Hello,

This is my first post on SailNet. I've just sold a little trailerable boat that I had for six years and sailed from New Jersey to Florida to BC. Up here, I need something bigger, dryer, more comfortable and much more seaworthy.

I'm hoping to find a pilothouse boat, 30'-36'. I'd like to be able to motor around, if not sail, all year round and explore the area a bit. I'm tall, 6'5", and would like to be able to stand up.

I saw a listing for a Cooper 316 and that boat looked perfect - 7' headroom. Unfortunately that boat has been sold; the listing is outdated. It appears there aren't many of these.

I would like to pose the following questions to you:

- Are you aware of other pilothouse boats with much headroom?
- Do you know any that are for sale and affordable?

I will probably have other questions in the future..

Of course I would love it if this boat was capable enough to take me to Hawaii, but that isn't a requirements. I'd just be happy to explore the local area.

I'm looking to title the boat in the US but a Canadian boat would fine too - I wouldn't mind importing it.

Thank you!

Thanks for the pointer. Looks like a nice boat. Seems like it should be up here, not in Florida. New engine too.

I'll see how far I can stretch that budget if I need to. 35-37k seems to be a common price range.

For now I'm looking for boats that will allow me to stand up.
