Jon, I was not talking about race boats. Fact is that sailors here, I mean old retired couples are buying +50ft sailboats. They can only manage those boats because they have a lot of help from electric and hydraulic systems and they are buying the boats because they are reliable and they know it.
I am talking about mass production boats. Compared to cars the boat you were talking about would be a expensive modified high tech sports car, not a Mercedes and those are know to be fun but highly unreliable. A Mercedes would be that Halberg-Rassy that I had posted about
I bet that Trintella has more than 10 years. Am I wrong?
