    Default Another what boat thread...

    I'm bored at work and pondering the next boat over a cup of tea....

    If you were looking for a boat to meet the following criteria, does it exist?

    1) Less than <31ft long. That's absolute max length permitted in the harbour, but average length of boats in situ is around the 26ft mark.
    2) Able to dry out - so bilge or lifting keel. The deeper the draft, the shorter the sailing window per tide
    3) Around £15k, As always less would be nice
    4) Able to sail to Norway/Faroes/Azores in a modicum of comfort with two adults.

    So far I can think of the Westerly Konsort, but what else would be worth a ponder on a slow Friday afternoon?

    For sailing pleasure, Seal 26 or 27.

    To prove the old adage that people always recommend the boat they own (or owned, sold ours a few years ago), I'll throw the bilge keel Sadler 29 into the mix. Smaller inside than the Konsort, but better sailing.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a boatless man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of an Anderson 22.

    I think you could get a Westerly Merlin for that money now if you like the aft cabin layout better. Or a Moody 27/29?

    They meet the able to dry out criteria, but I get the impression I would want to cross the north sea in one

    Undoubtedly an able wee boat, but one of the ugliest wee boats to go with it. IMHO of course.

    The Buckler Ketch beats it by a country mile but we digress. The Sabre 27 has long struck me as offering a lot for what you can get one for...
