Right now the list is,
GB 32, IG 32, Californian 34. We really like the two stateroom layout, also they seem to be a bit closer to our revised budget of 40-50k. We will be in a position to purchase just after July 1. Of course if the right boat presents itself before so be it. I'd rather have a single screw. Anyone know of a single screw two state vessel under 35'??

The GB32 is a single stateroom boat (V-birth with adjacent head and hanging closet). I'm not aware of any two stateroom configurations.

That particular boat has had allot of work, and it shows.

I thought I would start another thread. I am looking for a bit of advise and help in selecting our next vessel. My wife and I are starting the process so bare with me please. Some of the requirements I have come up with,
Economy a must. We use our boats when we have them. I don't want to think that ever time I want to enjoy the boat for a few hours that I have to spend a large sum of money to do so. Diesel. I am not hung up on one or two engines. I would prefer one but am open to both.
At least one head and shower
One main berth and another for our son so a small berth or bunk would be fine
No teak decks, I have read the horror stories and would like to avoid this at all cost.
We usually cruise at displacement speed so fast or slow is ok with us. In fact I'd prefer a boat that was made for economy over speed, we can always buy a lake boat for speed.
Safe - the whole family is going to be aboard.
Fly bridge is a plus but I'd be willing to consider without for the right boat.
A year round vessel, I don't like winterizing because some of the best boating can be done in the winter.
Our budget needs to be under 100k, would prefer to be closer to 50k. I don't mind a bit of work but would like a solid boat, mechanically sound and ready to enjoy. Light sanding/varnishing the rails and what not wouldn't scare me, but major work no thanks as I'd rather enjoy using the boat as opposed to "working" on the boat. I am more of a maintain the boat guy than a fix it guy.

Too bad you're on the left coast .... Trendsetter 40 for sale
