Re: Anything like Borresen BB10

This type of boat (long and narrow) is quite popular in Scandinavia. There are plenty of similar boats, to very affordable prices.

Some known similar danish designs are
Aphrodite 101 / Bianca 101 / Elvström 101 (same design)
Ylva
Molich X
(not an exhaustive list)
These all stems from the 70/80-ties, more modern examples are eg the
Luffe(s), Faurby, ...

These kind of boats are even more popular in Sweden, where there are many different designs. Known from the same period are the Swede 30 (S-30), Swede 55, ad later on Swede 40 / 45. Also Wasa had a series 30 -- 55.

Peter Norlin designed some in a similar way, as the Avance 33 / 36, Omega 42 (OK, we are getting bigger).

There is also, from the same time, the Cayenne 42 and the corrsponding Carrera Helmsman. The more usual Helmsmans are Lady and Senorita (both similar to the BB10) ... list is long.

Many of these had their popuarity peak 30 years ago, prices are low today.
OK it is far from the US! Some of these can probably be found also in the US, otherwise there is always the possibility in buying in Scandinavia and get it transported to the US.
