Will you take me back?!

6 years ago I left my moody sailing and bought a P O W E R B O A T. Emm great at 30 knots but missed the pottering out at sea. You dont potter in diesel engines.

So Im thinking about buying an in betweeny type sailing boat.

Around 50k ish

So far my tick list is a Moody Eclipse 33 but would like suggestions.

I do miss the sailing so anything considered around 50k ish.

The Moody, i like the inside steering position.

I also like the fact I can see out without peering out of a slitty window at eye level.

List of boats to view greatly appreciated.

It is a motorsailor

sleek beautiful lines - a real classic

full standing headroom in parts of the cabin and right through the cockpit

separate heads,

powerful, reliable and quiet diesel engine (AKA 'the beast'

race tuned rig

ideal for exploring those parts of the UK other boats find hard to penetrate

lovely name

I must admit i loved the intro ! Very clever. I teach Web site construction to 15 year olds and thought this was very good!

I could do with seeing a bit more than the mirror jib!

Someone else asked a similar question recently.

I think a LM was a popular sugestion.

My contribution was and is a Jeanneau Espace 1100, a bit older than the Moody but a couple of feet bigger methinks.

EDIT: I was wrong about an LM being a popular sugestion, anyway the thread is here:
