Auriga (Selene 47) had a very large (King-size) V-berth. Never found it to be an issue.
At suggestion of our broker we did actually get a quote for re-engineering into a "Pullman" double fore/aft berth with one side access for about $14K in Rhode Island but buyers were previously sailboaters and did not have an issue with the berth. Remember -"every boat is a compromise"!!!!

A Kadey Krogen 39 or 42 would be worth taking a look at, as well. There is a 1999 39 for sale in Florida (on the Kadey Krogen brokerage website) and numerous 42s, of various age, also for sale on various websites.
Good luck.

That did that on the early Selene's. No island queen. Makes no sense!
But, I love the lines of the boat.

I've looked at the Krogen's. Had a contract on one but it didn't work out. The 39' won't work because I've been relegated to the guest stateroom. Snoring and getting up at 4:30am. The bride can't handle that!

If you find a great boat you can always replace the wife.. but the perfect boat is really hard to come by..

If you can afford to upsize to the KK54, you get a dance pole in the forward cabin. DAMHIK

"We travel throughout the Bahamas so I need a boat that can handle that area. Krogen 40' nordhavn or something along those lines."

A 23ft Bayliner will do the job for the Bahamas.

The question then becomes how much volume you think you need for comfort.

And how complex the systems you are willing to maintain to have the lifestyle you desire.

I have a beautiful DeFever 49 listed in Annapolis. The ask is a little more but you never know. She has everything you list.

Hi Chris,
That must have been a great broker :-) Hope your well. You must miss her.

You sure don't need Nordhaven or even a Krogen to "handle" the Bahamas.

Wow. That is a really nice, well maintained and equipped boat. You don't find boats for sale that are in the condition that you have kept this boat in. Somebody is going to get lucky. The only thing that I don't like about this boat is that it's not mine.

That would be a great choice. We have a comparable boat and it's perfect for our needs.

We could make that happen.

She's a wonderful boat - we had no plans to get another. She's in perfect shape. We were in the Bahamas for 16 weeks with her last winter. Then direct to Cape Canaveral, Jacksonville, Beaufort NC (double overnight), and onto Deltaville. She's great along the ICW (23 transits) or offshore. She also completed the Great Loop in 2014.

Hi Mark:
Yes, he is a really good broker!!!
Thanks for all the help selling her, Mark.
The new owners seem pretty satisfied from reading their blog, so all worked out well.
Yes, there are times we miss Auriga but then I begin to remember all the maintenance, etc. and figure we will just keep using other people's boats and chartering!!! Though that plan could always change as I still check in on TF and YW.
Best, Chris

Love this boat, defiantly worth a look, never been on the inside but it would be on my shopping list (unfortunately not in my budget) if your looking for a well found cruiser this is the one.

Start trolling web sites and look at pics and decied what style will work for you. You also need to decied what you are going to do with ie ICW and over to Bahamas or are you planning to go through canal and across Pacific. That would be a totally different vessel. Either way I am jelous good hunting.

In my experience over the years the Bahamas and the surrounding waters can get rough quickly and that's why I prefer a stout boat with stabilizers. I've working on several leads now.
Thanks
