Looking for the next step for my family. Something with room to sleep 4 and at least 14kt cruise. Not looking for a re-power but willing to do a little interior work if need be. Going to try to keep budget under $50k which is tough I realize.

I like 30' Sisu, 35 Nauset/Stillman, 31/35 JC but it needs a bridge (sorry die hard DE'ers) and 14kt cruise.

There are a bunch of boats out there that meet my criteria but most have 12 kt cruise (a couple Sisu's on YW and Midcoast) so this has become a bit of a challenge.

I have an 06 21 Seaway Seafarer with 4 stroke Yamaha 150 to get out of too so would consider trading with anyone looking to step down a little. Its a gorgeous little boat.

Help!

I'd put your Seaway on the market. Then you have cash in hand ..

Good idea but I dont want to take the chance on not having a boat for a summer and (famous last words) I think it will be easier to sell than to find the boat I am looking for.

For example, here is the perfect boat but its too slow-

Midcoast Yacht & Ship Brokerage (Tenants Harbor, ME)

So many of them out there.... A little above my budget but its a hell of a boat but slow as hell

I would love to see it but I am guessing that it is just hardtop- no bridge? I am a picky.... love to sit on the bridge and need the space for my herd.

A 35 Bruno pulled into the anchorage I was in today and I looked it over. Aside from the low headroom and moldy carpet all over the cabin, it was a great layout although a door to the v berth would be nice in certain situations.

If anyone sees anything like I am looking for sitting inthe local boatyard etc. please PM me. I am in western CT and would love to find that needle in the haystack. There is a case of your favorite drink to be had as reward for hooking me up with my next boat!

Thanks!

Ron,

I am guessing that picture was before your winter project looking at the two boats side by side. All your work made a big difference and looks better also.

Hi jack away. Dont forget to look through the fences of the local boatyards for me though. Drinks are on the line here.

Any idea what is might be on for? Would prefer an actual bulkhead with a door at the back of the cabin (I am really picky). Nice little boat though.

Frankly never understood the tuna door without the opening in the gunwale... I really like the single, huge exhaust outlet.

Is it for sale?
