Rakuqueen,
The Gypsy Soul is/was (now retired) a Tayana. I went aboard really loved the layout. It is huge inside -to me anyway.

Gypsy Soul Sailing

Vicariously living through Mr Ben Edelstein for the past years, I met him when he came home June 4, 2008.
Enjoy

Wow! There's some awesome boats out there! I love looking at and reading about other folks boats (gives me ideas for our boat!).
We have a 1983 Newport 33' sailboat that we love! Newport boats were made by Capital Yachts along with the Gulf and Neptune boats. She would be considered a racer/cruiser. She's fast enough, and very stable since almost half of her 11,000 pounds is in the form of ballast (6' fin). A wide fin keel and well balanced spade rudder with wheel steering. When we replaced the thru-hulls this spring we found the hull to be 5/8" - 11/16" thick below the waterline. The deck is 1-1/8" thick counting the 1/2" core, she's solid. The cockpit is large enough for socializing, but not too big. Down below is an honest 6'2" of headroom. A u-shaped galley, comfortable setees, quarter berth/ nav. station with a chart drawer and room for electronics. Large head, and v-berth with a closet, etc... Onboard storage is adequate for fairly long-range cruising (the wife and I take it all!). 75 gallons water, 45 gallons diesel with a 25hp Universal diesel (motoring range is just over 500 miles). We've added the usual; refrigeration, additional house batteries, solar panels, radar, heater (we're not in Mexico yet!), and replaced or upgraded important items. She's perfect for us!

My boat is still under construction (in South Africa), and will hopefully be finished by end of October this year.

It's a Dix 43, with centre cockpit and steel hull.
See this link for reports on the progress and pictures:

Sunbeam 37

Our boat is a Sunbeam 37 built by Schoechl Yachts in Austria. We purchased her earlier in the year and she sits on the hard in Florida. We are in the process of outfitting for a trip down the Thorny Path to Puerto Rico. No good pictures of her yet.
