I think you could make my pics look better. This boat is currently owned by a German family who is cuising full time. They love the boat.
Yes I can but you have to learn how to do it

Go here (or to a similar site):

Open an account (free), post there the photos and then post the link on the thread. You will get big photos.

Very nice boat. Only the keel does not make my style. But the design looks sharp. How many years has that design?

That was the type of boat that more than 10 years ago I thought I want. In fact I have modified an existent design and contacted the boat designer to see if it could be made. That's before the crisis and I had more money Anyway I quickly discover that was not really the boat I wanted and on the same type of boat (aluminium passage maker) I went for another design.
