We are looking for a trawler like boat with the capability to cross oceans - safe and comfortable. Since the kids are getting older we will be much more portable so we can extend our journeys - both longer periods (many months) and longer distances! We currently live up north. But we plan to travel far, so the boat must be comfortable in both cold and hot climate. I find the Nordhavn boats very tempting, but unfortunately they are a bit over our budget. Nordhavn 60 for example has a great layout with the salon, galley and master stateroom in the same level without any stairs. Big enough to be seaworthy, but not too big to be handled by two persons. Two separate staterooms (at least), are required. A reasonably sized galley too.
