Don't know if it's the most beautifull boat in the world, but in my corner "Mayan" wins hands down.

This should spark some controversy. Please do not say your boat unless it really is the most beautiful boat in the world.
A Cherubini Yacht. Of course! There is a reason it is called "Worlds best Boat"

Re: What Is the Most Beautiful Boat in the World ?

But it isn't called the "World's Most Beautiful Boat", and that is the thread topic!

Wow, old thread. I just saw this thread for the first time and haven't read all 140 posts, but I can't pick just one boat. Or even type of boat. Or generation. Or era.

Frankly, I love the classics, but detest the "over-classic'd" over-the-top schooners and square rigger bastardizations, etc (only half of Antigua race week holds my attention). (don't worry Cherubini Yacht, you are classic in my mind).

But I also swoon for the clean lines of Wally and Gunboat, and the technology of Maltese Falcon, etc. Really, can any of you look at a Wally and not forget your names?

And the testosterone of the current AC72's and some of the round the world racers - they are beautiful to me also.

I have a big shrug about Oysters and others of that ilk that most swoon for.

I have even found particular models of Hunters and Beneteaus that I thought hit the beauty mark squarely (but most miss terribly).

And any purpose-built boat is pure beauty in my eye - fishing trawlers, tugs, even barges - as long as they don't compromise in their purpose in any way, they are beautiful to me.

I can say that pretty much any IOR boat and the 1980-1990 charter-purpose boats are the ugliest to me (Morgan, Irwin, etc). And the leaky-teakies. I just don't get the Taiwanese pirate boat thing. ARGH...

And if you come up with a steely as an example, it better be a good design that is well-executed. I have seen those (although few) and have duly worshiped them.

Ain't never seen a ferrocement that could be mentioned within a mile of this thread.

Would tend to agree there, just delivered a 52'er down to Ibiza. Every last bit of it close to perfect.

Re: What Is the Most Beautiful Boat in the World ?

Eye of the beholder and all that. why cant we simply respect each others definition of beauty? I mean its hardly an objective test.
