Jeez, I dunno, not sure I'd want to be in any FRP hull in ice no matter who built it.

Unhappy Your Boat

Not having a boat of my own , I would have to say that your boat is the best, whatever that might be.

Maltese Falcon without a doubt! That thing is incredible. Now if I could only afford it and its crew! Seriously, the post that caught my eye stated that the best one is the one you have. Have to agree on that. The one I have is the one I place all my faith in. Rock solid and comfortable at sea, reliable, and mine. You'll get potentially a million answers to this thread.

I vote Deerfoot. New Zealand boats in general have to be tough just to be able to sail anywhere from New Zealand.

The German Frers designed Idylle 15.5 is a very strong offshore cruiser. She has taken me through a hurricane. Thousands of sailing miles and a wonderfull full time liveaboard vessel.

Windward Passage, is one of the most beautfull sail boat in my opinion. It is almost 30 years since the first time I got to see her, nd still today peoples are talking about her... Some one knows if the Windward Passage is built out of wood ?

good winds,

Gustavo Pacheco

My friend, on contract in the OR at the hospital would fall over if you called him up and offered him a sail.

Windward Passage was built on a beach in the Bahamas in the 60's and made out of wood. Originally designed as a ketch. Her first lead keel was also molded by digging a mold in the beach.

A difficult question.

I admire the Valiants, well built and thought through .
Bowman, a British boat designed by Chuck Payne excel in all ways, and in the same vein the Morris yacht, also a Chuck Payne design.

Hallberg Rassy have an excellent reputation but I haven't sailed one.Always seem a bit character less to me!

I think mine is. See picture at left. Its a 58 ft Tasell All Season. We've lived aboard for 5 years. It is comfortable, fast, and easily handled by two. Having said that, she is now for sale as we are moving ashore in St. Maarten (see Yacht World).
