Aren't there another couple of examples or has the GFC taken them down ? i remember when I was doing the YachtWorld circuit before we bought our girl that I spent some considerable time drooling over a couple of Euro boats that were of that semi classic style but very modern underwater.

I'll try and find them Beautiful boats, either steel or aluminium.


edit .... Bestewind was one of them .... the other boat in this pic is a Van de Stadt built by the same yard.





and this is the other ..... very similar to the previous boat Paulo posted or is it the same ? Not sure.




edit ... she's a Puffin 42
