Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

Truly beautiful boats ... you are right Paulo, the Scalar is the pick of a very attractive litter.

They were saved by a neighbor company that makes motor boats and that now owns Najad. I think they are going out of trouble and they certainly deserve it.

Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

For a few years runnng, an aft cockpit Najad was probably my favorite boat in the Annapolis Show... One year the 332, I believe, another the 440 AC, and then their 35-footer (which CRUISING WORLD referred to as a "Pocket Cruiser" in their review)

Even more is the pity, that Najad filed for bankruptcy last summer...

Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

There are SO many cool European boats that we never get to even hear about, let alone see, on this side of the pond.. Thanks for those, and all the others, Paulo!

Hi! No the first one is a Najad 38, a special edition, in the middle you have a Nordborg and the two last ones and more beautiful are Scalar.

Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

Regarding the aesthetics of small center cockpits I still think they are generally too high for my taste but some manufacturers have found a way of disguising that in a very effective way, using wood. I know, I am an aesthetics freak but I found these ones pleasing to my eye and some even very beautiful and I want to share with you guys, maybe you find them beautiful too





















Well, the last one are not really CC cockpit boats but they are not also true AC boats, let us call them classics?

Killarney,
The Moody 425 was always high on my list of desirable boats. Very few in Oz but to my mind a goodun.

Re: Center Cockpit Versus Aft Cockpit

Of the mid-30s CC boats I quite like the Moody 345. Not too many on this side of the pond but very nice boats. They even look OK. The big compromise is that the passage to the aft cabin is low - but this is not something you do too often in a day.

Most of the references in this thread point to some high end/larger CC designs, but I'm wondering if any out there can comment or has experience on some of these specific models that are more in reach of the "budget sailor". Particularily sailing characteristics, and operating under the general acknowledgment that most find the cc's to be "ugly" (though I don't find a couple of them ugly, especially the S2 9.2C)

S2 9.2C

Irwin 37 CC

Morgan 41 Out Island

Coronado 35

O'Day 32

O'Day 37

Any others I'm missing? Thanks, Mark
I'm one of the eccentrics (some would say weirdo's) who actually LIKE the Coronado 35 (and 41). I've never been on a similar sized boat that had so much useful accommodation, with headroom everywhere. I also like the flush deck, a LOT. They are a bit "motorsailorish" - overly small rig and REALLY suffer from a lack of stowage, however the big deck can easily hold a couple of deck boxes that double as seats. Less easily corrected is very small tankage.

For a dockside liveaboard and local coastal sailing they would be high on my list of choices. They come REALLY cheap too.

One thing about their aesthetics - is absolutely essential to have the original style broad stripe of colour that runs through the hull ports - they are pretty ugly without it - it really makes a difference to their appearance. A band of the same colour around the moulded recess on the outside top of the cockpit coaming improves their appearance as well. With the stripes they look a lot less dumpy.
