Hi all--appreciate all the knowledge on this site. Spent some time researching and have a few questions. First off, live in Southern California and currently own a 43 SF. Thinking of moving into something better for weekend getaways (mostly to Catalina, maybe San Diego), and entertaining, less fishing oriented. But would also like to be able to cruise down to Cabo or north to the Bay Area and maybe even Canada or even Alaska someday. Staying relatively close to shore the entire time. Not overly concerned about speed, but would be great if I could get to at least 15+ nmph if I needed to. Assume budget up to $900k. Prefer keeping it 60' or below. Not sure if I need to keep it 53 or below to avoid needing to hire a captain. Have owned my 43 SF for over 5 years now, but I read somewhere on this forum insurance may be an issue if I increase length by >10 ft. Want to have areas for seating 10 or so people at a time inside and outside (not 5+5). Been looking at all sorts of models. The true long range trawlers like the Nordhavns, Krogens, Northern Marine, Selenes, etc. are way more than I need in terms of passagemaking capability and for the most part seem too slow for what I'd like. Also looking at Grand Banks Europa, Offshores, Outer Reef, Fleming, Marlow. I like this style (I think they are trawlers), but generally twin engine unlike the long range boats. Also looking at Ocean Alexanders. Only issue I have with this style is the salons seem more narrow due to the walkaround. On the other side I'm looking at motor yachts like the Hatteras. Really, really like the 63RPH, but unfortunately it's a little on the long side. Also looking at Sunseekers, but they don't seem nearly as well built or stout as the Hatteras and most of them in my size range have Man engines, which I want to avoid due to maintenance cost. These styles don't have the walkaround which tends to make the salon look much larger. Questions: 1. I read the OAs are good except they all have aluminum fuel tanks that will give out at some point. The OA website says their tanks last longer than anyone else's, but trying to get the real answer here. I read in in the context of a post comparing to Hatteras, which uses fiberglass that supposedly lasts forever. Given my budget I'm looking at older boats so this is a real issue for me. 2. Assuming I want to take a long trip, what sort of GPH at say a 10 knot cruise am I looking at on the Hatteras 63RPH (Cat 3412), Offshore 54 Pilothouse (Cat C12) GB Heritage 52(Cat C9), Fleming 55 (Cummins 450C), Hampton 58 (900hp Yanmars), Hampton 558 (480hp Cummins)? I know I said unlikely to get the Hatt due to size but just curious. 3. Is there anything comparable in style and quality to the Hatt 63RPH but smaller? 4. Did Outer Reef ever make anything in the 55 range? Don't see anything on YW and their website doesn't show current models in that size. Any other pearls of wisdom appreciated.
