  1. Formosa 43

    the Formosa 43 is quite unique member of the Formosa lineup... More reminiscent of a swan then a Formosa. My parents have had one for about 15 years and it is one heck of a boat. It's particularly well laid out for a family or for chartering, which I believe was its original purpose.

    • Trident Warrior 35

      Solid blue water boat designed by Angus Primrose. I was actually surprised to not find it in the list. It is pretty hard to find any information on this boat eventhough quite a lot have been built.

              • Shearwater 45

                Mahina says: Strong, traditional appearance, fairly good performance.

                • Skye 51

                  The Skye 51 by Kaufmann & Ladd is an ideal long distance cruising yacht with a reliable and safe sea keeping character.

                  Moa Ta Shipyard (Taiwan)
                  Available as cutter or ketch.
                  Because of a dispute between the American importer and the builder, some were sold as MAO TA 51.
                  Also sold by Pan Oceanic Marine (USA) as OCEANIC 51.

                  • F&C 44 Ketch

                    Built in Argentina by Frers and Cibils.
                    Lovely lines, rich wood interior and great sailing characteristics.
                    A good looking Blue water cruiser.

                    • Oyster 435 cutter-ketch deck saloon

                      Perfect offshore sailboat for a couple. Well balanced sail plan with much larger boat motion.

                      • Hallbery-Rassy 33 Mistral

                        The HR33 is a solid cruiser which competed on behalf of Hallberg for the cruising market against the Rassy Rasmus, following the acquisition they complimented one another very well. Skeg hung rudder, reasonably long keel, very well protected prop, foam core eliminates rot issues, tiller was standard (even those fitted with a helm have a tiller backup), stout rigging, good sail plan, sizable tankage (located as such to keep a low CQ), tons of storage space, very usable/well protected cockpit, nice anchor locker, excellent galley layout, berths for up to 6 and lots of space for moving about safely on…

                        • S&S Sagitta 35

                          Sparkman & Stephens - Sagitta 35. Circumnavigated several times, even singlehanded nonstop. A true offshore racer/cruiser. This handsome production yacht was built by the Sagitta Boat Company of Svendborg, Denmark in the early 1970s. Construction is solid skin fiberglass laminate with longitudinal stringers and a balsa cored deck. She is fast for a boat of her age even compared to more modern boats, especially tacking is a pure joy in this steady and well balanced design og Sagitta 35.

                          • Centurion 32

                            Less known in the U.S. than the Contessa 32, the design specifications are nearly identical. However, Kim Holman conceived the Centurion 32 quite earlier than the Sadler design with production commencing in 1968. Sailing characteristics are at the minimum are of equal balance, speed and seaworthyness with the added attribute of a drier cockpit underway and an overall superior construction in keeping with the Wauquiez tradition. It would be fitting to acknowledge the creation of Mr. Holman and Wauquiez in what many owners believe is a true classic performance cruiser fully capable of circumnavigation, having won her class in the…

                                  • Kaiser Gale Force Cutter 34

                                    A superbly built, well designed, heavy displacement cruiser. Old school all the way, but a boat that inspires a lot of confidence. Only 33 were built in the family boatyard of John Kaiser. Easy to singlehand with a cutter rig, though the large mainsail does require prompt reefing when the winds start to perk up. Great cabin layout for a couple and good storage volume for long voyages.
