Medium sized cruising yachts like these are capable of serious offshore passage making, whilst being reasonably economic to maintain and operate.
And for competitive types, 30-35 foot cruising yachts are a popular size for club racing under handicap rating rules.

Many thanks to Richard Stuckey for the great pic of his cruising yacht 'Tango II', shown here at anchor off Porqeurolles Island in the Mediterranean South of France.
Thank you Paul Wright, for submitting this pic of your cruising yacht 'Tallulah'.
The owner of 'Second Star' tells us...
"This one is my Hunter 33e (now Marlow-Hunter 33e) "Second Star". The "e" stands for extended cockpit. It has a drop-down, walk-through transom that opens up the cockpit significantly and serves as a helm seat when up. I bought the boat new in 2014 and my longest cruise to date was from Annapolis MD to its slip in Alexandria, VA with my daughter. Of course, my intent is to take it on longer cruises like circling the DELMARVA peninsula, which would give me offshore time off the Delaware coast. It's a very comfortable cruising yacht of moderate size."
With their long, narrow and light hull and tall fractional rig these elegant sailboats have had many successful single and double-handed victories in distance races both coastal and offshore.
The owner of 'Averisera' tells us:
"She has a very narrow hull with two good sea berths amidships. The galley is just aft of the berths, sink to starboard and cooker to port. Step down from companionway just aft of galley; seating to change into or out of wet gear without making sleeping area wet. Head all the way forward is OK but not great. Low free board means sink does not drain on port tack. Hull form is very, very sea kindly. Beautiful sailor, easy to steer in wide range of conditions and points of sail. For a small boat she is a competent cruising yacht."
If so, and you'd like to see an image of her on this page, please click here to send your pic to sailboat cruising.com and we'll do the rest.
The Nicholson 32 Mk 10 cruising yacht in the pic is very dear to me; 'Jalingo 2' she's called - and I used to own her. Dick McClary, previous owner.
