Yep, but you cover a lot of ground in little time. Maybe I'll have to add a N86 as a mothership/bunkering boat to the list....

Nordhavn 62... As long as i dont have to work 5 more years to buy one. the older ones are under $500k by now arnt they?

I also look out the side-eye at sailboats too... a well made 45-ish footer cruising cat set up for singlehanding would be dreamy.

Three at the top of my dream list...all low windage, beachable, having long range or able to go a long time (as in months) between marina visits, and serious weather capable vessels.

I agree with the person who posted being very comfortable with a mid 40's size vessel. Those of you looking at 100 footers maybe trying to compensate for something???

Ahhhh...nope. At one time, before my pension was gutted, the N62 was my dream boat. That was the goal. The goal has been lowered a bit but still have a some time to make some money. Anyway, to answer your question, no. You might see them in the as low as 7 or 800k but that is as low as I see them. Many are still over a million. I keep an eye on them.

When Nordhavn was just making it's splash around the turn of the century, I went to the Miami boat show. Nordhavn brought their entire line up(at the time...46-62 and all in between) and I was awfully impressed with the N50 of that era. So I keep my eyes on those too. Gotta be a flybridge model....which is rare but they are out there. So N50 is near the top of my "realistic" dream boat.

A little less extravagant?

Well, my current "dreamboat" is perhaps a little more modest than some of you bigger dreamers!
I would be VERY happy with either of these two 35' designs by Jay Benford. In one sense, though, I am a bigger dreamer than you guys, because at least you can go out and buy a Nordhavn 62 (if you have the $!), but I can't seem to find any of these "little" Benfords on the market. Nobody is building them, so it looks like I would have to go to a custom builder? ..... $$$!

We're all dreaming. Everyone can do that. The one boat that always comes back to my dreams is:

I can hear the theme track to Miami Vice while watching that vid! Was that Don Johnson running the boat?
Would love to captain that boat for just one day with a 2' chop running in the Straits of FL.

Wifey B: Your key words are just one day. It would be a great play boat but a lousy cruising boat.
