Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Just a thought...

If you could find a CSY37 already kitted out, but not ragged out, that might be a long term boat for you....dunno how much performance you really want (think you want right now)...

Will def be over 30k well equipped but might save in the long run...dunno what all you want to do.

Kinda hits your displacements numbers....

Good point. Thank you. It would be a huge minus in my considerations. I much prefer prop well protected from snags.

CSY is definitely on my list but more realistic in terms of budget is CSY 33

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

The CSY had a steel structural frame which can be problematic as these boats have aged.

Here are a few boats you might want to consider adding to your list might include the Niagara 35, some of the originals had tillers. Another option to add to your list is the Pearson 365 or 367 cutters. A favorite of mine in this genre is the Perry Designed Cheoy Lee 35. For that matter I also like the Ray Richard designed Cheoy Lee 32/Offshore 32 sloops.

Other options might include the Alajuela 33 sloop or cutter or the Aries 32/ Rough Water 33/Southern Cross 33, or the Cabo Rico 33/34 as a bit of a stretch maybe a Caliber 33. Another stretch might be the Vineyard Vixen 34.

In a different vein is something like the Endeavour 35, which was a very nice design that was a step up build quality wise than most Endeavours. Then there is something like the Bruce King designed Ericson 36C which is a surprisingly nice cruising design, and some had tillers.

Then there is something like the Bob Perry designed Islander Freeport 36.

I like mine just fine. My few complaints are more a matter of nitpicking over convenience than any problem with the boat. As to Faster's concern with the offset shaft, I haven't had a problem (and it does seem to eliminate prop walk).

Addendum: Anyone that's spent much time in Carolina and on the Chessie knows I've been through a whole bunch of crabpots

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Jeff, thanks for the suggestions. A lot of the boats you mentioned are outside my budget or come up very rarely on the East Coast market. Most likely to find would be Pearson 365. I have looked at one a while back and liked it for the most part but these are real whales, even slower than Cape Dory 33. I also don't like the prop strut setup on them, which is very exposed and likely to snag on everything. But a lot of food for thought and stuff to search for out there.

Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

A bit bigger then you want now, and just a little more money...however, think there are some diamonds in the rough out there for you, take a hard look at these, bargain hard for the right one and you've got an awesome offshore boat, another Bob Perry sleeper...

Wow! That is an awesome looking boat. I just can't swing the cost of initial purchase and the gear needed for my trip.

Re: Looking for a 32-35' offshore boat

Another design I have always liked is the Ericson 36c and the 31 Independence. These are nicely built boats designed for offshore use.
