What breed is that? Not one of the new Seawinds?

Boom looks high, but from scale of other objects in photo, not 50 feet. Are you sure? The main deck must then be close to 20 feet above the water?

If LOA is 70 feet, boom height would indeed be 50 feet. Yikes!

Like most things in "Singers", high rise. Does it come with a bamboo scaffold?

I agree the boom is high off the water but 50'? You get no points for exaggeration. The guy on the dock is half way up a 8' ladder, working on the underside of the roof on the dock. That makes the top of that roof 12' at most. the boom is double that height in the picture.

MAYBE 24'

Maybe you dont like it but really? 50'?

Re: Don't Buy A Wedding Cake

Yep, if it's a 70 ft boat, a ruler on the picture will tell you that the boom height is about 1/3 or the length, or close to 25ft.

SunReef 68 Supreme? Check out their website.

Sorry StuM, boom height closer to 50 foot than 25.

Although we know those Seawind owners like to exaggerate, especially about speed, this time Andrew is correct! 😀

Re: Don't Buy A Wedding Cake

Assuming a waterline length of 68', it looks like roughly 25' from waterline to boom based on some rough calculations. In the attached image, the horizontal red lines are evenly spaced apart.

Based on the CharterWorld review, this is a massive boat.

Re: Don't Buy A Wedding Cake

Whatever the boom height turns out to be, that is one FUGLY boat. How can they design such a travesty?

I'll echo DH: "Gack"!

I love it!

Not because it looks good, but now hopefully everyone will make fun of SunReefs instead of Lagoons.
