Best sub 40ft yacht for sailing around the world...?

What type of yacht would you pick to sail around the world in (sub 40ft)?

The Tradewind 35 would be a strong contender for me and we were lucky enough to sail one recently from the Azores to the UK. The boat did not disappoint! It was a fabulous yacht delivery.

Here is a short film that we took along the way:

Re: Best sub 40ft yacht for sailing around the world...?

I haven't sailed many boats in this range enough to offer a strong opinion. The cockpit of the tradewinds 35 seems a bit small and no seat for the helm, but interior layout looks OK.

I have sailed a Nonsuch 34, Contest 36s and Contest 38 in your range and all are better in terms of layout. Not thrilled about the rig for the Nonsuch offshore. The Contest 36 which I have owned for 33 years is a brilliant design... very large for a 36 with an aft cabin you can sleep 2 fore and aft or awthwartship, a large U galley with centerline sink and a cockpit large enough for 2 people to sleep in and not interfere with the helm, Tankage is not great but you can carry extra fuel and use a water maker for passage... the only time large tanks make sense. My 36 loaded down did 150 nm a day offshore.

Price is a factor. My friend got a 36s for 30k this year. But then you dump 20k plus into it

pay attention... someone's life depends on it

The one I felt was the most comfortable to live aboard underway or not, given that it was a well found capable sea kindly boat.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
