Re: anyone sen this boat in person?

I've never been on it but I've gone past it a few times. Don't know if that helps.

You should google it. Some of the greatest motor yachts ever built.

Asking whether a Feadship is worth a look is like asking whether a Bentley is worth a drive.

Re: Anyone Seen This Boat In Person?

I'd hate to have to replace any of the planking $$$$$. But I guess if one could afford the slip/haul-out then whats a few pieces of hard to find wood. $100K is an inviting # for a less then adequate sponsor.

BS alert!!!

Red light!

I just read this on the ad: "INSPIRATION is the oldest running FEADSHIP on the water today." Here's the link: 1952 Feadship Motoryacht Power New and Used Boats for Sale - www.yachtworld.co.uk

That's total crap. Feadship Hull #1, its keel having been laid at the beginning of WW2, is on the same dock as Bash's boat. It goes out several times a month, and was out twice during the America's Cup World Series a week ago. Its first mate was in my saloon this morning for a cup of coffee.

Hard to understand why yacht brokers are so unconcerned about telling the truth.

Ah. Nah. Cash is king. No debt for me other than child support. I am free and clear.

Re: Anyone Seen This Boat In Person?

from what I understand that would be the same boat. the early Feadships were all one offs of different lengths and styles. where did you get this photo?
