Modern High Caliber Voyagers
Fast voyagers for seeing the world

So Many Great Boats to Choose From

Modern VoyagersTimes are changing and the modern high caliber cruising vessel is a little different than the traditional cruisers of the past. Modern designers like German Frers, Chuck Paine, Robert Perry, Carl Schumacher, Bruce Farr and others have refined the hull shapes and used modern construction techniques and materials to create modern voyagers that sail fast, motor fast, and which provide amazing accommodations.

If your vision calls for more animal sailing characteristics and more creature comforts, and less exterior maintenance, and amazing load carrying capabilities, and IF your budget allows, you can buy an amazing high caliber ocean voyager built for purpose to go anywhere. You can have water tight bulkheads, a walk in engine room, dedicated lockers for sails and all the things you need. Using mechanical, hydraulic, and electric advantages you can, as a couple, sail a 55 foot boat around the world. Our Hallberg Rassy 53, was such a yacht. She was a beautiful German Frers design built by one of the World's best builders. We can help you find your modern voyager! Call us. We definitely appreciate what money can buy! Beautiful boats.

What Boat Should I Buy?

Modern 05And... why should you pay 2.5 million when a million will give you everything you need, everything you could wish for, and resale value!!

We are proud to have helped our clients find amazing vessels. We have sold every one of these high quality capable, modern sailing voyagers. The designers and the builders turn out yachts that are second to none. These vessels are beautiful at anchor and amazing to sail.

We have sold several Apogee 51, Little Harbor 53, Hallberg Rassy 53, 46 and 43, Oyster 56, Northwind 55, Farr 50, Bowman 48, Taswell 49, Swan 48, Outbound 44 and a dozen others truly modern world voyagers.

German Frers

Modern 02We love Frers designs! We owned a Hallberg Rassy 53 and she sailed like a wizard in light air and hardly noticed 35 knots in the ocean. Frers designs for several production builders including Hallberg-Rassy, Nautor Swan, and the very popular Hylas. We'd love to help you find a great sailing voyager that is a modern platform to cruise the world. For cruising the world, a Hallberg Rassy, Frers designed vessel is an amazing choice. We know because we owned one. We've sold a lot of them. The Hylas 49 is a sought after cruising vessel that definitely is a wonderful option when you want that nice aft stateroom layout and all the space in the world. The Swan is for those of you who really want to go fast and have lots of money! Maybe a J Boat if you have the desire and not as much money. Amazing vessels for every desire.

Chuck Paine

Modern 03How about Chuck Paine's incredible eye? He surely draws some of the most beautiful boats ever seen. We love Chuck Paine designs and we sold lots of them. We love the little ones, the Morris 36 and 38. And we really love the big ones, the Morris 46/48. Morris Yachts builds a beautiful boat. These modern voyagers are beautifully designed, incredibly well engineered, and extremely well built. Paine's cruisers are of moderate draft with medium displacement. They are very stable and very fast cruising yachts. We love these boats if you can afford to own one. Some are one of a kind, like that beautiful French & Webb 75 and the Kanter 65 you saw at the Annapolis Boat Show.

Cabo Rico has taken advantage of Chuck Paine's talent to design a new Cabo Rico 42 and 56. These are great boats!

Working with builders like Lyman Morse and Bowman and Kanter, you can't go wrong. We'd love to help you find that really high caliber, special, modern voyaging yacht and it just might be a Chuck Paine design. We've sold a handful of these incredible beautiful high-end world voyagers that include Paine's design for the Bougainvillea/Apogee Series off offshore cruisers. We sold "Enterprise" the Apogee 51 pictured TWICE! Awesome boats they are.

Fast Modern Voyagers!

Modern 04When you look for swift modern cruisers you have to look to the designers of the race boats. The late Carl Schumacher designed a lot of custom-racing yachts and he designed the Outbound 44/46! That tells you something. A couple came to visit us and after they talked about their sailing style and requirements, oh and their budget, there was just one boat for them! Yep. An Outbound 44.

Another client came to us. He owned a Beneteau 473 and he wanted a high quality great sailing vessel to cruise the Med with his family. A Farr 50, Bruce Farr design, was the ticket. An amazing pilothouse voyager. For that sailor who loves sailing performance, there are a few high quality choices.

Maybe you want more performance and speed. You maybe don't relish varnishing much. Maybe you want an interior that is light and bright and the layout totally works for a couple with occasional guests. A Saga 43 met that need for one such couple. Let us help you find the best boat you can own to meet your needs and your budget.

How about the amazing, fast Dashew designed vessels, the Deerfoot and Sundeer. We just sold a beautiful Deerfoot 62 and did an easy 10 knots at sea trials. Now that is a modern cruising boat way ahead of its time!

High Quality Elegant Voyagers

Modern 06Ted Hood designed some gorgeous classic and stylish vessels. His Little Harbor 52 is possibly the most elegant sailing yacht money can buy. We just had the pleasure of selling a gorgeous LH52 named Canvasback. The LH46 is pretty nice. And so is the LH38 for that matter. Beautiful, great sailing boats of yacht quality.

You can put John Alden is this category also. If you love real boats that look like real boats should, you can hope to find them on our website! We love beautiful boats.

High Quality Voyagers of Yesteryears!

Modern 07Maybe you love the great boats and just don’t have the budget for a new one. There are still some magnificent vessels out there for you. This Hallberg Rassy 42 Ketch is one of our favorites. Just one of many good old high quality voyagers!

Our good friend Bob Perry designed so many great cruising boats, who would have known he was himself a performance sailor. He is famous for his Valiant, but he designed half the boats out there cruising. There are so many wonderful vessels designed by Robert H. Perry that you can now afford. The venerable Tayana is a great boat. The Passport has evolved and offers some wonderful amenities. So many good boats!

So even if you don't have a million to spend, let us help you find that perfect voyager to take you where you want to go.
