Any boat with a slip, is the most beautiful boat in the world, hands down!

Probably because we all think that our opinion is the absolute pinnacle of opinions. Anyway, I still think that you are gorgeous, no matter what you sail.

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

I like multihulls, but hard for me to think of them as a thing of beauty. I think if you asked random people on the street to choose between t he two you would get 90% liking an oyster 50 etc and <10% a multi..... I've been wrong before though... (once :>) ) While a flying tri is exiciting... it rather looks like a portion of a bridge that has come loose...

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

the intelligence of the random person on the street isn't high enough to register, and I could care less what 90% of the hoi polloi like. Why do you hold that as a standard?

Coops.
The fast multihulls pictured equate to the dolphin in your Avatar Coops - beautiful, the leaping cow, well, could be equated to others.
