Ted Hood's Nefertini. The picture doesn't do her justice.

As for sailboats you can actually own, the Hinckley Bermuda 40 or the Cherubini 44 ketch.

Way out of my or anyone I know's price range, but as an alternative to the S&S classics, I have always loved the clean look of Wally's boats.





It's really hard to pick from them...

To paraphrase a book title, Who's Wally?

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 used to do a lot of racing with and against some guys who crewed on Holger Danske when the boat won the Newport - Bermuda Race one year on corrected time. The weather was such that there was practically no upwind sailing in the race that year, which greatly favored that boat.

I've always loved spirit yachts:
Spirit Yachts Modern Classic Yachts
and the hoek's:
Hoek Brokerage

There are tons of other neo-classics that I love but these two jump to mind..

The beautiful boat mentioned on pages one and two of this thread named Holger Danske is in Hobart Tasmania Australia. She is in mint condition and is for sale.

I think there are a number of beautiful bopats, but I agree the Valiant 40 is a corker. In addition, there is an Australian design called a Cole 43 which is truly beautiful.

Oh by the way, I don't own Holger Danske and don't even know the owner. She is professionally maintained though.

The first of the two Wallys must be Esence or a sister. She's 143 feet long, full carbon and rumored to cost upwards of 30 million Euros. I don't know too much about her but she was our neighbour and a competitor at the race Hublot Palma Vela in Mallorca (the Mediterranean) in mid April. She looks just as good in real life as in the photo. Lots of slick super yacht smart details. Very clean looks. And the dimentions are weird in a way. The huge boat has the proportions of a much smaller one, and seing people on it and in the mast etc is always mind boggling. Racing, she wasn't as fast as one might think. Some Wally 120s were ahead in all the races, and others were some of the time. This might be due to better crews though, as some boats there were highly pro driven.

Also, being mainly a multihull guy, I could not help noticing; if I were in my 18 foot Hobie Wild Cat (Formula 18) I would have been easily way faster than any of the multi million Euro yachts, upwind and downwind. (The TP 52s though might have given the F18 a fight upwind in the light winds) And it would be much more fun to sail it. Closer to the water - more fun! And thinking of the "fun per dollar" issue... Wow, this comparison does make it obvious!
Either way, as the topic here is looks, I can testify:
Yes she is stunning!
