Came upon this 49' in our recent cruise
in the Sea of Cortez
. One of the original Erik Larouge designs. You can see the heritage in the shapes. A very nice couple have it. MeerKat was built in N. Carolina I think. Lots of room and very solid feeling. Has differnt company name but I do not recall
it... One of my favorite designers..... no doubt.
Parked next to them was this rocket number. "Pantera" self sesigned and built by Bob Smith of Victoria B.C. He does 1.5 the wind
speed in the cruising mode Up to about 15 kts. of wind
, all by himself!
