Design Parameters For an Ideal Sailor’s Motorboat

Chapter 2 of 6 in the Online Book Motorboats For Sailors (Second Edition)

In the last chapter I wrote about a fundamental problem for an aging voyaging sailor looking to transition to a motorboat:

For many of us, the sailboats we already have are better offshore motorboats than anything readily available out there on either the used or new boat market: safer, more comfortable at sea, dramatically more fuel efficient, and in many cases faster.

What We Aging Sailors Need

What we aging sailors really need, or at least want, is a simple, high quality, live aboard, production motorboat that can cross oceans as well, or maybe even better, than our sailboat and that also is cheaper to own and easier to maintain.
