Greg Young Yachts??

Any one have any personal experience with Greg Young Yachts? Seen one? Been on one? Been passed by one?
They are some pretty hot looking boats with a bunch of neat features.
I haven't ever seen any talk of them here on CF.

I did a Google search and all I see are designs and partially completed boats. I do not see any completed boats floating on the water. That's not a whole lot to discuss.

Do you have some pics of her or others under sail? It would be nice to see a design I am not familiar with.

Earthling did the Bris to Gladstone last year and we anchored up with her at Pancakae Creek, and Camira is the big purple charter boat up in the whitsundays. Search for camira whitsundays and you will find it.

Re: Greg Young Yachts??

I have a Bull 7000,one of two in the States. A centre boarder 2000 lb fractional rig,articulating bowsprit rocketship! Raced in 3 Swiftsure regattas,all kinds of offshore weather Pacific NW,and is indestructable. Top speed seen 23 knots,planes at 5,75 upwind. For a 23 ft dinghy which can match Melges 24 performance in most conditions,it is well designed,innovative with the articulating bowsprit(unmatched even today) there is nothing bad I can say. If this boat had been around in the old IOR days as a quarter tonner,nothing would have come close! We have recorded downwind speeds of 15 knots in 15 knots apparent . Found myself wondering what a 30 or 40 ft Bull would do. They are around,in NZ and Australia. Look at Gregs site.
