I too, the monkey, was also at the boatshow on VIP Thursday. I was dissapointed in that nothing caught my eyes as being new in the vendor department, and the boats were all out of my league.
Two interesting and unusual things I caught
Farnova Yachts, out of china
. A small table set up in the corner of a tent. No visitors. They make a 48 and 52. What's interesting is the thoughts that China
could be a source of affordable production boats in the future, and that because of their affluence, you might be seeing a lot of rich chinese boat owners in the future.
The other was Ryder Boats Presto 30, which Thor Finns Expeditions had on site. I'm becoming a fanatic for cat-ketch rigs.
