Lots of new blue water boats out there. There are more ocean crossings by small pleasure craft than in the history of the world.

I thought that big "R" on the sail was for "Retro."

Who says it is not?

Like someone said, plenty of new modern bluewater boats on the market (if you really need them and most of all if you have the money for them).

But retro bluewater boats are on the verge of disappearing. There are still some made by American/Chinese builders but almost inexistent on Europe and the few that still remain are not selling because nobody wants them. By the way Rustler as new line of modern bluewater boats. Maybe they will put a M on the sails to differentiate them from the Retro ones

But that is not an outdated design, that is a traditional boat and a completely different matter. That's for the ones that like to sail the real thing like it was sailing and cruising a century ago and that has its charms, like driving a beautiful classic old car.

I can understand why you want one since I had a 80 year's old traditional boat from that family but Portuguese tradition related instead of British. A distant relative of the Caravelas, a Canoa. Charming thing to sail even if charm has nothing to do with efficiency but certainly with sailing pleasure.

I still remember what was coming to an anchorage sailing (I rarely used the engine) and see all the other cruisers taking photos

The Traditional Style boat has appeal to those who like the lines (design), the history, and the "charm" of wood and old styled details.

I love them!

I also liked your points above.
