To offset your maintenance costs and upkeep, you could always buy stock in a varnish company.

Re: Now, this lady is surely trouble! :)

She will only be trouble if you bought her

But it's a nice trouble!

Maybe the beauty without trouble on an Aluminium classic one?:

Varnish below decks - not so bad.

Lots of varnish on deck is a nightmare - unless you have a Gilligan.

No goal posts on the deck for playing football or soccer. Don't buy it!


this 50 footer looks similar in fibreglass... http://sailboatdata.com/viewrecord.asp?class_id=4495

Re: Now, this lady is surely trouble! :)

I think you've figured out the answer already...

You'd be the envy of all, if you ever could take enough time off of maintenance to get her on the water!

My problem is that while I'm not compulsive about most things, I am a compulsive and pathological caretaker of things that I own. Consequently, I need to buy things that are easy to maintain. Currently thinking of doing that with my house.

Beautiful though.

Pete

Re: Now, this lady is surely trouble! :)

... two other 'options in this league' with a non-wooden hull:

2001 Olsenyachts/ DK Nissen 72 One Off Sail Boat For Sale -

and / or

Hoek Brokerage ยป TC 80 Palmyre

Regards,

Carsten

PS: If I hit the Jackpot either one of these could be mine ;-), I personally would not go for a wooden hull, much more maintenance needed ...

Well similar...as a practical fat lady is from a beauty Queen even if in what regards beauty in women and boats that's mostly a question of opinion.





The Hoeck design is a classical boat with a modern fast underbody the FD 12 has a dated old underbody.

Re: Now, this lady is surely trouble! :)

She is a beauty that needs a crew to maintain her. Just like a starlet on a movie set. I don't even have enough funds to see the pictures much less dream of having her.

But, again, she is a beauty.

If you can afford it, go for it. Beautiful. You'll be the envy of everyone else. You only live once. Just forgo that extra full cream coffee you have each day and you will easily afford this.

And you can always get another partner, perhaps a younger model to go with the lines of the boat.

Same with compulsions (extreme case of OCD actually) and couldn't agree more with every single word!

Our time is limited in This life... There is nothing truly known about the next... If you have the means and the passion you should buy this piece of art and sail her to her limits. The family will understand ....eventually.

The FD looks very much like a Brewer design known as Pan Oceanic. http://www.panoceanic.net/index.shtml
