What replica would you have if you could have it?

What are your dream boats?
I've been looking at spray replicas and now I'm curious if you could live and or cruise on a replica of a ship what would you choose?
I'm specifically thinking traditional sailing ships but dont let me tell you what to love lol.

Not big on replicas but I do like retro-inspired boats with modern underpinnings like for example Jakatan which is a modern take on a gaff-rigged schooner.

Re: What replica would you have if you could have it?

As humans, depending on belief, we either exist as a capricious product of a capricious environment, showered by the remnants of the very celestial bodies we steer by, or, we exist at the will and grace of a greater power, however, every once in a while, the sun is eclipsed by the moon, planets align, and something special happens.

This, is what happened with the case of the two following vessels. Humans, created something that is much more than themselves, the romance of sailing is what seems shape their hulls, their sizes, leave you breathless and what they mean is so much more than their price tags. I would love to own the originals, or replicas of these.

I could do well with a crew and a replica of "Moonbeam of Fife III" I mean, look at this thing, sure she's a lot of work but this, is the very boat that made me look at sailing. Her sails seem to tell a story of how far the understandings behind leveraging two dynamic forces, water and wind, were at during her time, impressive really.



I know the price tag on this one is a bit bigger, but my goodness, if you really, and I mean REALLY have the money, charter this one, she's the Maltese Falcon. Dynarig/Falconrig, rotating masts, and she races. This vessel represents how ingenious we humans can get in order to pursue things of leisure. Perini Navi did an outstanding job.



There is only one problem with owning either of these, I wouldn't be home much.

You don't quite realize now beautiful sailboats are until you pay attention to them, I can safely say that as someone who once preferred motoryachts.

Cheers!

Re: What replica would you have if you could have it?

To liveaboard or to play aboard?

"Reliance, the boat that defended the American Cup in 1903, is the most extreme boat ever sailed in the cup: 27.4 m long at the float and 43.5m out of all measured by the bompress tip at the end of the boom was 60 m. Born by the genius of what is considered to be the greatest inventor of modern sail, Nathaniel Herreshoff."

So easy peasy to sail single-hand in strong winds.

Re: What replica would you have if you could have it?

Id happily sail a nice modern replica of my 40 year old Swanson 42. It would certainly deal with some of the maintenance demands.
