"Ann and Nev, I noticed earlier that your boat was for sale and to be honest It's what I an looking for and even better at the price I want. The only problem is I won't be ready to to purchase for 2 more years if I'm not willing to…"

"Hi, Nev and I built our Tiki 46, Peace IV, over in England starting 1997 and over a 5 year period we actually worked 3 and a half years to build her.  We crossed the Atlantic immediately upon launch and have sailed her over 50,000 miles mostly…"

"I'm thinking the same as you Cosby.  Looking at self building a larger wharram for liveaboard.  It seems like there is a bit of a gap between the Tiki 46 and the Pahi 63 since everything in between is professionally made only.…"

"Tiare has the charter layout, which suits us being a family, also good now as we are setting up a day sail plus overnight trips here in Japan. More at GoSeaCamping.com (site not live yet). Having the extra private cabins gives us the flexibility to…"

"I am in the extremely early stages, but I'm sure I won't be building it myself.  I am looking at both new construction and purchasing of a used boat. Cos"

"Are you planning on building it yourself or having it built? Reason I ask is the Pahi 52 and Islander 55 plans aren't available for self building and Andy Smith Boatworks is the only place to have one of them built according to JWD website,…"

"Thank you everyone for your replies.  I guess my next question should be can you remodel the interior?   Should that be a different topic?  Never really sure with a forum how to proceed. Cos"

"Hi Cos, We own Tiare, an Islander 55. Yes it can be sailed by a couple, also single if you are the cautious type. The masts are short so sails are pulled up by hand, lowering and raising the anchor, stowing the chain as it comes in, are easily done…"

"How did you hook it up?  I suppose along the center line of the boat.  I wonder what the affect of hooking 2 kites up, one at each bow. Cosby"

Too big for a couple? Pahi 52 Islander 55 Tiki 46

My wife and I are planning an early retirement now that our daughter is no longer at home.  I was wondering if any couples had experience sailing any of the boats mentioned in the subject line.  I know they are on the large size, but it will be a full time live aboard and I will be working on it for awhile, so we will need extra space. Thank you, CosSee More
