Beauty in my eyes

I have always admired the functional lines of both classic sailing ships and working vessels. For me, the real beauty comes from the melding of ability, function, simplicity, and stout construction that inspire my dreams of adventure asea. Number 1 would be a Fisher 46. A damn close 2nd place would have to be Dashew's Boewolf .Click image for larger version

There was a Fisher 20 that was for sale in England a while back and I found that to be a very pretty boat too.

We own an Ingrid and whenever I walk or row away I always think of her as the prettiest, but in a traditionally-built kind of way. The most elegant vessel I've ever seen are the Concordia yawls- you can hardly belive wood can be shaped to make that transom and counter...

I think the Concordia actually wins it hands down.

Unbusted

The boat is a one off named Holger Danske and was designed by Aage Walsted back in the 1960's - I think he was pissed at Bob Perry for "stealing" his stern for the Valiant 40. You can certainly see the resemblance. There are more pics of the boat at the site I took the other pic from - if I can figure out how to do a link to the site I will.

I notice most people go for the classic old boats.

Thats cute but it reminds me of a traveler we met inland the other day: "I'm single and will remain so because women don't like my design of house and I will not change it. I like PLASTIC. Everything in my house is plastic, minuimal furniture but all plastic."

So best looking boats for me? Oyster. Closely followed by Tayana 54+ and the big Passport....

Don'r forget the Swans, true works of art.

I cannot not mention my Cape Dory 30, I can sit and stare at her for hours! pretty lines, stout construction, bronze everywhere (sigh) she is so sweet...

If I won the Lottery the boat I'd choose for looks and character would be one of these built to 100% Lloyds and internals/externals to my specifications..
