Well not a tiny house like those new-fangled huge ones, more along these lines.

And yes on the Nor'sea premium, but that is likely to work to my advantage off the back end, assuming I don't take her down to the ocean floor.

But I was surprised how reasonable the couple of Centaurs I've seen have been, imagine maybe even more so if I go stay with my friends in the UK for a while.

Seems very sturdy too, and so much easier to beach, launch & retrieve. Not as pretty though 8-)

I like your list John. You are focused on some good pocket cruisers. Myself would avoid Alberg designs as I always found their performance lackluster compared to others in the same class. But that is just my opinion. Good luck in the search!

One advantage of a Centaur would be that you could just plop it on a flatbed trailer, rather than a custom built sailboat trailer. On land, the flat bed could be used as your basement storage area around the keels.

Re: I'm in love, Nor'sea 27 "Seven" for sale

Yes, I've been working on a custom trailer design, in case I go that route.

Based on a high-lift suspension, two 7K# axles.

Most configurations make use of a low-COG drop-floor in the center with storage boxes around the lower outside.

In that mode can accommodate a full-keel boat up to 30', vehicle transport, "land yacht" living pod slides right on, and will both carry an empty 20' conex and also fit inside one.

The structural "cage frame" riding the main chassis rails can be flipped over, so what was the low-clearance floor underside becomes a full-width deck-over flat bed, with 20" ground clearance, capable of off-road hauling, whatever the truck can handle.

Without that framing, stripped down for carrying a heavy keel boat (the heaviest possible load of course), hoping to get the TARE weight under 2K#lb, so actual load capacity is well over 11K#

Would love to do it in aluminum for the heavy framing bits, mostly bolted for flexibility, but of course the core wheel/suspension assemblies will be steel, maybe Kodiak's Dacromet coating for resisting salt-water corrosion.

All that said, if I can pick up a used boat trailer capable of hauling the Nor'sea for say $1,500 then that's the way to go for now, design the living pod to ride on that.

Seven is a pretty boat. Got to see it in person once. Hope she finds a good home.

She's coming along, but slowly. Still no idea when I'll get to launch her again.

Jerry:

Is the boat still for sale? I visited you back in May to look at it. I would call you but I lost your number.

You can reply in private message or email if you prefer.

Thanks
