fast safe light shoal draft ... coming from Multihull... what Boat ?

13 September 2016 - 06:24 PM


Currently own a Farrier Trimaran  F 33...


What if ...  I would be looking for a Mono to cruise in ...


min length 36 feet

the boat would be on the west coast of Florida with trips to the Bahamas

NOT a live a board ... max trip length 2 months


So we need what max draft ? I am thinking that 5 foot might be pushing it already


I like a sprit boat or at least a short pole to hang a code zero or spinnaker onto


open transom or better movable bath platform


I want to be able to control the boat by myself ... german mainsheet system ... 

and winches for the forsail in reach of tiller or wheel ( s ).....  

self tacking jib


Yes I need a bimimi but can be split in two parts to allow mainsheet inbetween.


better be wide in the butt and has chimes to keep the lady flat


I would like reefing in boom versus in mast reefing ....


I am looking at Bene Oceanis 38 ..which does have a few of my requirements but not all.

Sabre 36 ? has a few but its an old boat , nothing wrong with that ...


coming from an ultrafast tri, which ticks off most of my requiremts the search might be impossible


But lets hear
