I would never part with my dream to help someone persue theirs. My boat has alot more experience out there by design and as an individual boat than I do...I feel safe on her. THough in a way that sounds selfish, my goal is to share my dream, give someone something spectacular

If I dreamed bigger I would still be just dreaming now and for the rest of my life, Besides smaller boat do have certain advantages over bigger boats....The "it's bigger so it must be better so I should get bigger" is an American misconception. Back when I used to work in the yacht industry I would watch people look at the boat they could afford with all the bells and whistles and get the next size or two up (barebones) because it was bigger. They would be so in debt and the boat would be so under equipped they never went any where. They did have a bigger boat though.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I stopped looking at boats after we bought this one, it fulfilled all of our needs.
If I could have anything I guess it would be a brand new 45' cat but that's soooooo far out of my price range.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

The boat is only part of your dream, what you do with it is the most important part and that is just as individual as the boat itself.
For some their dream consists of getting the biggest, fanciest most expensive boat possible with and they never do much more than impress their friends with it. Partly because they are happy with that, partly because they don't (and can't) want to leave the static lifestyle that allowed them to amass the money and/or debts that made the boat possible.
To some the boat is a new lifestyle, a different home....but keeping thier land ties and then there are those (like me) who have sloughed off all of the sociological constraints, ties etc and who just want to explore the world as best he can on what I have...for me I want to offer someone else the opportunity to go with.
I am getting tired of people telling me not to live my dream because my boat doesn't live up to their standards

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I thought this was a dream boat thread not a "I dream of sailing on $500/mo thread".

It sounds like you are worrying too much about other people's dreams and what they think of yours. This is important because ...?

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

If I were to build a "dream boat" it would have to be a Wharram. I've always liked the crew they seem to attact.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

If money was not an issue I'd go for a Simpson Offshore 45.



Since money was an issue (and has become an even bigger issue lately) and after we crunched some numbers we had to set our sights a little lower.



Bateau.com TW28 which we'll modify (stretch) out to 31' 6". If you can't afford to buy your dream boat, build it. So far we're on track to have this thing in the water in two years and the total investment will be around $55K Cdn. all in.

And So it Begins . . . Knottybuoyz' New Project

I know it's not sail boat but it really doesn't matter what you go boating in as long as you go right?

I like to sail alone occasionally and that's not fun with too big boat..

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I dream long and lean...any of Chuck Paine's Bermuda series (like the Apogee 50 or Kanters) or Dashew's Sundeers.
