One of a handful of production boats built today with epoxy resin in the laminate, this is a good-looking, fast racer/cruiser from Tim Jackett.
Although it conforms to CE ratings for ocean sailing, this boat is better suited for coastal cruising in comfort and short offshore passages. It's got a great set of layout options for living aboard.
Hallberg Rassy 42
A top-quality production boat, proven as an offshore passagemaker - with a few bits and pieces that cause concern.
This Bob Perry design is a strong amalgam of shapes and functions, all serving real cruising needs.
Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 43
A company as powerful as Jeanneau can build a big production boat of a quality comparable to custom boats costing much more. The Sun Odyssey 43 fits this description.
The 410 is billed as an offshore cruiser, something of a departure for a company that has otherwise concentrated on comparatively inexpensive coastal cruisers.
Tartan 3700 & 4100
Two of the best built production boats in America, the 3700 and 4100 will go darn near anywhere.
Lots of room at relatively low cost makes this aging center-cockpit cruiser a prime candidate for upgrading.
Catalina 42 Mk I and Mk II
One of the most successful large boats ever built, the Catalina 42 offers good looks, comfortable accommodations, and decent sailing ability at a low price.
C&C Express 110
The first new C&C since the acquisition of the C&C name by Tartan, the 110 is available with a surprising number of keel and rigging choices. She’s fast and fun to sail, but as a cruiser her stowage comes up short.
