For the record my panties are not at all in a bunch...I also don't tolerate elitist folks who say "you need this because it is best"...I prefer to do my own research..

I just posed a relevant question and then shared my very recent experience..

Back to basics for a moment. As with you, a Nordhavn is not in many of our futures for a variety of reasons. You provided a list of quite varied vessels you are looking at. Any hints as to range, engine size, cruising speed or class you are focusing on? Thanks

Our very short list includes Bering, Horizon EP and Bandido Series, CdM, Drettman and Inace.

All of those models are true blue water capable with engine sizes, fuel/stores cpacities and redundancy necessary for circumnavigation.

But to be honest I don't want to derail the OP's thread with my wants....

So back to our regularly scheduled program!

BTW, two of my favorite trawler style vessels are the 64 Northern Marine "Migrant" and Delta 70 (or so) "Polar Star" / "Sea Lion" which were on the market recently.

I didn't see that 64...but did have a look at Sea Lion...a stout vessel for sure...We see alot of Trawlers that are very old school woody and shippy and unfortunately are much more drawn to more modern ships

Not to mention the huge amount of maintenance involved with the very nice, attractive, traditional wood boats. Give me glass and SS any day. Unless of course maintenance simply involves a credit card.

We looked at both the 43 and 49 Nordhavn. They are made for very small people.

I think when you get to that size requirement, a sailboat (I know I'm sorry) offers the best in seaworthy solution.

Get above 55' then it's all about how much money you have... I'd put the 55' Fleming on the top of my list then.

Last Fall I looked at Migrator in Stuart and another 40 in Ft. Lauderdale and was not impressed with the layout or space of the 40's. I sorta felt like I was in an old fashioned bathysphere...all cooped up in a small space with tiny windows to see outside. Very claustrophobic to me, in other words.

I looked at the 50 that was in Jupiter and liked it much better. There were no 43's handy to see.

I think they build a good boat but in retrospect cannot image why I was ever interested in one to start with except to cross it off the list. Slow on top of slow and I am not going to cross any oceans at this stage.
