What Is the Most Beautiful Boat in the World ?

What Is The Most Beautiful Boat In The World?

This should spark some controversy. Please do not say your boat unless it really is the most beautiful boat in the world.

You know, the Morris M series boats have really nice lines.

Most beautiful but not too practical is the Columbia Saber. 32 feet LOA and 6 foot beam. Looks kind of like the one Stillraining posted.

These kind of posts are always a lot of fun because you are going to get answers all over the board. I know we've already had the ugliest contest so this should be more fun.

regards

Joli,

I watched Endeavour pass under the Golden Gate while being a passenger in a DC3. Later I walked the dock, and ran my hand along her beam. What a beautiful lady. Besides that, in the real world it's the boat I sail.....i2f

Another vote for Endeavour! I was on the dock next to her a while back in Newport and probably spent over an hour just drooling over the beautiful details, I also came alongside another day in the dinghy and was amazed for another good long look. A truly beautiful vessel.

I am going with the Herreshoff 12 1/2, I really like some of the Lyle Hess boats like the BCC, the Falmouth Cutter and the Nor'sea, Dark Harbor 20 is a nice boat and the Hans Christian 31 is real pretty. I have to say my boat, the Blackwatch 24 has some beautiful lines too.

I love the Cherubini as well, but I still love double enders more than any other type of boat - this one isn't too shabby.Click image for larger version
