    Cox 21 with bilge keels?, if you can find one. Sails well, sleeps 4 at a real pinch and has done a transat.

    No disclaimer, my old man designed it and I had some input

    A photo certainly beats a lot of words.
    I don't think it was clear before, how tight-packed these boats would be.

    Is that blue boat a Newbridge? It may be my phone's small screen but it looks like a triple-keeled Achilles 24.

    Which, as was said here earlier, would be ideal.

    Hurley 22 and Trident 24 (3 keel) both look like proper yachts and sail well, IMHO the Hurley a bit faster. Corribee very pretty but as others have said tiny cabin - I once looked at a varnished wooden one which was really lovely. Having once owned and loved a Mk 1.5 ply Caprice ( Mk I hull/deck with Mk II keels). The Mk I hull/deck is far prettier than the later Mk II and GRP GRP versions, at the time I hoped to upgrade to a Capriccio, which was a stretched version to about 23 ft and really rather attractive. Doubt if may 1960s ply boats are still in good order though.

    I have a kingfisher 22. Twin keel, lives in Ryde on a drying out berth. Sails well and can sleep 4 very cosy. All depends what people looking for. Mine has good headroom and sails well single handed.

    The RYA used to use a fleet of Hunter Duettes for their "Young Skippers" program back in the '80s. I used to encounter them sailed by four teenagers, with no engine, just a scull. Their boat handling was exemplary and the boats sailed very well. I'd not knock them they are fine for what they are and have much more room below than the Corribee.
