Re: center cockpit boat around 45 ft
Check out an Island Packet 465, Amel Mango, or Super Maramu.
I haven't sailed one, but the big turn off to me about the Amel Super Maramu is the steering set up. I can't imagine doing a long, hard, heavy weather watch steering that wheel, up against a bulkhead. And being off center it could make docking stb side to more difficult, and make looking @ the jib's luff when close hauled pretty difficult.
