Which proves that dreams may be unlimited but the number of boats worth dreaming of is not!

They all look like excellent cruising boats. I met an American fellow over here with he's 28 (might have even been the 31 total length). on the slip after sailing her out from the US. Wow, she was one beautiful solid ship. He said he still averaged just under 7 knots Panama to the Marquasas.

The Bristol Channel Cutter hull is likely going to Ladysmith BC to be finished there. I believe the shop there has the rights to that design.
I have been drooling over their website!

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

Although I own my dream offshore boat, a Baltic 38DP, I have found a new dream boat if in future I want to concentrate on daysailing. Lovely thing.

Haha just kidding, I have much better taste than that... I would like a hinckley Bermuda 40 simple, great build quality and good looking. Nothing too big.

Currently dreaming of a Ludders 33. Just the right size for where I'm at now. Great quality and beautiful lines. What can I say I dream cheap! Or maybe just to ignorant of pricey boats.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

As far as an "achievable dream" I'd say I'm there, it would take alot for me to choose another boat....alot more than will probably be possible. To lust after a 90' schooner is nice...but would leave me on the dock doing so...so I'm happy kicking back in the hammock of my 30' cutter...the next step it to find a more pleasent place to do it and someone to share the experience with.

There is a boat like this on Lake Norman(Davis yacht club) that wins every race!! The captain of the boat has lots of experiance,maybe thats the reason the boat wins so much ....

What's Your Dream Boat ?

Long, long ago and far far away, had a slip near the commissioning area for Nordic Yachts. Each night, on the way home from the office, I would check our little pocket cruiser, Mull Ranger 26, and wander over to the unattended Nordic that was currently being fitted. I am sure the riggers would have to clean the decks of my drool marks the next morning.

Thirty years later......yesterday it ceased being a dream. N44, hull number 3 is returning home this spring!!! I can't believe it happened.

Now, we shall see if the dream matches reality.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

My "no holes barred dream boat" was tied up 100' from me when I lived in the marina at the other end of town....she is the schooner Alcyone a 65' downsized Gloucester Fishing schooner.

Re: What's Your Dream Boat ?

I have this enticing dock queen that gets motored out to Lake Michigan and back to the dock. She needs alot of work, but someday the owner will part with her..I love the old classic lines of the Columbia 50's....my boat porn of the day..
