    I’m in it but I didn’t take it, so I can’t claim credit.

    She did have a deckhouse, and, sure enough, the following year a wave smacked it off.

    No seriously.
    A tiny point, but I think bulwarks are a great thing. They add expense, weight, windage and can be vulnerable to damage but I like them at any price.

    We have this steel bespoke yacht at the moment. http://www.jryachts.com/yachts-for-s...n-42cc/1665670

    She could fit the bill with some adaptations.

    She has heating and is fully insulated. She also has a solid dodger instead of a spray hood.

    This would be suitable depending if you could get along with the interior.

    Looks like jonic has nailed it, but at a lower price point:

    I bless them whenever I drop a shackle pin, bolt, nut, washer, pencil, spanner, screwdriver...

    Frank Holden of this parish could make a strong case for a Westerly Sealord.

    And I remember reading about the adventures of Rev Bob Shepton (I think that was his name) in high latitudes (incl Greenland) with an even smaller Westerly (a 33' Discus).

    Better not tell the Rev Bob Shepton - his Westerly Discuss won’t manage to make any successful trips to the Artic, will it
    Or the hundreds of other GRP boats which have successfully cruised high latitudes.
    (Though if budget not an issue some of the new alloy “expedition yachts” would be nice)
