Re: Interesting Sailboats

Is it likely that the Varianta line will ever make it to the US? I wish that one of the US manufacturers would take a page outta Hanse's book and try to build a lower cost boat that could be good for families to start getting out there. That would be a base price of just under 100K for a new 37' boat. That is a SIGNIFICANT difference than anything available here and it is a great design for sailing rather than a compromise boat.

Are you listening out there builders? We wonder why there are not so many young families getting into sailing. If you scale this approach down, what could you have for a 25 or 30 footer?
