its boiling down to a matter of whether I want long showers or just to be able to top up tank while running engine, or during the day while solar active. Do I really NEED 6 gallons an hour? I think a good 2-3 gallons an hour might do it. Keep me topped up between rain fills, or marinas, and enough to survive if the watertank were ruptured, or contaminated, etc.
Input greatly appreciated.

Which solar-powered watermaker are you looking at???

SailorMitch Caliber 40LRC? Also check out Nauticats and some of the other motor-sailors to get the view you want. Or perhaps a Winnebago would be a better choice.

Boat Suggestion

If you want big tankage and a walkaround berth, I would suggest the Island Packet 380. The master berth is forward and is a walkaround approximately queen size. It carries about 170 gallons of water and 85 gallons of fuel (if my memory is right). On the downside, this boat is very popular and commands a high price during resale.

Good luck with your purchase.

sailingfool RE: Bristol 41.1,
PS - although you didn't mention sailing performance the Bristol is reasonably capable of getting out of its own way, PHRF rating of 120 (not to launch a war, but as a comparison a boat like the Island packet 40 rates 156...).
