Fort Lauderdale Stunning Ketch
1 Attachment(s)
Saw those huge masts from across the bridge. Had to go investigate and wow so impressive. I couldn't get any closer to it but the shape of the hull and the color and the size of it. Any guesses on length? I coulda get the name of the boat to investigate it. Maybe she will be there again tomorrow. Anyways had to share

Might be the METEOR it was just painted in palm beach

now that looks like a real boat :thumb:

It just might very well be the METEOR. Just researched it and it looks like it. It's HUGE!! Pic does not do it justice. I couldn't walk away from that boat.

Hiya BoatGirl! Maybe you'd like to spend a week or two sailing it? :whistling: :D

Going to behave now!

Bohemian17 17-06-2013 20:48

My friend is the captain I think its 167 feet. I got to take a tour a couple of years ago . Very well built and sails awesome. They sail her as often as they can vs. Motoring .

Now I'm not sure that's the boat because of the British flag. But I'm not sure how they have the boat registered I think one of the guys from Nova Scotia so maybe that I don't know how that ties in

boatgirl123 18-06-2013 06:31

Amazing. You are lucky you could tour it. It looks spectacular. I was watching videos of it. Ill see if she is still around today. Maybe captain would give me a tour if owner not around lol.

Bohemian17 18-06-2013 07:06

Sorry just spoke to the captain the METEOR is still in palm beach. So you will have to do some recon lol

boatgirl123 18-06-2013 07:50

Thanks bohemian. Crap what boat is in Fort Lauderdale? Yes recon work in order. Well I could always go up There and pay the M a visit. Not too far especially for that sight. Thanks anyways!!

We have this one in our marina occasionally....

I was thinking of up-sizing, but this might be too much for me.....:whistling::whistling:

The white speck in the foreground is a 30' runabout....:confused:

@happy. Upgrades are always a good thing. Ill be ready to first mate it with you. That is beautiful.

@motion30. Maybe if you picked up the dummies book and learned how to sail you might be as interesting as a sailor and not a ho him motor boater. Lol. Until then you can kiss my a**
Hope all is well. Kisses.

Maybe I should inquire then....

It was the masts I saw on the other side of the breakwater that made my jaw drop....

Pictures of a sister ship I found later....

Should be enough room....:D
