Need a list of under 40' full displacement boats

Although we have enjoyed traveling on our 1981 Mainship II 34', I am now entertaining a full dispalcement boat under 40'. We found we can live with a single engine and actually enjoy lower speeds, so maybe it is time to move on to a full displacement. We are looking for a list of boats that fit that criteria.

Why full displacement? The list is pretty short and a semi-displacement run slow will give pretty good fuel economy.

My 40 will get 3.3NMPG at 6.3 knots...if I slowed her to 5.5...probably would get over 4.0NMPG...

I'm not saying that's going to be as good as a FD hull...just cutting your list to just FD hulls under 40 may really limit what you really want or can buy.

Willard and Krogen both have FDs less than 40, but as psneeld says the list is pretty short.

Top speed ten, under 40 feet and full displacement?
Pretty much a transition hull I would say but I'll wait for a full QBBL review...

I am not sure this is a full displacement boat, but I could be wrong.

I agree. But the forum elders were all pretty quick to call it so. So instead of arguing I just accept it :-)

I had performed some research on FD trawlers before this post and found very little info. I decided I was doing something wrong on my search, so I posted this. Evidently there is very little out there in FD under 40'. Maybe a "one off" buiild here and there, but not much production. Thanks for the information on this site.

Yes there are some nice "one off" trawlers out there...especially in the 40 foot range. Most experience skippers know that production trawlers are marketed for a large market...not necessarily designed for liveaboard or truly long range cruising by 2 people.

Had I had the time, I would have spent more of it investigating some of them before just jumping on a production model that has been a rebuild anyway.

I'm not sure this "baby Selene" is full displacement Selene 36.

A Brit boat. They are actually a motor sailor w heavy emphasis on motor. Not motor but engine of course.

Look on Yacht World.

My 30 Campion is more of a FD than SD boat. Some of the Albins are FD.

Willards, some Selenes, Krogens, some Atlantics or Prairies models, Albins but small older ones, Hatteras 42 LRC, Diesel Ducks.

There are others that escape my memory but most are as pointed out, one offs or small production models locally known.

Keep your eye out for interesting boats in the ads and on the docks.

Most of our boats though are some form of planing hull, maybe not fast but planing nonetheless. Don't close the door on them.
