How would we know it was the internet if things didn't routinely run off the tracks?

Thanks much for the offer about the N47. We've spent some time on an N40 and found it wasn't enough, in large part due to the lack of outside space and access. The N40 we know had no flybridge and so really no useful topside space, and the only way from the bow to stern was through the cabin - no outside walkway.

As I see it, the N47 addresses these issues with the additional benefit (IMHO) of getting the master stateroom out of the bow.

Is that a fair read on my part?

We toured a N47 at Trawlerfest and it was impressive. Found it much nicer and better laid out than some of the larger Nordhavns. The roomy standup engine room was a dream. If I were looking for a blue water cruiser, it would be at the top of my list. The main negative we had was the 6' draft.

All very good advice. We will consider these items. We've been pretty effective working a decision tree on these types of questions in the past and expect the process to work well this time too.

I'm hearing about some options I wasn't aware of which we'll need to investigate, most notably Cherubini and North Pacific. Any others?

Yes, the 47 has a walkaround deck on the STB side which leads to the portuguese bridge then FB.

Here are some pics for you to digest.

There are at least 2 of us on the forum that own Cherubinis. I own a 45 and there is a 50 also on the forum. Happy to answer any questions you may have.

Edit: Saw that outside walkway from bow to stern was important to you. Neither the 45 or the 50 have outside walkways.

A few random thoughts:

These "what boats should I consider" threads usually elicit answers such as "just like mine." Ignore as best you can these types of replies unless you know the person well and his/her cruising and maintenance style.

Suggest you define your missions, face to face with many owners, go to boat shows, walk the docks and make friends with some really good boat yards - for honest Q & A - who routinely work on boats such as you may be considering.

Then comes the budget decisions. Nothing wakes one up like buying a boat and then the other shoe drops - getting estimates for new electronics, dinghys, needed upgrades, repairs, paint etc. As you begin looking seriously at vessels both old and new keep both types of expenses in mind.
