Re: Interesting Sailboats

All beautiful boats there. It sounds like you take euro style to be said with a bad intent which I didn't get. The last picture in your post is what I would certainly refer to as a euro style which I happen to really like but those lines (mainly the arch shape to the cabin top front to back) are reflected in 4-5 of the boats pictured.

As far as American style, just take euro style and subtract the style and innovation and there you have 'american' style. American buyers just seem to like tried and true and with the state of the american sailing scene it's really hard for a boat builder to want to take chances so hard to blame them.

Personally I am trying to figure out how to get some of these beautiful boats over here to my neck of the woods!
