Good day everyone,
First I must apologize for the upbruphtness with my last reply. It was that I was very much ready to make an offer for an Allmand 35' and I could not find very much detail on the Allmand 35' and found it very odd that no one responded to a request of help, eventhou it received quite of few views. With that in mind it seem that other people were also looking for insite on this request.
Chuck, thank you for that information, I was glad to see that this year is consider a Coastal Cruiser. Do you know if the 1984 35' Tri-Cabin, was made more structurely sound than the 1982? Was two years enough for them to see what was needed to be upgraded to the boat for a more and stronger endurance, also more capacity for storage. The one that I did a walk through on, did display very shallow bilge which threw me for a curve, everything that you would consider a place for storage, expl: V-berth, settee's and bilge, was no storge. The Vee berth has the water tank store their. The port settee has the holding tank and the starboard had CNG tanks. The 1984 Allmand was stated on a website that the boat was a blue water passage boat. Does that mean from one island to another? Also the Broker stated the 1982 was a blue water passage boat, I was just afraid that he was just trying to hipe the boat to sell. I do understand that almost any boat can do long passages as long as weather permitting! That doesn't justify a durable Blue Water boat for me though!
Thank you Jack, you have always given a very true and valuable insight I really appricate your opinion! glad to see your words here. Yes you are the right people to ask, that's why I come to the website to read and understand request people ask, it is turely educational. True these boats are shoal draft which makes them a little tender for heavier winds. I just thought they were a durable boat being made by a strong history background Power Boat company! Jack I do understand that this isn't any one's choice for their long distance sail boat, "now". But when you were searching for your ideal boat did you not question everything that you consider? I'm just afraid of making wrong/bad choice. I'm trying to get as much insight as possible which helps me to decide to go for it or continue my search. Your help is always encouraging! Thank you!
Thank you Tambadil/Chad, I have check that website out many times. There are some many boats that are not on their list, which is why it brings me here and other website trying to find out what is worthy or some thing to consider or just a nightmare. I have consider emailing John Neale to request his service for an hour for it's only $100.00! I myself love the Hans Christian I have a picture of the Hans Christian 33' my dream boat as a screen saver, but its a lot out of my financial reach! The next closest to the 33' Hans is the 36' Islander Freeport, almost set up the same. I just don't care for the aft port windows, way to big!
Oh last question, Does any one know what the Allmand 35' Tri-Cabin 1982-1984 is rated!
Thanks for everyone's input it really is appreciated! Please understand we all are in need of the power of sugguestion! Again I apologize for being a smarty pants!
